The Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI) is the major North American trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry through research, technical expertise, education, and advocacy. The Building and Construction Division, which focuses on pressure piping systems used within buildings and on building premises, represents manufacturers that produce plastic piping systems for outdoor heat exchangers (ground loops), such as HDPE, PEX, PE-RT and PP. PPI supports industry efforts to update geothermal standards and codes (e.g. ANSI/CSA/IGSHPA C448, IAPMO’s UMC and USHGC, ICC’s IMC and IRC); works closely with IGSHPA, GEO and other related organizations; publishes documents and educational presentations about plastic piping systems for geothermal applications; and serves as a technical resource for information on plastic piping technologies.
Spanning three nations on two continents, GreyEdge Group consists of long-time independent professional PEs, hydro-geologists, drilling & system mechanical contractors, commissioning/verification specialists, project managers, modeling professionals, and financial experts. Cary Smith (right) of Sound Geothermal is the U.S. Operations Manager for the group.
Our members have a combined total of over 200 years of experience boosting millions of square feet of building performance. They identify precise energy transfer by optimized ground heat exchangers, creating more cost-effective installation methods.
GreyEdge members helped develop many of the industry’s “best practices” for inclusion into the ANSI/CSA 448 Standard for geo heat pump installations and have contributed training and code content for ASHRAE, IGSHPA, NGWA, and IAPMO. Their extensive experience in all facets of the ground source industry allows them to assist with your design, personnel training, or complete design, implementation and monitoring services.
