Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride is also known as CPVC gets manufactured by chlorinating the PVC polymer. As it gets chlorinated, it obtains some unique quality and chattels like ductility and the capability to withstand extreme weather conditions. Owing to its chlorine content CPVC pipes are excellent with chemical resistance, primarily to acids, alkalis, and salts. It is due to that CPVC pipes are the ideal choice for the chemical process industry. CPVC pipes and fitting are also known to possess an ability to withstand physical and chemical degradation that helps offering longer life.
Here I present you the benefits of CPVC pipes that make them ideal for industrial water process:
Corrosion Resistance: Corrosion is a common and ongoing problem in the industrial field. CPVC pipes and fittings are corrosion resistant and they exhibit superior resistance to both internal and external corrosion and virtually eliminates process leaks and flow restrictions thereby eliminating problems of pipe failure.
Easy to install – CPVC pipes and fittings provide an easy installation process. It can be easily installed by using few simple steps, which include solvent and cementing process. The process creates a highly reliable joint by chemically coalescing the pipe to the fitting. When it gets properly installed, a solvent cemented CPVC joint forms the strongest part of the entire system, offering more strength and durability. In addition to that CPVC pipes and fittings are light weighted and the installation process doesn’t require electricity, which makes them ideal for applications where electricity constantly fluctuates.
Require no or very little maintenance - CPVC pipes and the fitting system require very little maintenance if installed properly. Along with that, the external pipe coatings are not necessary because CPVC pipes and fittings remain unaffected even in the most aggressive soil and weather conditions. Contemplating to the facts a portion of CPVC piping needs replacements, which anticipates an easy repairing without the need for welders or lifting device to hoist the equipment into place.
Greater mechanical strength – CPVC pipes and fittings offer an impressive mechanical strength even at an elevated temperature at which industrial plants often operate. CPVC piping system can bear the extreme temperature of 180-degree F that is 82-degree C. In addition to that CPVC pipes and fittings maintains their pressure bearing capabilities for 50 or more years, which makes them durable and helps them in providing long-lasting performance.
These are the benefits that CPVC pipes and fittings offer to industrial water processing. Along with the above benefits, CPVC pipes and fittings are flexible, bendable, and are considered an ideal material for drinking water transmission.
