High Temperature Ratings
PVC thermoplastic can handle fluids at service temperaturesup to 140 F (60 C), allowing a wide range of processapplications, including corrosive fluids.
Lower Installation Costs
Substantially lower material costs than steel alloys or linedsteel, combined with lighter weight and ease of installation, canreduce installation costs by as much as 60% over conventionalmetal systems.
Higher Flow Capacity
Smooth interior walls result in lower pressure loss andhigher volume than conventional metal fittings.
PVC Chemical Resistance
PVC is generally inert to most mineral acids, bases,salts and paraffi nic hydrocarbon solutions. For moreinformation on PVC chemical resistance refer to theChemical Resistance of Rigid Vinyls Based on ImmersionTest, published by the GEON company.
