CPVC Pipes and Fittings

INTRODUCTION

CPVC piping system is used for distribution of hot and cold water in residential and commercial buildings. Its superior performance, high quality, and competitive prices have replaced metal pipes. It is recognised worldwide and manufactured strictly as per international standards.


APPLICATION

  • CPVC pipes and fittings are used for water distribution in:
  • Residential buildings
  • Commercial buildings
  • Hospitals and Hotels
  • Industrial units

ADVANTAGES

  • The pipes are extremely light weight and hence are easy to carry and install.
  • They can withstand high temperature (820C) as well as high working pressure.
  • Just like PVC, CPVC pipes and fittings can be joined by Solvent Cement and hence does not require any special tools or skills to install.
  • Remodeling or repairing of existing systems of other material can be easily carried out with CPVC pipes using suitable connector components.
  • The pipes and fittings are highly affordable alternative to both Copper and GI piping systems and also reduce the overall cost as well as maintenance cost over service life, for the house owners.
  • The pipes will not pit or corrode regardless of the pH level in the water. As such the CPVC pipes are highly popular in places with more aggressive soil / or water and in concealed plumbing.
  • The heat loss from CPVC pipe is much less than from metallic pipe, making it a more energy efficient water supply system.
  • Due to lesser thickness than UPVC Plumbing pipes as per ASTM D 1785, the inside diameter is higher and thus the rate of frictional per unit length in CPVC pipe is much lower. Hence the pipes can carry more water under similar situation.
