Why Pipe Weight Matters

Weight matters for piping systems used for industrial applications. It makes sense that a lightweight piping system such as chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) is easier to transport, store and handle than heavier piping like steel.

Why CPVC Works in Wastewater Treatment Plants

Wastewater treatment processes are more complex than ever, complicated by stricter discharge and odor standards, increased plant flows, fewer sludge disposal options, stronger EPA piping regulations and tighter budgets. The good news is that opportunities exist to select piping materials that improve plant performance while reducing treatment costs and keeping facilities compliant.

CPVC is a Top Achiever in Antimicrobial Performance

Water presents the ideal environment for bacterial microbe development. Harmless microbials occur naturally in water and most are completely safe. Bacterial microbe growth in pipes, however, can affect water quality and create contamination problems. As microbes grow, they attach to the wetted surfaces in the water distribution system and protect themselves from disinfecting agents by forming microbial biofilms.

CPVC Shaves Installation Time for Wastewater Treatment Plants

Every year, wastewater treatment plants across the U.S. treat an estimated 61 cubic kilometers of wastewater – roughly the same volume of water that flows over Niagara Falls during a 12-month period. The wastewater treatment process requires large vessels and piping systems to convey and handle very polluted water and highly corrosive and caustic chemicals.

CPVC Limitations

Designers and engineers often have dozens of choices when specifying piping systems for industrial environments. Over the years, however, plastic piping such as chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) has become increasingly popular due to performance advantages such as outstanding corrosion resistance. As a thermoplastic, CPVC piping also offers optimum flow rates, safety benefits, ease of installation and little or no maintenance.

Corzan® CPVC Stands Up to the Elements

Many industrial environments such as the chemical processing industry, power generation plants, mineral processing and oil and gas operations use piping systems that are partially or completely installed outdoors. Piping systems used in outdoor applications must be able to maintain their basic physical properties after prolonged exposure to the elements – wind, rain/humidity, direct sunlight and seasonal and extreme temperatures.

Understanding Clean Air Compliance for Coal-Fired Power Plants

Americans today produce and consume more energy, drive more miles and live more comfortably than ever before while reaping the rewards of a cleaner environment. These facts are backed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) air quality data and refute some claims that air quality in the U.S. is getting worse.

Effective Communication Strategies for Ongoing Plant Upgrades

Playwright George Bernard Shaw once stated that “the single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” This statement applies to many life and business situations but is especially true for industrial facilities undergoing plant upgrades.
