CPVC Myths Debunked

Designers and engineers often specified metal piping for industrial applications in the past based on the material’s familiarity. Today, metal piping is still used in some environments because of misperceptions regarding chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) piping.

STRESS AND THE MODULUS OF ELASTICITY FOR CPVC PIPING VS. METAL

Industrial plants are challenging environments for piping systems, which are subject to extreme pressures, temperatures, stress and even impact. No matter what piping material is specified, piping system stresses must be considered and modifications made during system design to prevent issues that could require extensive repair or replacement.

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 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.
