WHAT IS CORROSION?

Corrosion is a widespread and expensive problem that impacts every industry around the globe. In 2016, NACE International released the "International Measures of Prevention, Application and Economics of Corrosion Technology (IMPACT)" study, which estimated the global cost of corrosion at approximately $2.5 trillion (USD).

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.

Why CPVC Piping is More Energy-Efficient Than Metal Piping

Minimizing energy costs is one of the main areas of opportunity for plant owners looking to increase their bottom-line. At a macro level, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the industrial sector uses more energy than any other sector, consuming about 54% of the world’s total delivered energy. Engineers are always looking for ways to optimize system processes to improve energy efficiency to decrease energy expenses. Proper piping material selection is one opportunity to limit energy consumption. Take a look at how CPVC piping compares to metal piping in terms of energy efficiency across a system’s lifecycle, even before the pipe is installed.

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 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.
