Delivering Reliability to Chemical Processing Industries

Transport harsh chemicals at extreme temperatures without corrosion concerns

Chemical processing plants create some of the most challenging environments for industrial piping systems. The combination of aggressive chemicals and high temperatures can compromise the long-term integrity of most piping materials, causing corrosion, process leaks and premature failures that lead to costly replacements.

Even the more expensive alloys, lined carbon steel, and non-metallic alternatives, such as HDPE and FRP, are challenged to provide a cost-effective, reliable solution.

Highly durable Corzan® piping solutions stand up to the immense challenges of chemical processing plants over the long-term better than any other piping material, metallic or non-metallic.

 

Corzan CPVC Piping

 

The Corzan® CPVC Advantage

Made of a specialty, high-performance, easy-to-install CPVC, Corzan pipe and fittings offer the necessary mechanical strength and corrosion resistance creating the following advantages for chemical processing operations:

  • Eliminate internal and external corrosion
  • Reduce installation time and promote safety
  • Lower life-cycle costs, maintenance and corrosion monitoring
  • Provide excellent hydraulic capabilities
  • Minimize total system costs with stable material prices

 

Corzan CPVC Valves and Fittings

 

Stands Up to the Most Aggressive Chemicals

As the first and only Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 CPVC piping system made from fully pressure-rated materials, Corzan pipe and fittings reliably handle aggressive chemicals such as: 

  • Sodium hypochlorite
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Phosphoric acid
  • Sodium chloride
  • Caustic soda
