SUITABILITY OF CPVC PIPING SYSTEMS VERSUS METAL

On Spec: Your Resource on the Suitability of Corzan® CPVC Piping Systems

Industrial facilities are challenging environments for piping systems. Traditional metallic materials have long been recommended for meeting the heavy demands made on industrial piping, but for the plant professional who must live with this material choice, there are heavy costs that may not have been envisioned at the outset - costs that require devoting significant resources to addressing them and can compromise the design life of the system you've recommended.
