Linear expansion and contraction is a thermal property of all materials, including both metallics and thermoplastics. If left unaccounted for during the design process, this expansion can cause compression stress on pipes and fittings, resulting in damage to industrial piping systems.
With the Corzan® CPVC Pipe Expansion Calculator, account for Corzan CPVC's linear expansion and design around compression stress concerns.
How The Calculator Works
Enter in your pipe diameter, maximum and minimum temperatures, and pipe run length.
The calculator will then reveal the linear expansion of the pipe, along with the necessary dimensions of expansion loops, offsets and changes of direction.
For reference, dimensions are delivered alongside the above diagrams.
