Increase operational efficiency, minimize downtime and improve bottom-line performance
In the power generation industry, there are often few choices when it comes to specifying the product or material being used in plant processes. Selecting the correct piping solution directly increases operational efficiency, while minimizing downtime and improving bottom-line performance.
Highly durable Corzan® CPVC piping solutions stand up to the unique challenges of the power generation industry over the long-term better than any other piping material, metallic or non-metallic.
The Corzan® CPVC Advantage
Made of a specialty, high-performance CPVC, Corzan pipe, fittings and valves provide the mechanical strength and corrosion resistance necessary to:
- 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
In addition, Corzan piping is available in diameters up to 24-in. to satisfy any power plant requirements.
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 work underground and within elevated structures to reliably handle the aggressive chemicals commonly used in power generation plants, including:
- Caustic soda
- Sulfuric acid
- Sodium sulfite
- Ferrous chloride
- Ferric chloride
Corzan Industrial CPVC inherently provides superior long-term resistance to corrosive chemicals, seawater, demineralized water and high temperatures. In fact, Corzan pipe and fittings effectively stand up to most acids, bases and salts, and aliphatic hydrocarbons.

A Solution the Power Generation Industry Trusts
Corzan Industrial Solutions have nearly 60 years of success in a wide array of processing applications around the world.
Corzan Industrial Piping Systems offer a more reliable, cost-effective alternative to non-metallic piping materials, such as PVC, FRP, HDPE and polypropylene, and are able to operate continuously for years without interruptions due to leaks or repairs.
And, with lower installation and maintenance costs, Corzan pipe and fittings can pay for themselves in as little as a few months, depending on the size and nature of the operation.
Areas where Corzan Industrial Systems especially surpass other materials from a performance and cost standpoint include:
- Underground cooling water loops
- Cooling tower risers and headers
- Demineralized water for boiler feed systems
- Condensate return water applications
- Flue gas desulfurization systems
- Environmental systems (for coal-fired steam plants)
- Wastewater treatment facilities
The Reliable Solution
Corzan Industrial Systems provides an excellent balance of properties to improve reliability and user confidence while reducing capital and life-cycle costs, avoiding costly downtime and, most importantly, allowing power generation plants to stay operational–and more productive.
