Schedule 80 Clear PVC

clear-pvc-330x240

GF Harvel Clear pipe and fittings are manufactured in IPS sizes to Schedule 80 dimensions for optimum performance. This provides sufficient wall thickness for most pressure applications without jeopardizing clarity. As a rigid PVC piping, GF Harvel Clear PVC maintains its integrity in harsh environments. It is suitable for use in both positive and negative pressure applications (i.e., vacuum service).

As with all schedules of thermoplastic pipe, pressure rating is dependent on the pipe diameter selected as well as the operating temperature of the system. As temperatures rise, the pressure rating of the system decreases. Smaller diameter piping can withstand higher pressures than large diameter piping at elevated temperatures. Refer to the table below for dimensions, tolerances and pressure ratings.

GF Harvel Clear Schedule 80 PVC provides a versatile, cost-effective alternative for many piping applications, particularly those where visual monitoring of processes is critical.

Specification

Schedule 80

  1. All PVC Schedule 80 CLEAR pipe and fittings shall be manufactured from a Type I, Grade I Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) compound with a Cell Classification of 12454 per ASTM D1784. The pipe shall be manufactured in strict compliance to ASTM D1785, consistently meeting and/or exceeding the applicable Quality Assurance test requirements of this standard with regard to material, workmanship, burst pressure, flattening, and extrusion quality. The pipe shall be manufactured in the USA by an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer. All PVC Schedule 80 CLEAR pipe shall be packaged immediately after its manufacture to prevent damage, and shall be stored indoors at the manufacturing site until shipped from factory. All pipe shall be manufactured by GF Harvel.
