SYGEF® Plus HP PVDF

sygef-hp-330x240

High Purity products are specialty products by definition. Procedures and protocols to manufacture and deliver such product must reflect these circumstances.

SYGEF® Plus provides the best solution for conveying Ultrapure Water (UPW) for manufacturers.

Ultimately, the overall UPW system integrity is assured from source to point of use by the complete integration of SYGEF® Plus PVDF products and associated jointing technologies.

Adhering strongly to accepted standards such as SEMI, SEMATECH, ISO and DIN, we control the entire process from the injection moulding of the fittings and valves, to the extrusion of  the pipe as well as the design and construction of the fusion equipment.

  4. All components of the pipe and fitting system shall conform to FDA CFR 21 177.1520 (certificate of conformance to be included with shop drawing submittal), USP 25 Class VI (certificate of conformance to be provided with shop drawing submittal) and ASME-BPE. All pipe and fittings shall be marked with brand name, product description, code number, material, and dimension and pressure rating information. Fittings shall be embossed with a permanent identification during the production process to ensure full traceability.

  5. Pipe and fittings shall be produced under ISO 14644-1 Class 7 (U.S. Fed. Standard 2.09 E Class 10’000) conditions. Subsequent assembly, quality inspection and cleaning is to be carried out using 18MΩ pure water under clean room ISO 14644-1 Class 5-6 (U.S. Fed. Standard 2.09E class 100-1000) conditions. Pipes will be capped and each component (pipe and fittings) will be double bagged in a specified inner bag and an outer bag under clean room ISO 14644-1 class 6 (U.S. Fed. Standard 2.09E Class 1000) conditions.

  6. Shall be SYGEF® Plus PVDF Piping Systems as manufactured by GF Piping Systems LLC, Irvine CA.

2.2 VALVES

  1. Diaphragm Valves: Diaphragm valves shall be constructed of polyvinylidene fluoride with EPDM or PTFE Seal configurations, manufactured for installation in SYGEF® Plus Piping system, Type 514, 515, 517 and 519 (Zero Static) as manufactured by GF Piping Systems LLC.

Installer shall use GF Piping Systems LLC isolation ball valves installed inline (tubing) or optional emergency shut-off clamps, to facilitate segregation of faucets from the pure water system if required for maintenance or other purposes. Only catalogued AquaTap adaptors, accessories and tools shall be used by the installer.

PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.1 HANDLING

  1. Material shall be stored in original packaging and protected from environmental damage until installation. Pipe shall be supported sufficiently to prevent sagging. Care shall be taken not to gouge or otherwise notch the pipe in excess of 10% of the wall thickness.

3.2 INSTALLATION

System components shall be installed using the [Socket, IR® (Infrared) Butt Fusion or Standard Butt Fusion] joining method according to current installation instructions as delivered in print or documented online at www.gfpiping.com. An on-site installation seminar shall be conducted by GF personnel who are certified to conduct said seminar. Seminar topics shall include all aspects of product installation (storage, set up, support spacing, fusion process, machine care, testing procedure, etc.). At the conclusion of the seminar, all installers will be given a written certification test and will be required to prepare and complete one fusion joint of the type being implemented on the project. Upon successful completion of said test, the installer will be issued a certification card verifying that they have met the requirements of the manufacturer with regards to knowledge of proper product installation and testing methods.

  2. Only the following GF Piping Systems LLC fusion units may be used to install the SYGEF® Standard piping system:

    For IR Fusion Installation
    – IR-63 Plus®, IR-110 Plus®, IR-225 Plus®, IR-315 Plus® Infrared Butt Fusion Machines

    For BCF® Fusion Installations – BCF® Plus

  3. Under this specification, the contractor shall be responsible for the purchase or rental of the proper machine required to meet the intent of the specification and be used for installation of the product on site.

  4. Installer shall ensure that all pipe and fittings used for Pure Water Piping are components of the same system. No mixing of various manufacturers pipe and or fittings shall be allowed.


3.3 TESTING

  1. The system shall be tested in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations. Please refer to Georg Fischer’s technical handbook for “Pressure Testing” guidelines.
