The Schedule 40 CPVC piping system is extruded from a special blend of CPVC compound with unique physical properties suitable for piping applications, such as improved impact results and excellent fire resistance capabilities. GF Harvel CPVC Schedule 40 piping can handle a variety of applications, temperatures and pressure requirements.
Schedule 40 CPVC pipes are highly resistant to hot acids, alkalis, alcohols and many other corrosive materials, making them ideal for a wide variety of low-pressure or drainage applications.
Schedule 40 CPVC systems provide the same inherent corrosion and temperature resistance as Schedule 80 CPVC, but offer material saving for use in lower pressure piping applications.
CPVC Schedule 40 pressure pipe has an upper working temperature limit of 200°F (93°C) and has longer support spacing than PVC Schedule 40 pipes.
Schedule 40 CPVC systems can be found in water and wastewater treatment, hot chemical drainage and plating applications, amongst others.
