These piping components withstand harsh chemicals

GF Piping System

The ChlorFIT piping system (photo), made from Schedule 80 chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), is designed to provide a long-lasting, cost-effective alternative to copper and stainless-steel piping for applications that require transport of corrosive fluids. This helps to reduce maintenance and replacement costs, compared to traditional installations, says the company. The pipes and fittings are extruded or molded from premium-grade CPVC compound, which has proven resistance to nitric acid, sodium chloride, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid and hydrochloric acid, as well as many other corrosive fluids. This material also has superior fire-resistant qualities, and holds the ICC-ES PMG E84 25/50 plenum fire rating. Unlike many other thermoplastic piping options, ChlorFIT can operate at temperatures from 32–200°F (higher than many other plastic piping systems), and is more lightweight and easier to handle than metal piping solutions. Pipes are available in sizes from 0.25 to 24 in. dia., and joining is accomplished with solvent welding, threaded joints and full-pressure flanges. — GF Piping Systems, Irvine, Calif.
