Top 10 applications of PVC pipes-2
4. PVC Pipes for Agriculture
Agriculture is one of the largest and important sectors and is incomplete without PVC pipes. PVC pipes are used for all important functions of agriculture from bore-well to water irrigation, sprinklers and spraying of pesticides and fertilizers. PVC agricultural pipes are used for irrigation and pest control activities at farms. PVC pipes are resistant to all sorts of chemicals, corrosion, soil and fire. This makes them the best fit to be used for the transportation of pesticides and fertilizers into a farm. PVC agricultural pipes are very, do not require any maintenance and in optimum conditions last for more than 50 years.
5. PVC Pipe for Fire Sprinklers
The PVC pipes have been approved to be used in the case of a light-hazard and multipurpose sprinkler system. PVC pipes are commonly used in the fire sprinkler system set up in public places like museums, theatres, libraries as well as in hotels, offices, and private buildings. The PVC pipes are immune to corrosion, scale, or any microbiological layer formation that leads to them being durable, low in maintenance as opposed to the traditional iron pipes. The PVC pipes used in the fire sprinkler system are not combustible and do not contribute to flashover. PVC pipes are light in weight, can be easily assembled in a small space, and offer non-corrosive properties.
6. PVC Pipes for Industrial Use
PVC pipes have proven to be beneficial for use in the industrial sector. PVC piping can handle a wide range of substances, from cold water to the transport of hazardous chemicals. The property of high resistance to corrosion of the PVC pipes makes them extremely useful in industrial settings. The piping system for industrial use is required to be robust to endure the rough environment to carry chemicals or harmful waste. Thus, the PVC pipes meet this requirement and provide safe transportation for most of the substances in the industry.
7. PVC Pipe for Chemical Handling
The product used for handling chemicals and industrial substances varies depending on the type of chemical, its compatibility with the chemical, and its tolerance. The PVC pipes are efficient in handling particular types of chemicals, as opposed to metal pipes. The long polymeric chains of PVC offers a high material resistance against degradation, chemical attack, and corrosion. The chlorine content in PVC makes it fire resistant and does not allow the flames to spread. Therefore, PVC pipe and plumbing are frequently applied for use in handling chemicals as well as their transfer, production, delivery, and processes. The PVC pipes can be used to transport chemicals like alcohols, organic acids, anhydride acids, hydrocarbons, halogens, oxidising acids, salts, inorganic acids, alkalis, and ammonia.
