PVC PIPES –
In today’s era PVC PIPES of different sizes are the best solution for your water distribution & drainage system as the cost and effectiveness of PVC PIPINGS are far better than any other system known. These pipes are available as ½, ¾, 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12 inch PVC PIPES and are completely safe, reliable and leak proof.
1 inch PVC Pipe: There are 2 types of 1” pipes available.
● Grey 1” PVC pipe: This is a pressure pipe complying with IS 4985 standard, the external diameter of this pipe is 32.0 – 32.3mm and is available in Pressure class 10 Kg/cm². Normally 1 inch pipe is used for plumbing application for cold water supply.
● White 1” PVC Pipe: This is a pressure pipe complying with ASTM D 1785 standard, the external diameter of this pipe is 33.40mm ±0.13 and is available in Sch 40 and Sch 80 in Iron Pipe size system. Normally 1 inch pipe is used for plumbing application for cold water supply.
2 inch PVC Pipe: There are 2 types of 2” pipes available.
● Grey 2” PVC pipe: This is a pressure pipe complying with IS 4985 standard, the external diameter of this pipe is 63.0 – 63.3mm and is available in Pressure class 4, 6 & 10Kg/cm². Normally 2 inch pipe is used for plumbing application for cold water supply.
● White 2” PVC Pipe: This is a pressure pipe complying with ASTM D 1785 standard, the external diameter of this pipe is 60.32mm ±0.15 and is available in Sch 40 and Sch 80 in Iron Pipe size system. Normally 2 inch pipe is used for plumbing application for cold water supply.
CROSS PIPE FITTING or 4 WAY FITTING:
Cross pipe fittings also known as 4 way fittings are plumbing accessories used to join three pipes to the main line. These fittings
All the connections of a cross or 4 way fitting meet at 90° angle forming a plus sign. They are crucial while forming the framework of a plumbing system and are generally used to divide the flow of the fluid flowing through them. These fittings can have either one inlet and three outlets usually in case of plumbing or three inlets and one outlet in case of drainage application.
Cross pipe fittings may connect four pipes of same size or of different sizes, both the variants are available in the market. These crosses have female threads at all the endings.
UPVC Cross Pipe fitting Standard: ASTM D 2467
Sizes and availability: ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1¼”, 1½” & 2”
CPVC Cross Pipe fitting Standard: ASTM D 2846
Sizes and availability: ½”, ¾”
SWR Cross Pipe fitting Standard: IS – 14735
Sizes and availability: RF/SF 75mm & 110mm
PVC TEE JOINT :
PVC Tee joints are the most commonly used fittings. These joints are used to connect three pipes for the purpose of either combining or dividing the flow of the fluid. T pipe connectors vary in sizes as they come for same sized pipes and different sized pipes, the more common being the same sized ones.
T joint pipes can also be used to carry two-mixing fluids.
T pipe connectors are available in ring socket and / or solvent weld socket depending on the pipe type to be connected.
Ajay also also manufactures Cross Tee sometimes known as 3 way PVC elbow.
PVC Reducer :
A PVC reducer is an accessory used to join two PVC pipes of different sizes, connecting a larger pipe with a smaller one. Joining two pipes with a reducer also requires solvent cement or rubber rings to make a leak free joint. PVC reducers are available in both eccentric and concentric types.
PVC Pipe Reducer :
PVC pipe reducers come in varying sizes depending on the diameters of both the pipes it requires to connect. The length of the reduction is roughly the average of diameters of both the pipes to be connected.
What is PVC Pipe :
PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride pipes are used for manufacturing water mains and sewage pipes. They are used for irrigation as well. PVC pipes have successfully replaced the metal piping and are durable, light weight, easy to install, flexible and are recyclable. This makes them the most cost-efficient and sustainable plastic water pipes.
PVC is made of polyvinyl chloride, a thermoplastic material that can be molded into different desired shapes. PVC pipes are non-toxic and are considered safe. PVC pipes are versatile and are used for water transportation, and drainage solutions.
Applications of PVC Pipes
PVC Pipes being highly versatile can be used for many different applications in both pressurised and non-pressure conditions. The primary application being:
● Water Supply
● Chemical Industry
