Schedule 40 & Schedule 80 pipes

pipes fittings


Introduction to Schedule pipes or simply Sch pipes

The meaning of Schedule in the world of piping systems is a reference to how heavy or light duty the piping component is. Pipe Schedule details the thickness of the pipe or more specifically the wall thickness of pipe with respect to different internal pipe bore diameter. Under this system the pipe diameter remains same for a particular nominal diameter designation. For eg a 2” pipe will have the same outer diameter for Sch 20 or sch 40 or sch 80 or sch 120 systems however the thickness will keep increasing in the same order.


AICL Ball Valves & Conceled Valve


PVC Plumbing Valve:

Valves are mechanical fittings that are used to control the flow in the plumbing systems, sometimes also used to change the direction of the flow.
Valves are very crucial in plumbing systems where flow control is required like motor pump connections, aquariums, swimming pools, industries, etc.
They are also essential to stop the flow whenever maintenance work needs to be carried out.


pvc Elbow



The function of a plumbing elbow is to provide a bend in the network of pipes wherever required, just like the human body, where the elbow helps in bending of limbs. These are made up of PVC polymer hence are sometimes known simply as PVC elbows or PVC Bend. The elbows connect two pipes together at a certain angle depending on the specification of the elbow.
Both 90 degree and 45 degree elbows are widely used in plumbing systems of all kinds.
There are different types of elbows in the market, some are mentioned as follows :

PVC Elbow 90 Degree
The most common type of PVC elbows are 90 degree elbows. These elbows, when connected two pipes, form an angle of 90 degrees. A PVC Bend is one of the most commonly used fitting and is used in all kinds of plumbing systems.
Elbows are also available in reducing type also known as PVC reducing elbows which connect a pipe of higher size with one of smaller size.
Other kinds of 90 degree elbows are long radius and short radius elbows used for large and smaller diameter pipes respectively.

PVC Elbow 45 Degree
Another type of PVC bends are 45 degree elbow. These elbows connect two pipes at an angle of 45 degrees. These elbows cause much lower turbulence and friction in the flow as compared to the 90 degree elbows.

Why Choose UPVC Plumbing Pipes Over Metal Pipes

upvc pipe fittings

When it comes to planning plumbing projects, the choice of piping solution plays an important role. You need to evaluate the various types of pipes. Earlier, metal pipes such as galvanised iron pipes and steel pipes were used. But as they are prone to corrosion, scaling and lead poisoning, they fell out of favour. Over the last few decades, UPVC pipes have emerged as a cost-effective and durable choice for many plumbing projects. Reliability, easy installation and corrosion resistance are some of the many advantages that UPVC pipes offer over metal pipes:

Over here we discuss features that make UPVC plumbing pipes a better choice than metal pipes:

1. UPVC pipes are resistant to corrosion: One of the major drawbacks of using metal pipes is that they deteriorate due to corrosion, which not only leads to leaks but also compromise the quality of water. Unlike metal piping systems, UPVC pipes do not corrode or rust over time as the compound does not react with air and water the way metal does. This results in the safe transportation of potable and significantly longer life of the pipe.

2. UPVC pipes are resistant to bacterial growth: Biological contamination presents a serious concern for many plumbing applications. They contaminate water, making them unfit for use. Our UPVC plumbing pipes and fittings are resistant to bacterial growth.

3. UPVC pipes are strong and durable: UPVC pipes have high tensile and impact strength which make them a long-lasting plumbing solution. Unlike metal pipes, they are flexible which makes them even ideal for tight areas.

4. Metal pipes are prone to leakage: As metal pipes corrode easily, they rust and break down, leading to leaks. Whereas UPVC pipes do not corrode, keeping chances of leakage to the minimum. Our UPVC pipes do not rust even in hard water. Joint fittings are attached and sealed with solvent cement, ensuring no leakage.

5. Metal pipes are toxic: Lead poisoning is one of the many safety concerns that make metal pipes the wrong choice of transporting drinking water. Lead not only causes health problems among people but results in extensive environmental contamination. Our UPVC pipes are made from environment-friendly, lead-free and non-toxic compound. This makes it safe for potable water distribution.

6. UPVC pipes are cost-effective in the long run: UPVC pipes are lightweight and are easier to work with. They are not as heavy as metal pipes and, thus, not as arduous to work with. They can be easily cut. The installation requires simple tools that are not very expensive. As UPVC pipes do not corrode, they do not require frequent maintenance. The overall labour costs and maintenance costs are low in comparison to metal pipes. They outlast metal pipes and thus are cost-effective alternatives. Our UPVC pipes are designed to last for over 50 years.

We offer a wide range of UPVC plumbing solutions that are ideal for cold water plumbing applications. Made from high-quality UPVC compound, our UPVC pipes are protected against corrosion and chemical deterioration. We also provide training and services for single-family homes, large residential buildings and commercial buildings.


Top features about UPVC Pipes that you should know about

Clean and safe drinking water is essential for all types of property, be it residential or commercial. There was a time when water was transported using metal pipes. Susceptible to corrosion and oxidation, metal pipes did not make the ideal choice. UPVC plumbing pipes have revolutionised the plumbing industry as they are leak-proof, cost-effective and durable. At Ajay Greenline, our UPVC pipes are manufactured from a non-toxic plastic compound. Our pipes are widely used in buildings for the distribution of potable water.

Here are some top features of our UPVC pipes that you should know about:

1. Lead-free and non-toxic: Prolonged exposure to lead can be dangerous for health. It is for this reason that our UPVC pipes are made from a non-toxic plastic compound that does not contain lead. Our lead-free pipes are safe and suitable for transporting drinking water as they do not allow any kind of bacterial growth. They are also resistant to a wide range of chemicals keeping the plumbing system protected against rusting and chemical deterioration.

2. High strength and UV resistant: Thanks to the high tensile strength of our UPVC pipes, they are more durable than conventional plastic and metal pipes. When exposed to sunlight, normal UPVC pipes degrade. Our ultraviolet resistant UPVC pipes are designed to withstand high pressure for long periods and UV degradation. They can serve you for over 50 years.

3. Self-extinguishing: UPVC pipes are very difficult to ignite. When they do catch fire, they have a limited spread of flame, making them safe to use. When the source of ignition is removed, the UPVC pipes do not support combustion — this means they do not continue to burn.

4. Fast and easy to install: The lightweight of our UPVC pipes make them cheaper to handle and transport, reducing labour costs during installation. UPVC pipes do not leak or break easily and thus the operational costs of UPVC pipes are also lower.

5. Corrosion-resistant: One of the many advantages of UPVC pipes that make them ideal for transporting potable water is that they are corrosion resistant. The non-toxic nature of UPVC pipes ensures that the quality of water does not deteriorate. Our high-quality UPVC pipes do not rust and react with chemicals. The smooth interior surface ensures there is no build-up and scaling even when transporting hard water. This also reduces the chances of fluid friction.

6. Cost-effective: When you consider longevity, UPVC column pipes are a clear choice above conventional metal pipes. Our UPVC column pipes are light in weight, making them convenient and cheaper to transport.

At Ajay Greenline, we offer a wide and complete range of UPVC pipes, fittings and valves. All the UPVC plumbing pipes and UPVC fittings are resistant to bacterial growth. The non-toxic and abrasion-proof UPVC pipes are designed to supply cold water through them with efficacy.
