CPVC Tee - Pipes and Fittings - Ajay Pipes



Tees are fittings that have structural analogy with the alphabet T and connect three pipes together. Tees have a function of either converging the flow of fluid by having two inlets and one outlet which are generally used in drainage systems. The other function of a Tee is to divide the flow of the fluid by having one inlet and two outlets which is case in water supply systems or plumbing systems.

CPVC is chlorinated polyvinyl chloride plastic which is a high quality, strong plastic that withstands temperature upto 93 Deg C. CPVC T have the following advantages over other thermoplastic tees :

  • Higher temperature tolerance of upto 93 degree celsius, CPVC Ts are compatible with both Hot/cold water lines.
  • CPVC tees are stronger than UPVC tees
  • CPVC tees are proven to be better suited for potable water supply lines.
  • CPVC tees have lower thermal expansion than PVC.
  • A CPVC Tee is more resistant to chemicals.
  • A CPVC Tee does not support combustion.

CPVC Tee are of two types:

CPVC TEE (Plain):
