The pipes are rigid, supplied in either 5 or 6 metre lengths.
PVC is generally ideal for most agri. applications:
- it is quick and easy to install,
- low cost,
- does not corrode,
- carries liquids up 50c
- will cater for pressures up to 16bar (230PSI).
PVC can only be used for liquids (not compressed air) and should not be exposed to sunlight and sub-zero temperatures for long periods of time as this will affect its properties and performance – simply lagging will combat this.
PVC is also available in Ring-Seal (Push-fit) for both pressure and drainage.
ABS has very similar properties to PVC but is a higher specification in terms of duty.
Although it is still a solvent weld and threaded system, air and higher temperatures (up to 70c) can be conveyed safely. Again, lagging external pipework is recommended.
