Diaphragm valve, CPVC socket and threaded ends (Real Union style makes use of end connector o-ring seals); EPDM seals and diaphragm, size: 1-1/2-inch. The primary mechanical difference between CPVC and PVC is that CPVC is substantially more ductile, permitting higher flexure and crush resistance. CPVC is less apt to be worn away than PVC and also, under certain conditions, lots of kinds of metal pipeline. Compared with Schedule 40, Schedule 80 pipes and fittings are thicker, hence they are much better used to jobs that need higher in-pipe pressure or higher water temperature. Backed by over 40 years of both product and process development experience, Spears has actually become one of the leading manufacturers of thermoplastic valves, fittings, and piping system elements. Spears broad product line provides a full selection of 1/8-inch through 12-inch injection formed fittings and made fittings through 48-inch, lots of specialty items, and a complete enhance of handbook and mechanically actuated thermoplastic valves in a range of types, sizes, and setups.
CPVC diaphragm valve, socket and threaded ends; True Union uses end connector o-ring seals; EPDM seals and diaphragm
Schedule 80 CPVCs: not for Compressed Air or Gas; do not use compressed air or gas even to test, or clear, any PVC or CPVC piping system
CPVC piping is suitable for hot water distribution as high as 180 Fahrenheit; PVC piping is ideal for use with temperatures up to 140 Fahrenheit
Sch 80 and Sch 40 have different inside/outside diameters for each unit size; the same is true with CPVC versus PVC; adapters allow interconnectivity
