Clear PVC Piping

Clear rigid PVC piping provides a versatile, cost-effective alternative for many piping applications, particularly those where visual monitoring of processes is important. The benefits of rigid PVC piping are well recognized: exceptional corrosion resistance; smooth interior walls for unimpeded flow and reduced sediment buildup; non-contaminating for purity applications; fast, reliable solvent-welded connections; good pressure-bearing capability; and ease of handling and installation, to name a few. Clear PVC is routinely used as dual-containment piping for high purity piping runs where quick identification of primary tubing and visual leak detection is critical. Other applications include chemical processing, electroplating, medical/hospital use, laboratory applications, beverage processing and cosmetics.
