The durability of PVC fitting
PVC fitting may be in operation without chemical and mechanical changes during the last 50 years or more. Results of 30-year test of continuous operation of piping systems show that the period of reliable operation of systems can exceed 100 years.
Lightweight PVC fitting
There is no need to use heavy tubingline equipment, heavy vehicles. Another advantage of simplicity and safety of installation, since no open flame is used: PVC fitting fabrication is performed mechanically using a lever, the connection socket with O-ring or glue joints. Casing – threaded connection.
Economical PVC fitting
With prolonged use the internal cross section of PEX tubing is not reduced due to encrustation deposits (as the use of steel fitting), the effects of which are known to specialists. Due to the low roughness of the inner surface of PVC fitting friction between the flowing fluid and the walls slightly, which gives them an advantage over metal tubing.
The economic feasibility of the use of PVC fitting is clearly seen as on installation and during operation. In comparison with other materials, PVC fitting save costs thanks to the following features:
* Light weight tubing reduces transportation costs and eliminates the need for a powerful lifting equipment.
* Easy fitting and connections require small investment in time, saves labor and electricity.
Environmentally friendly PVC fitting
PVC does not affect the organic properties of water (no foreign smell, taste, sediment), does not emit any organic substances, consistent with the requirements for food and consumer items.
