Plastic valve pipe fittings are generally utilized for open vent systems in which the temperature range is very large during the combustion process. This is because the smoke and other gases are accumulated at the ends of the flue pipes. These pipes are generally constructed from materials like copper, brass, bronze or steel. The thickness of the pipe material would depend upon the extent of internal diameter.
Material composition of CPVC plastic valve pipe fittings: PVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) as a hard wearing, heat resistant, chemical resistance and anti-corrosion resistant material, has excellent heat conduction, anti-corrosion and anti-ultraviolet performance. The PVC material is capable of withstanding pressures up to 500 pounds per square inch. It is also capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and stresses without getting distorted or broken. The PVC material is available in different colors and finishes. The smooth finishing and color-fast approach of the PVC to make it easy to install and to maintain.
