New CPVC Piping System Offers Alternate Solution for Corrosive Fluid Transport

GF Piping Systems has introduced the ChlorFIT Schedule 80 CORZAN CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) Piping Systemto handle highly aggressive chemicals. Because ChlorFIT reliably handles tough chemicals without corroding, minimal maintenance and replacement costs provide an improved, longlasting solution over other types of existing piping materials.

ChlorFIT pipe and fittings are extruded/molded from premium grade Chlorinate Polyvinyl Chloride Corzan compound. This compound creates a material that is highly resistant to nitric acid, sodium chloride, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, hydrochloric acid, and many other corrosive materials.  

The Corzan CPVC compound also has superior fire-resistant qualities and holds the ICC-ES PMG E84 25/50 plenum fire rating. Using high-quality raw materials and industrial-grade manufacturing, ChlorFIT features a thicker wall than some plastic piping, such as CTS SDR 11, making it more durable with higher pressure ratings. Because ChlorFIT is a lightweight material, handling is easy and requires minimal mechanical equipment at the job site, reducing installation costs.

Today, different thermoplastic piping systems can be specified for corrosive chemical transport. Unlike other thermoplastic materials, ChlorFIT can operate 100% of the time at temperatures from 32 F to 200 F (0 C – 93 C). The ChlorFIT system handles higher temperatures than most plastic piping systems and is much lighter and easier to handle than metal solutions.

Typical ChlorFIT applications include production facilities, blending operations, reagent processes, air scrubbing and wastewater treatment/demineralization operations in a variety of markets. Available in sizes ¼” to 24”, pipe joining is accomplished using solvent welding, threaded joints  and full pressure flanges.
