IPEX offers a comprehensive range of integrated lightweight process piping systems designed to meet the temperature, pressure and size requirements of chemical processing and similar industrial applications. Among its offerings is a new high pressure clear PVC pipe — the IPEX Clear-Guard.
The cost-effective, multipurpose solution has a long list of benefits. Clear-Guard is lightweight, flexible, durable and corrosion resistant. Plus, it has the additional benefit of clarity.
“Our clarity provides 360-degree visibility for several applications, including dual-containment, clean room and site glass applications,” the company explains.
The high pressure clear PVC pipe allows users to specify Schedule 40 clear pipe for applications where previously only Schedule 80 clear pipe would suffice. Clear-Guard’s high pressure formulation, with a long-term hydrostatic design basis of 3,150 psi, allows for better clarity and more versatility for various applications, the company says.
IPEX Clear-Guard is available in sizes ranging from ½-inch to eight-inch Schedule 40 pipe, as well as standard 10-foot lengths (though 20-foot lengths are available by special order). Certified to NSF-61, the pipe is produced from a rigid, virgin Polyvinyl Chloride compound, which enables it to operate in temperatures up to 140 degrees F. Its long list of ideal applications includes: Clear-Guard dual-containment systems; dual-containment for high-purity tubing; leak detection systems; agricultural and aquacultural applications; chemical processing; health care; laboratory applications; food and beverage processing; and much more.
