PVC-O pipes ISO 16422 NF T 54-948 for high-pressure water
PVC-Oriented pipes are the most advanced solution for the conveyance of high-pressure water currently available on the market, with a number of exceptional features for this kind of application, thanks to the process of molecular orientation. The result is a layered plastic structure with clearly visible layers.
The strong points
PVC-O pipes characteristics give to SupertuBO the specific application in the field of pressure fluid transport (low-medium). In this field of application, SupertuBO gives its best guarantees regarding:
Flexibility and impact resistance
The high elasticity module of SupertuBO allows the pipe to be deformed up to 100% of its size, without structural damages and quality falling-off. If the pipeline undergoes a deformation, it will return to its primarily shape as soon as the cause of the deformation has been removed. This characteristic offers higher security levels than traditional PVC-U pipes in case of not expected stresses.
These pipes are lighter than other solutions ( cast iron, PEAD, PVC-U), in fact small diameters could be handled without the help of machines.
Thanks to the good mechanical features it’s possible to have a huge reduction of wall thicknesses during the production of normalized pressure rates. Therefore, the hydraulic section increases until 30% more than others resin pipes at the same pressure. Thanks to its high flexibility, PVC-O pipes reduce the quickness of the perturbation’s propagation known as over pressure.
