Materials

  • PVC

    Engineers commonly use PVC for thermoplastic Piping Design and detailing and tanks. It has seen its successful usage for over 45 years in various fields like chemical processing, industrial plating, chemical drainage, fresh and wastewater treatment, chilled and tower cooling water, deionized water manufacture, and distribution, and irrigation sprinkler systems. PVC has the power to resist high chemical attacks by strong acids and oxidizers, and a variety of chemicals. However, non-ionic surfactants may attack your PVC thermoplastic tanks, ducting fabrication, and installation.

    It has design stress of 2000 psi at 73° F. The hydrostatic strength of PVC is as high as any other thermostatic material. We join PVC pipes using solvent cementing, threading, or flanging. We have already mentioned that PVC cannot resist attack from every chemical. It is why it is necessary for you to convey your requirements to us, and we can provide case to case basis piping design, supply, and installations for a safe and better output.

  • CPVC

    CPVC is basically a resin that forms by the post-chlorination of a PVC polymer. It has almost the same power to resist chemical attacks as PVC. The physical properties of PVC are also similar to PVC at 73° F, but the extra chlorine extends its tolerance to high temperatures - 140° F to 210° F. Its strength reduces to 500 psi at 180° F compared to PVC - 440 psi at 140° F. 

    CPVC thermoplastic tanks, ducting fabrication, and installation are good choices for storing hot corrosive liquids, and CPVC thermoplastic pipes can help distribute hot and cold water. Why is it better than PVC? It has a higher temperature tolerance than PVC, thus making it an ideal choice for industries dealing with extreme temperatures. You can even choose CPVC over PVC for the 110° F to 140° F temperature range because it offers higher strength at higher temperatures, requires less piping supports, and the installation cost is more affordable than PVC. We join CPVC pips using solvent cementing, threading, or flanging.

  • PVDF

    Do you need a thermoplastic piping design and detailing that is strong, and can resist abrasion? PVDF is a material with design stress of 1,360 psi at 73° F and can tolerate a maximum temperature of 280° F. It offers chemical resistance to different substances like salts, strong acids, dilute bases, and many organic solvents, such as aromatics, aliphatics, and chlorinated groups. PVDF is perfect for dealing with dry or wet chlorine, bromine, and other halogens. However, PVDF  thermoplastic tanks, ducting fabrication, and installation are not resistant to strong bases, hypochlorites, and organic chemicals like polar solvents. 


    On the brighter side, no other type of thermoplastic piping design and detailing offers combined characteristics of strength, working temperature, and chemical resistance like PVDF. We provide case to case basis piping design, supply, and installations that will suit your needs. The joining methods of PVDF pipes include thermo-sealing socket fusion process, threading, or flanging. Remember that the fluid in PVDF pipelines may receive UV radiation. However, worry not because we even have a solution for this. We add an FDA-approved red pigmentation to all PVDF thermoplastic piping design and detailing to protect your fluid from UV radiation, especially if you have outdoor piping networks.

  • PP

    PP thermoplastic tanks, ducting fabrication, and installation are indeed half as strong as PVC and CPVC pipelines and tanks, it offers chemical resistance to most chemical substances. It has a design stress of 1,000 psi at 73° F. Chcmeicl industries use PP thermoplastic piping design and detailing for draining their chemical waste. It also does not have to compete with any concentrated acetic acid or hydroxides in case of pressure. 

    You can use PP thermoplastic piping design and detailing and tanks for milder solutions of most acids, alkalis, salts, and many organic chemicals, including solvents, strong oxidizers, such as hypochlorites, and higher concentrations of sulfuric, nitric, and hydrofluoric acids are strong enemies of PP. So, you should never use PP tanks and pipelines if you deal with these substances. We also do not recommend using PP with some organic chemicals, like polar and chlorinated solvents and aromatics. Our case to case basis piping design, supply, and installations services cater to each of your needs. 

    We know that all polyolefins can absorb UV radiation and damage the substances inside. However, experts say that PP contains more than two and a half percent carbon black pigmentation that helps fight harmful UV radiation.

  • FKM

    FKM is another material that is suitable for many chemical compounds. It has high chemical compatibility, wide ranges of concentration and temperature. Hence, engineers use FKM to construct valve “O”-rings and seats. You can sue FKM thermoplastic tanks, ducting fabrication, and installation for applications involving mineral acids, salt solutions, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and petroleum oils. Do not use this material with alkali solutions.

  • EPDM

    EPDM thermoplastic piping design and detailing offer good resistance to abrasion and tear and is chemically resistant to salt, acidic, and organic chemical solutions. It is the perfect choice for alkali solutions and hydrochloric acid but is the wrong choice for petroleum oils or most strong acids.

  • PTFE

    PTFE is one of the best materials that offers chemical resistance to most chemicals and solvents. It can withstand a temperature range of -200° F to +500° F.

  • CR

    The first commercial synthetic rubber was CR. It offers resistance to oil and chemical. We strongly recommend using CR thermoplastic tanks, ducting fabrication, and installation alkalis but not for most organic solvents or any acid solutions except dilutes.

The engineers at Delta Flow follow the various standard given by commercial, industrial, and governmental sectors to design the perfect thermoplastic piping design and detailing. We refer to the specifications set by ASTM Standards. These standards also help us to provide a case to case basis piping design, supply, and installations and modify certain parts. Below you will find a list of standards that engineers mostly use for industrial thermoplastic piping design and detailing.

  • ASTM Standard D 1784

    These standards are the perfect choice for designing PVC and CPVC pipes, valves, and fittings. It helps us to select and identify compounds based on different physical and chemical criteria. You can meet specific physical and chemical properties to fit into this standard.
