PRODUCT DETAILS

Available in 1/2" to 6" Iron Pipe Size (IPS) diameters.

 

Material

Xirtec® CPVC pipe, fittings and valves are manufactured with Corzan® CPVC Compound (Cell Classification 24448 and 23447) conforming to ASTM D1784, and are grey in color. These quality CPVC compounds are renowned for chemical resistance, durability and elevated temperature and pressure ratings. They feature outstanding resistance to photodegradation, creep stress and immunity to oxidation. Corzan CPVC compounds provide extended service and low maintenance versus common and strong resistance. They are not immune metals traditionally used in plumbing systems.

 

 Fully-Certified System

Designed to be safely used in potable water distribution systems, Xirtec CPVC is certified to the following standards: 

  • NSF 61 (Potable Water Classification)
  • ASTM F441
  • ASTM F437
  • ASTM F439
  • ASTM F1970
  • CAN/ULC S102.2

Pipe

Xirtec CPVC pipe is manufactured to Iron Pipe Size Outside Diameter (IPS OD) dimensions. Pipe is made in 10 ft. and 20 ft. lengths and are available in nominal sizes 1/2” – 6”.

 

Fittings 

The Xirtec CPVC system offers a wide variety of fittings including Tees, Reducer Tees, Elbows, Couplings, Reducer Bushings, and Flanges. 

 

Valves

Xirtec CPVC True Union Ball Valves (VXE Model) are available in sizes 1/2” through 4”. True union connections allow for easy valve removal and replacement without having to cut the pipe. This valve uses specially selected EPDM O-ring seals for performance in potable water where a variety of treatment chemicals may be used.

One-Piece Ball Valves are available in sizes 1/2” - 1”. The one-piece valves can withstand 400 psi at 73ºF. These valves feature a spin-welded design, making the valves light and compact. They are the smarter valve option for applications that do not require a serviceable connection.
