Chlorblue® – CC2 PE Pressure Pipe for Drinking Water – Blue

Chlorblue® – CC2 PE Pressure Pipe for Drinking Water – Blue Products

Why Use Chlorblue®?

 

Due to elevated soil (and water) temperatures PIPA POP018 indicates that a reduced service life is more likely to occur where the soil/water  temperatures fall into the red, orange and yellow zones plus the areas around Townsville on the map.

For the same range of water conditions, Vinidex Chlorblue® can be used in a much larger range of temperatures zones without needing to increase pipe size or pressure classification compared to traditional PE material.

As a result, Vinidex Chlorblue® is the ideal solution for the large range of water temperature and chlorine levels encountered across Australia.

Recognising the increased risk in the above zones Vinidex has introduced Chlorblue® with a higher chlorine resistance classification (CC2).

  • Chlorblue is suitable for a much wider combination of operating temperatures and chlorine disinfectant levels and can be used for most water chemistries in the majority of temperature zones
  • Chlorblue is the preferred choice for use in applications where the fluid being transported has an elevated level of chlorine and temperature
  • For water service applications where chlorine disinfectant is not used, Vinidex offers Black PE100. Normal de-rating guidelines for elevated temperature should be followed.Plastics Industry Pipe Association (PIPA) POP18 “Polyethylene Drinking Water Pipes in Contact with Chlorine and Chloramine Disinfectants” outlines the Chlorine Classification (CC) Index set out in the US ASTM Standard D3350:2014 “Standard Specification for Polyethylene Plastics Pipe and Fittings Materials”.
    Higher classification materials will withstand higher levels of chlorine, temperature and pressure over time.

Standards for Polyethylene Pipe
AS/NZS 4130 Polyethylene (PE) pipes for pressure applications.

Contact with drinking water

Vinidex PE pipes comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 4020 – Testing of products for use in contact with drinking water. This Standard specifies a series of type tests, which are carried out in order to demonstrate that the product does not have a detrimental effect on the quality of drinking water. It assesses the effect of the pipe on the taste, odour and appearance of water as well as the health aspects due to growth of microorganisms and leaching of toxic substances.
