Xirtec 140 Sch80 PVC Systems

Features & Benefits

  • Lower installation costs & easy handling

    In addition to a lower material cost, Xirtec pipe can significantly reduce labor and transportation costs on a typical installation. The reason? They are lightweight, easily handled, stored, cut and joined. Furthermore, heavy equipment used to install metallic and other piping systems are not required, thereby reducing project costs.

  • Extended life

    Xirtec PVC is fundamentally ageless and impervious to normal weather conditions. They will not rust, pit, scale or corrode on either interior or exterior surfaces. Unlike other types of piping, Xirtec systems are not adversely affected by environmental conditions.

  • Superior underground performance

    Xirtec is immune to damage from naturally corrosive soil conditions as well as electrochemical and galvanic corrosion. This is particularly advantageous in underground installations where galvanic reaction often causes damage to metal piping products. Non-corroding properties ensure improved flow, lower
    maintenance costs and longer performance life.

  • Exceptional chemical resistance

    IPEX pipe systems, including pipe, valves and fittings, provide outstanding resistance to a wide range of chemicals such as most acids, alcohols, alkalies, salt solutions, halogens and more.

  • Improved flow

    Xirtec has a substantially lower Roughness Factor than metal and other materials, and since they do not rust, pit, scale or corrode, the interior walls remain smooth in virtually any service. This high carrying capacity may permit the use of flatter grades or smaller diameter pipe.

  • Lower thermal conductivity

    With a low thermal conductivity factor, IPEX vinyl systems have less heat loss or gain, thus sustaining service temperature more efficiently than metal piping. As a result, pipe insulation is often not required.
