PVC pressure pipes are suitable for a wide range of pressure applications, including water supply, recycled water, irrigation, pressure sewerage, gas and industrial applications.
PVC pressure pipes are available in two diameter groups, Series 1 and Series 2, which denote the outside diameter of each group. Series 1 pipes have internationally compatible (ISO) outside diameters (mostly metric) whereas Series 2 pipes have ductile iron compatible outside diameters. Pipes are designated by their nominal size (DN) and their nominal working pressure (PN).
Pipes can be supplied in different colours for different intended applications. Series 1 pipes for drinking water are white, Series 2 pipes for drinking water are blue, pipes for recycled water are purple and pipes for pressure sewer applications are cream in colour. Gas pipes are yellow.
PVC pressure pipes are supplied in straight lengths with spigot and socket ends for ether Solvent Cement Jointing (SCJ) or Rubber Ring Jointing (RRJ).
