Clear PVC Fittings Schedule 40
Schedule 40 Clear PVC fittings from Irrigation Direct are available in a wide variety of configurations and are made of a transparent (blue tint) PVC that provides visual control in a wide variety of applications, particularly where visual monitoring of the process is important. FDA approved, Schedule 40 Clear PVC fittings are ideal in food and pharmaceutical plants, laboratories, hospitals, chemical installations and aquariums.
The term “Schedule 40” refers to the strength and thickness of the PVC pipe or PVC fitting and how much pressure it can hold. It’s designed to handle water pressures of 120 psi and water temperatures up to 140 degrees. Meets NSF, ASTM D1784 and NS14-14 requirements.
Schedule 40 Clear PVC fittings, (aka Sch 40), are general clear in color with a slight blueish tint and come available in two main connection options: Slip and Threaded.
Schedule 40 Clear PVC slip fittings are solvent welded to PVC pipe using PVC cement. PVC cement is designed to melt plastic, creating a weld between PVC pipe and a PVC fitting.
Schedule 40 Clear PVC pipe fittings are designed with pipe threads and are used to attach external items that also come with pipe threaded connections, such as threaded risers and ball valves. Teflon tape is required when installing threaded PVC fittings.
