PVC UVR Fittings Schedule 40
Schedule 40 PVC UVR fittings from Irrigation Direct are available in a wide variety of configurations and are the most common PVC UVR fittings used in the irrigation industry. 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 and ASTM D2466 requirements. Manufactured from PVC Type 1, Grade 1.
Schedule 40 PVC UVR fittings (aka Sch 40) are UltraViolet Resistant, tan in color and are used in areas of direct sunlight. Schedule 40 PVC UVR fittings are available in two main connection options: Slip and Threaded.
Schedule 40 PVC UVR 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 PVC UVR pipe fittings are designed with pipe threads and are used to attach external items that also come with pipe threaded connections, such as irrigation valves, risers, ball valves and backflow preventors. Teflon tape is required when installing threaded PVC fittings.
PVC and Schedule 40 fittings are very versatile and can be used to distribute air or water at high and low pressures. PVC fittings are also easy to install and generally cheaper than alternative materials. PVC UVR fittings have a long lifespan and are highly resistant to corrosion and chemicals making them the preferred choice for sprinkler systems, drip irrigation systems, potable water, chilled water, irrigation, golf courses, and pools/spa applications.
