Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications! Maximum operating and bursting pressures of CPVC - Chlorinated Poly (Vinyl Chloride) - piping systems.
Maximum operating and collapsing pressures at
70 for CPVC piping systems according oF (21 oC) ASTM F441 / F441M - 02 Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Plastic Pipe, Schedules 40 and 80 ASTM D2846 / D2846M - 06 Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Plastic Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution Systems
are indicated in the diagram and table below:
1 psi (lb/in 2) = 6,894.8 Pa (N/m 2)
Note! The maximum operating pressures derates with temperature. At the maximum operating temperature for CPVC - 200 - the strength is derated to approximately 20% of the strength at oF (93 oC) 73. oF (23 oC)
Be aware that maximum operating pressures varies with the fittings design. Consult manufacturing data.
