Sch 80 PVC Wye's

Schedule 80 PVC wyes are used in applications where two chemicals need to be mixed into one line. These fittings, which bring two lines together into one, are commonly used in chemical mixing situations, such as what are found in factories and chemical processing plants.

In addition to mixing two lines, Schedule 80 PVC wyes can also be used to split the flow into two separate branches. This situation is common in industrial and factory settings where a main line needs to be split to reach different areas of a factory or lab. Irrigation is another situation where this can be necessary, as it is common to have one main water line that needs to be split into several different parts of a field or yard.

The function provided by these wyes is similar to the function of a tee fitting. The main difference is the angle at which the line splits. With the 45-degree angel used with the wye, the line can be split with less friction. Thus, the two lines created have similar pressures to the original line, with no interruption of flow. In situations like wastewater systems, an interruption of flow can be quite problematic, and wyes help prevent this.

Wyes are made from one seamless piece of Schedule 80 PVC and are not welded, as is common with metal fittings. This means there are no rough edges to increase friction inside the pipe. The thicker Schedule 80 PVC wall creates a stronger fitting, making these ideal for applications that use high pressures. Some wyes have the same diameter for all three openings, ranging in size from 1-½ inches to 8 inches. Others have a different, smaller opening on the arm. These varied Schedule 80 PVC wyes range in size from 2 inches by 1-½ inches to 8 inches by 6 inches.

In addition, the strong PVC material can withstand erosion from bases, acids and other solvents. This, combined with the smooth interior, makes these fittings popular for chemical mixing plants. They can withstand around 120 degrees Fahrenheit of temperature. This durability and the affordability of these fittings make them a popular choice for a range of fluid applications.
