Schedule 80 CPVC Adapters
CPVC Schedule 80 pipes and fittings are one of the strongest, yet most affordable options out there. The thicker walls on the Schedule 80 CPVC products allows them to withstand high pressure applications, while the CPVC design makes them highly resistant to corrosion, either from high temperatures or corrosive chemicals. This is why they are often used in chemical processing, firefighting and water distribution. When two pipes of different sizes need to be connected, Schedule 80 CPVC adaptors are the right solution.
Our schedule 80 CPVC fittings meet ASTM D1784 Standards and are NSF-14 Certified.
These Schedule 80 CPVC adaptors feature both male and female ends to connect to most potential layouts. While somewhat simple in their design, these are nonetheless vital to many applications and they need to be durable enough to withstand the pressure that comes from reducing the flow from a large pipe to a small pipe. That is what makes the CPVC Schedule 80 adaptors so important in applications involving high pressure. The additional pressure of reducing the flow can lead to problems, but the strength of the Schedule 80’s thicker wall combined with the additional strength of the CPVC make these particular fittings a good choice for this application. The smooth interior surface provides a benefit over metal fittings, because the system does not lose pressure as a result of friction in the wall of the fitting. The end result of using a Schedule 80 CPVC adaptor is higher pressure at the end of the system.
Schedule 80 CVPC adaptors are dark gray in color. They range in size from ¼ inch to 4 inches, with both male and female ends available. These adaptors are commonly used in firefighting equipment, high-pressure water disruption and chemical handling, as well as any other application where high pressure is necessary or where the layout demands decreasing the diameter of the pipes. Adaptors can sometimes be referred to as reducing couplings, and while the two terms may be listed as separate items, they actually refer to the same type of fitting.
