PVC

ASTM D1785 "Standard Specification for Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Plastic Pipe, Schedules 40, 80, and 120" is manufactured to meet the needs of a broad range of industrial, commercial and residential piping systems. ASTM D1785 covers pipes made for water distribution and irrigation systems.

Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) pipes are usable for water distribution at elevated temperatures.

    Insert PVC and CPVC pipes in Sketchup 3D models with the Engineering ToolBox Plugin!

Note!

    ASTM D2665 covers PVC drain, waste and vent pipe and fittings
    CPVC pipes are available in Copper Tube Sizes (CTS) - in accordance to ASTM D2846 "Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly(Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Plastic Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution Systems".

Typical weight and dimensions of industrial PVC and CPVC pipes equal to steel pipes schedule 40 and 80 are indicated in the table below.

Todays Churchill Thought

Churchill was approached by a rather attractive and well-endowed woman. "Mr. Churchill," she declared, "I traveled over a hundred miles this morning for the unveiling of your bust.""Madam, I assure you," he enthusiastically replied, "in that regard I would gladly return the favor!"During World War II, as Churchill was getting dressed, an aide was reading him the news: On a cold January night with the temperature below freezing, a seventy-five year old man had been arrested for having sex with a nineteen-year-old prostitute on the lawn in Hyde Park. Churchill replied to the aide, "My God! Sex in public, temperature below-zero, over seventy-five with a nineteen year-old! It makes one proud to be an Englishman"
