SCH 40 (Schedule 40) DWV PVC Pipe
SCH 40 (Schedule 40) pipe is a type of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or steel pipe commonly used in plumbing, irrigation, and other applications where fluid flow under pressure is required. Here are some key characteristics of SCH 40 pipe:
Material: SCH 40 pipe is made of rigid polyvinyl chloride. It is lightweight, easy to handle, and resistant to corrosion and chemicals. PVC SCH 40 pipes are commonly used in residential and commercial plumbing systems, irrigation, and drainage applications.
Size and Dimensions: SCH 40 pipe comes in various sizes, ranging from 1/8 inch to 24 inches in diameter. The pipe size corresponds to the inside diameter of the pipe. The outside diameter and wall thickness vary based on the material and pipe size.
Pressure Rating: SCH 40 pipe is designed to handle moderate to high-pressure applications. The "40" in SCH 40 refers to the pressure rating, indicating that the pipe can withstand a maximum pressure of 40 pounds per square inch (psi) at a specific temperature. PVC SCH 40 pipe typically has a lower pressure rating compared to steel SCH 40 pipe.
Jointing: PVC SCH 40 pipe is commonly joined using solvent cement, which creates a strong and leak-proof bond between pipe and fittings. Steel SCH 40 pipe is typically joined using threaded connections or welding, depending on the specific requirements and application.
SCH 40 pipe is widely used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings for a variety of applications that require fluid flow under pressure. It is essential to select the appropriate material (PVC or steel) based on the specific requirements, such as pressure, temperature, and chemical compatibility.
