SOLVENT WELD FITTINGS, METRIC SERIES
PVC-U

Series of fittings designed for conveying fluids under pressure with a cold chemical weld jointing system (solvent welding) using a suitable solvent cement and cleaner-primer.

PVC-U MAIN PROPERTIES AND CHARACTERISTICS:

 Good chemical resistance: U-PVC resins guarantee excellent chemical resistance with regard to most acids and alkalis, aliphatic hydrocarbons and saline solutions. U-PVC resins are also totally compatible for the handling of food grade fluids, treated and untreated drinking water, as well as demineralised water according to current national and international standards.

– Good thermal stability: Mostly in the intermediate temperature range between 20°C and 50°C, U-PVC finds its ideal application in industrial and water supplies, assuring optimal performance in terms of mechanical resistance, good rigidity, low coefficients of thermal expansion and optimal safety factors in service.

 Lifetime: U-PVC resins feature is an high value in the material strength (Minimum Required Strength MRS = 25.0 Mpa at 20°C) and an extremely extended lifetime.

PVC-C

Series of fittings designed for conveying fluids under pressure with a cold chemical weld jointing system (solvent welding) using a suitable solvent cement (TemperGLUE weldon) and cleaner-primer.

PVC-C MAIN PROPERTIES AND CHARACTERISTICS:

– High chemical resistance: the use of CORZAN™ resins, obtained from processes of post-chlorination of homopolymer PVC is a guarantee of high chemical resistance, especially to strong inorganic acids, bases and alkaline solutions, besides the optimal mechanical properties remain unchanged during the transfer of hot industrial fluids. CORZAN™ resins offer total compatibility also for the transfer of treated and untreated drinking water as well as demineralised water and spa water for therapeutic and kinotherapeutic applications.

– Optimal thermal stability: above all in the intermediate temperature range from 20°C to 85 °C C-PVC is ideal for industrial applications, guaranteeing optimal mechanical resistance, good rigidity, very low coefficients of thermal expansion and optimal safety factors in service.

– Resistance to fire: ORZAN™ C-PVC resins guarantee excellent resistance to fire, thanks to a flame onset temperature of 482°C and a high limit of oxygen index LOI = 60%. CORZAN™ C-PVC resins are classified VO, 5VB e 5VA to UL94.

– Lifetime: CORZAN™ C-PVC resins feature a high value in the circumferential breaking strength (Minimum Required Strength MRS = 25.0 MPa at 20°C) and ensure extremely extended lifetime of installations, without signs of significant mechanical or physical deterioration.

PP-H

Series of fittings designed for conveying fluids under pressure with a hot weld connection system (socket welding).

PP-H FITTINGS MAIN PROPERTIES and CHARACTERISTICS:

– High chemical resistance: the use of PP-H resins guarantees excellent chemical resistance especially in case of halogens and alkaline solutions and enables constant optimal mechanical properties thanks to the use of special additives. PP-H resins are totally compatible also for the convey of raw and drinking water, demineralised water and spa water for therapeutic and kinotherapeutic applications.

– Optimal thermal stability: mainly in the intermediate temperature range from 10°C to 80 °C PP-H finds its ideal application in industry, guaranteeing excellent mechanical and impact resistance with high safety factors.

– Lifetime: PP-H resins have a high value in the circumferential breaking strength (Minimum Required Strength MRS = 10.0 MPa at 20°C) and ensure extremely extended lifetime of installations, without signs of significant mechanical or physical deterioration.

PVDF

Series of fittings designed for conveying fluids under pressure with a hot weld connection system (socket welding).

PVDF FITTINGS MAIN PROPERTIES and CHARACTERISTICS:

– Excellent chemical resistance: The characteristics of PVDF remain unchanged in a temperature range of -40°C to +140°C. The PVDF pipeline systems is therefore ideal for all applications where high operating temperatures are required, with an extremely low level of fluid contamination, and optimal resistance to ageing under the effect of atmospheric agents and UV radiation.

– Excellent thermal stability: The characteristics of PVDF remain unchanged in a temperature range of -40°C to +140°C. The PVDF pipeline systems is therefore ideal for all applications where high operating temperatures are required, with an extremely low level of fluid contamination, and optimal resistance to ageing under the effect of atmospheric agents and UV radiation.

– Fire resistance: Solef® resins guarantee optimal fire resistance without the need for flame retardants (Limit of Oxygen Index, LOI=44%). Also, smoke emissions during combustion are moderate. Solef®PVDF resins are classified UL-94, class V-O.

– Purity: Solef® PVDF resin is an extremely pure polymer, which, unlike other plastic materials does not contain stabilizers, plastifiers, lubricants or flame retardants. It is therefore ideal to convey ultra-pure water and chemicals, where contamination-free properties are required with respect to the conveyed fluid.

– Lifetime: Solef® PVDF resins feature a high value in the circumferential breaking strength (Minimum Required Strength MRS = 25.0 MPa at 20°C) and ensure extremely extended lifetime of installations, without signs of significant mechanical or physical deterioration.

MAGNUM RANGE
MECHANICAL COMPRESSION FITTINGS FOR PE PIPES JOINTING

Magnum: Series of fittings with internal components mechanically retained together in order to avoid any possible loss when installed. Ready to join polyethylene pipes with diameters from d.16 up to d. 63 mm.

Magnum, MagnumUNI (PE side) and MagnumOT (PE side) compression fittings make use of the DSFL® exclusive low interference hydro-mechanical sealing system. This special system guarantees the insertion of pipes inside the fittings with very low manual effort and a complete operational safety.

Once the pipe is inserted, the progressive tightening of the ring nut forces the pressure bush to compress the O-ring, ensuring the water tight sealing and adjusting possible problems due to ovalized or underdimensioned pipes. The O-ring functionality and the hydraulic sealing are preserved thanks to a calibrated compression. When under pressure the clinching ring detaches from the pressure bush in order to reach the correct working position and guarantee the effective mechanical sealing.
