Blue Rhino PN16 PVC-M Pressure Pipe Imperial CIOD Series 2 Rubber Ring Joint
BLUE RHINO PN16 is a tough, high strength PVC (PVC-M) pressure pipe suitable for a wide variety of applications. Modified PVC incorporates advanced technology which gives BLUE RHINO pipe superior qualities over conventional PVC-U pipe including: higher impact resistance, greater ductility, lighter weight and an increase in hydraulic capacity. Applications include but are not limited to:
- Urban portable water supply
- Agricultural irrigation and rural water supply
- Industrial processing fluids
Manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS4765 Modified PVC (PVC-M) pipes for pressure applications for Series 2 pipe C.I.O.D. (Cast Iron Outside Diameter Compatible). Iplex PVC-M pipes are independently certified in accordance with the test requirements of AS/NZS 4765. Approval Mark Certificate Number WM 74531.
Rubber Rings included in price
**Availability subject to conversion to PVC-O
No adverse effect on water quality
Hydro pipes will not affect the taste, smell, appearance or health aspects of drinking water.
Hydro pipes are totally unaffected by soil and water chemicals and will not be affected by anything that can normally be found in sewage effluent.
Whether supplied in Series 1 for the irrigation industry or Series 2 for the water industry, Iplex PVC-M is fully compatible with existing pipeline systems with the full range of valves and fittings available.
PVC is already recognised as the lightest and easiest of pipeline materials to handle. Iplex PVC-M further increases this advantage. Depending on size and class, weight savings in excess of 10% over PVC-U is available.
The increased internal diameter for a given external diameter makes Iplex PVC-M a more efficient conduit than PVC-U and ductile iron.
Improved Material Performance
The tough ductile nature of PVC-M allows the use of higher design stress, enabling pipes to be manufactured with reduced wall thickness and larger internal diameters. This delivers greater flow capacity and lower pumping costs than PVC-U pipes.
