Novadrain SN16 PVC-U DWV Pipe Rubber Ring Joint
NOVADRAIN™ SN16 is a solid wall PVC-U pipe, and may be manufactured either as plain solid wall pipe, or sandwich construction (SC) solid wall pipe in some sizes. Applications include:
- Above ground gravity, drain, waste and vent applications
- General Municipal Drainage
- Domestic house drains
- Urban gravity sewer mains
- Industrial gravity discharge lines
- Abrasive slurries in quarrying and mining
- Acids, alkalies and aggressive chemicals
NOVADRAIN™ pipes are manufactured in accordance with AS/NZS 1260, PVC-U pipes and fittings for drain, waste and vent applications. Iplex PVC-U gravity pipes are independently certified in accordance with the test requirements of AS/NZS 1260, Standards Mark Licence number SMK20184 and SMK20185, and comply with the Best Environmental Practice PVC requirements of AS/NZS 1260.
NOVADRAIN™ Class SN16 is considered to be suitable for plumbing and domestic use, and for general municipal drainage.ENQUIRE NOW
Extremely smooth bores, precision joints, and lack of internal projections encourage flow capacity over the total life of the
PVC-U does not support combustion.
PVC-U is a non-conductor of electricity, and is therefore not subject to galvanic or electrolytic action.
Resistance to tree roots
Iplex DWV elastomeric seal joints have been designed with high interface pressures which, when coupled with smooth, impervious PVC socket and spigot surfaces, provide high resistance to tree root intrusions.
Low installation cost
The light weight of Iplex DWV pipes together with longer pipe lengths, flexibility and the use of narrow trench widths minimises installation costs.
PVC-U has excellent chemical resistance to hydrogen sulphide and the acids or chemicals normally expected to be encountered in sewer drain and waste applications.
In some cases manholes can be replaced with PVC-U riser and access points. The spacing of manholes can be increased due to reduced incidence of blockage and increased flow rates.
Leakage significantly reduced
Ground water infiltration and sewerage exfiltration due to broken and cracked elements and joint openings caused by ground movement are significantly reduced by the precision joints, flexible pipe barrel and sealed access points provided by PVC-U sewer pipe systems.
