PVC Tubing Benefits
PVC tubing is much lighter than most other materials. Therefore, PVC tubing is easier to maneuver, which prevents injury and reduces the number of people it takes to move equipment.
PVC tubing is also highly flexible, which makes it resistant to breakage and typically more durable than other materials.
Because PVC tubing is made of non-toxic materials, they are typically safer to use.
There has been a significant amount of research that has gone into testing PVC tubing materials for overall safety and quality.
Versatility is another one of the many benefits of PVC tubing. PVC tubing is durable and offers more options when it comes to design and use.
Many businesses even use PVC to refurbish existing systems for even greater versatility.
Other benefits of PVC tubing include the following:
- chemical resistance
- corrosion resistance
- excellent abrasion
- wear resistance
- rubber-like flexibility
- visual contact with the flow (clear PVC tubing and hose styles)
- outstanding flow characteristics
Applications for PVC Tubing
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, a variety of construction options offered (wired or braid reinforcement, rigid pipe, un-reinforced) and the different formulations available (fuel and oil, 3A, FDA, NSF listed) make PVC tubing attractive for numerous applications. These include the following:
- general industrial applications
- food and beverage applications
- potable water lines
- pharmaceutical and medical applications
- mechanical applications (protective coverings and insulation sleeving)
These are just a few of the many benefits of PVC tubing, which also has a a variety of applications. Contact Bryan Hose & Gasket with the link below for more information or to order you PVC tubing today!
