Double Containment Pipe
Double Containment Pipe is used in applications where aggressive media has to be contained and protected throughout the movement of the media. Double Containment pipe is vital to environmental safety. Double Containment piping systems allow aggressive chemicals to flow through the proper carrier pipe while a backup containment pipe is surrounding the carrier pipe preventing any leaks or spread of the chemical into the environment. Double Containment PVC pipe is easily assembled in the field and allow the system 30 days for media transport of a chemical if anything were to happen to the carrier pipe. Containment systems must have a minimum of a manual leak detection kit for drainage systems and an automatic lead detection kit for pressure systems. These systems can be installed using simultaneous or staggered butt fusion. The systems are offered in schedule 40 PVC, schedule 80 PVC, Clear, CPVC, Polypro, and PVDF.
