Double Containment Fittings

Double Containment fittings are vital to environmental safety. Double Containment fittings allow aggressive containment piping systems to be installed and assembled while not losing any effectiveness of the system. Double Containment PVC fittings are 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. Double containment fittings allow for full system pressure ratings unless they are affected by the use of saddles, valves, or other components that carry a lower pressure rating.
