Clear PVC pipe is ideal for when visibility of flowing fluids is needed to monitor the piping system. Transparent pipe walls allow for direct visual monitoring of pipe cleanliness against dirt, algae and sediment as well as flow rate against buildup and blockages. The smooth inner wall of Clear PVC pipe allows maximum flow through the system and decreases the ability for sediment to gather in the system. Clear PVC pipe is a versatile piping type recommended for use in the fields of food, pharmaceuticals, hospitals, electroplating, photofinishing, and chemical installations. The clear plastic pipe is ideal for use in biofuel, bioreactors, scientific research, clean rooms, chemical synthesis, aquaculture, aquariums, aquatic parks and pools, and scenarios to allow algae growth when desired.
