SPEARS® Schedule 80 PVC product designs combine years of proven experience with computer generated stress analysis to yield the optimum physical structure and performance for each fitting. Material reinforcement is uniformly placed in stress concentration areas for substantially improved pressure handling capability. Resulting products are subjected to numerous verification tests to assure obtaining the very best PVC fittings available.
Exceptional Chemical & Corrosion Resistance
Unlike metal, PVC fittings and pipe never rust, scale, or pit, and will provide many years of maintenance-free service and extended system life.
High Temperature Ratings
PVC thermoplastic can handle fluids at service temperatures up to 140° F (60° C), allowing a wide range of process applications, including corrosive fluids.
Lower Installation Costs
Substantially lower material costs than steel alloys or lined steel, combined with lighter weight and ease of installation, can reduce installation costs by as much as 60% over conventional metal systems.
Smooth interior walls result in lower pressure loss and higher volume than conventional metal fittings.
Advanced Design Specialty Fittings
Spears® wide range of innovative, improved products include numerous metal-to-plastic transition fittings and unions with Spears® patented special reinforced (SR) plastic threads.
