Clear PVC Pipe & Fittings from NewAge Industries Allow Visual Contact with the Flow

May 19, 2006

Now available from NewAge Industries is rigid PVC pipe made to schedule 40 dimensions that’s clear to allow users to view what’s inside. Eight styles of fittings are also stocked for a completely clear system. Applications that benefit from clear, rigid PVC pipe include laboratories, food and beverage processing, sight gauges, pharmaceutical manufacture, hospital use, chemical processing, dry food lines, and others.

Called Clear-40®, the product combines the corrosion and chemical resistance—and clarity*—of PVC with the advantage of a rigid tube that does not need ties or clamps to hold it upright or level. It may be used interchangeably with standard schedule 40 fittings of gray or white.

Clear-40 pipe and fittings are manufactured from a clear, virgin grade, PVC compound. All ingredients are non-toxic and conform to FDA standards for use with food contact surfaces, and the product is listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF 61) for use with potable water. Clear-40’s smooth interior pipe surface provides excellent flow characteristics. Both the pipe and fittings are non-conductive and flame retardant, offering a U.L. rating of 94 VO.

Stocked sizes of Clear-40 range from 1/4” through 4” nominal pipe size. Fittings styles consist of 90° and 45° elbows, T’s, male and female adapters, couplers, reducer bushings, and caps. Custom options include bell-shaped ends, other fitting configurations, longer lengths, and schedule 80 dimensions.

*Clear-40® is completely transparent but has a slight blue tint.

Note: All assemblies should be permanently glued using primer and cement.
