UPVC Plumbing Systems for Easy Installation

AKG uPVC plumbing system (Solvent Weld & Threaded) is the most suitable, easy and economical solutions for distribution of potable water. It is technically superior, cost effective and offers many advantages over conventional G.I. piping system. This system is very easy to install and functionally most suitable for all plumbing applications. Apart from more than 40-50% cheaper to G.I. piping system, it has many more years of service life. This hygienic system is endowed with many good features. It is a value added long term plumbing solution for building industry.

These pipes are manufactured as per ASTM D 1785 standard and are available in sch 40, 80 & 120 pressure class. These pipes are generally used for plumbing, water supply and jet pumps.

Jointing Method

1. CUTTING

It is imperative to mark the pipe from all sides so that pipe is cut with the help of a Hand Saw. It should be a right angle cut from all the sides. The cut piece should not be with burr on edges

2. CHAMFERING

After cutting, the pipe needs to be chamfered from the outer sides. It is advisable to provide approximately 2mm wide, 150 chamfer on spigot end

3. DEBURRING AND RIDGE REMOVAL

Remove all the burrs and ridges accumulated on the inner as well as the outer edges of the pipe with the help of a deburring knife, file or abrasive paper.

4. DRYFIT TEST

Before applying solvent cement, insert the pipe end into the socket of the next pipe or fitting to check that interference occurs at about 1/3 to 2/3 of the socket depth.

5. CLEANING

Thoroughly clean the pipe with dry cloth where the solvent cement is going to be applied to avoid dust, dirt, oil, moisture and other foreign material during the installation process.

6. APPLICATION OF SOLVENT CEMENT

Mark the pipe length to be inserted for jointing. Apply a liberal coat of solvent cement with the help of the brush on the marked surface

7. JOINTING

Push the pipe inside the fitting/pipe so that it goes inside equally from all the sides. Wipe off excess solvent cement that comes out of the edges. Hold the joint for one to two minutes so that the jointing is perfect.

8. FOR THREADED JOINTS

  • Clean the Male & Female threads.
  • Apply teflon tape in the direction of thread tightening.
  • Hand-tighten the threads firmly.
  • Tighten the joint more by using pipe wrench. Do not over tighten. Use rubber packing to avoid scratches on pipe.

9. Installation and Commissioning

  • Pipeline should be installed in proper alignment & along with necessary clamps.
  • Pressure testing to be done before concealing work.
  • Pressure testing may be carried out after a curing period of 24 hrs and should not be done before that.
