PVF Industrial is YOUR best source of products for pipes, valves, and fittings in the industrial and construction industries. We are a thermoplastic PVC distributor with a large stocked warehouse located in Tampa, Florida.
About PVC Valves
PVC pipe valves are used in piping applications to control media flow and allow repair on the plumbing system. There are many PVC valves, and we offer the most used valve types manufactured by the industry’s top brands.
The most common PVC valves are the true union ball valve, true union check valve, compact ball valve, butterfly valve, gate valve, diaphragm valve, and swing check valve. The plumbing valves typically come in white, gray, or clear schedule 80 PVC and schedule 80 CPVC depending on the select valve model.
At PVF Industrial, we offer high quality industrial, PVC, CPVC, Polypro, PVDF, and specialty valves and controls. The valve sizes available range from 1/2 inches up to 12 inches or more and differ by valve type. Every one of our valves is pressure tested to at least 150 PSI for liquid systems. These PVC valves are designed to connect by either socket and glue installation, socket and thread, thread and tape, or flange-type joints. Our pipe valves are well suited for and often used in wastewater treatment plants, chemical stations, water parks, aquariums, swimming pools, agriculture, and general irrigation, water delivery type applications.
PVC, also known as Polyvinyl Chloride, offers corrosion and erosion-resistant material for various residential, industrial, and commercial valve uses.
CPVC, also known as Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride, is a variant of PVC that is more flexible and can withstand higher temperatures. Both PVC and CPVC are lightweight yet rugged materials that are rust-proof, making them perfect for many water applications.
Polypropylene, also known as PP, is a member of the polyolefin family of pure hydrocarbon plastics. PP is one of the most versatile chemical resistance of the thermoplastic materials identified as the sentinels of industrial piping. PP is used for drainage of mixed industrial chemicals for over 40 years. It is also suitable for milder solutions of most acids, alkalis, salts, and many organic chemicals, including solvents.
Polyvinylidene Fluoride, also known as PVDF, is a tough, abrasion-resistant fluorocarbon material. PVDF has a design stress of 1,360 psi at 73° F and a maximum service temperature of 280° F. It also has versatile chemical resistance to salts, strong acids, dilute bases, and many organic solvents.
PVDF is used for handling wet or dry chlorine, bromine, and other halogens. There are no other solid thermoplastic piping materials that can compete with the combined strength, working temperature, and chemical resistance characteristics of PVDF.
Specific industries, such as electronics, pharmaceutical, and processed foods and beverages, use PVDF material because of its high purity, low surface, and joint extractables, and elevated temperature sanitation capability.
Valves made of PCV and CPVC are commonly used in chemical process, potable water, irrigation, water treatment and wastewater, landscaping, pool, pond, fire safety, brewing, and other food and beverage applications. They are an excellent low-cost solution for most flow control needs. You can also get all kinds of valves to stop and start the flow of water or air inside your PVC project.
Valve Design Advantages
- Extra-large, heavy-duty diameter shaft is reinforced by additional resin and eliminates stem breaks.
- Double shaft O-rings.
- PTFE shaft bearing eliminates friction and wear.
- PTFE seats backed up with O-rings reduce the wear and tear of repeated cycling.
- Trunnion Design – Upper and lower supports retain ball under pressure, which allows multi-directional flow. That means that the valve is in no danger of being installed backward.
- Concentric machined and mirror-polished ball.
- Dual sliding seats use triple O-rings for balance and maximum leak protection.
- Smooth flow path eliminates pressure loss.
- True union ends for ease of piping and removal.
We also sell complementary products to go with our pipes, valves, and fittings. Those products include types of cement, primers, cleaners, brushes, applicators, and hand tools.
