(Easton, PA) - Harvel® Plastics, Inc. announces the launch of HydroKing® Commercial, a line of IPS SDR 11 CPVC hot and cold water plumbing pipe engineered specifically for multi-story commercial water systems in both new construction and retrofits. HydroKing® Commercial offers a cost-effective alternative to metal water systems and is easily installed using Schedule 80 CPVC fittings with solvent-welded joining techniques.
Harvel manufactures HydroKing® Commercial in iron pipe sizes (IPS) to SDR 11 dimensions (2-1/2", 3", and 4") in strict accordance with ASTM F442, Standard Specification for CPVC plastic pipe. HydroKing® Commercial provides an array of unique user advantages including high-pressure bearing capacity, improved water flow, fire resistance, corrosion resistance, easy assembly and installation, energy efficiency, quiet operation, high water quality, and low installation costs.
"Due to the continued rising cost of metal piping, HydroKing® Commercial is ideally suited for commercial water distribution systems, including system risers, in multi-story construction, " says Bill Weaver, director of technical services at Harvel. "A safe, cost-effective alternative to iron and copper piping, HydroKing® Commercial will outperform and outlast metallic systems due to its inherent corrosion resistance and other performance-based factors. HydroKing® Commercial offers significant installed cost-saving advantages over metallics."
HydroKing® Commercial CPVC piping is routinely tested for strength and durability as well as conformance to national standards through rigorous quality assurance testing. HydroKing Commercial pipe bears the NSF stamp of approval for potable water applications and meets all major building code standards. It is listed by NSF to Standard 61, Standard 14, CSA B137.6 CPVC for hot and cold water distribution systems, and also listed for surface burning characteristics by ULC.
