Chemical & Corrosion Resistant CPVC

One of the key advantages of Spears® LabWaste™ CPVC System is its excellent resistance to a broad range of corrosive environments. CPVC is inert to most mineral acids, bases, salts and aliphatic hydrocarbons, and compares favorably to other plastics in these chemical environments.

General Chemical Resistance Overview:

Weak Acids - Excellent         Salts - Excellent
Strong Acids - Excellent        Aliphatic Solutions - Good
Weak Bases - Excellent        Halogens - Good-Fair
Strong Bases - Excellent      Strong Oxidants - Good-Fair

The LabWaste™ CPVC System has been developed for use in Academic, Research, and Institutional Laboratory chemical waste drainage applications. These plumbing systems are characterized by the routine disposal of a wide variety of hot and cold chemical wastes in accordance with prudent laboratory practices for drainage disposal.

Manufactured to ASTM F 2618 in Full Line of Drainage Pattern Fitting Confi gurations

Spears® broad line of LabWaste™ CPVC pipe & fittings are manufactured to ASTM F 2618 Specifications for CPVC Pipe & Fittings for Chemical Waste Drainage Systems and produced in ASTM D 3311 drainage patterns or to manufacturer's specifications. Standard configurations are available in nominal sizes of 1-1/2" through 24" with many specialty fittings and accessories, like dilution traps, (water dilution being critical in the prevention of exothermic chemical interactions within all plumbing systems).

NSF® Certified For Corrosive Waste

Spears® LabWaste™ Corrosive Water Drainage System of pipe, fittings, and cement is tested and certified for use in corrosive waste systems by NSF® International to ASTM F 2618, tested to IAPMO IGC 210, Certified to the Uniform Plumbing Code and ICC-ES listed to PMG-1018 for CPVC Chemical Waste Systems.

Cost Saving Solvent Weld Joining Eliminates the need for Electro-Fusion Joints and for Mechanical Joint Connections in Concealed Spaces

A proven joining method reliably used for over 50 years, Solvent Cement Welding requires no special tools, no costly fusion equipment, and provides a solid, chemically bonded joint for easy installation, repairs or alterations. Most importantly, solvent cement joints end problems typical of polypropylene system installation, such as mechanical connector pullout, maintaining mechanically sealed joints, leaks from fusion wire corrosion, and cumbersome fusion joining methods. Saves time, saves cost, saves worry!

A Flame & Smoke Rated Piping System

Spears® LabWaste™ system components have been evaluated and Listed by Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC®) as fi nished products for surface burning characteristics under CAN/ ULC S102.2 and tested to UL 723/ASTM E 84, for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials (NFPA 255, ANSI/ UL 723 and UBC 8-1), and showed a fl ame spread of < 25 and a smoke developed index of < 50.

Applicable Conformance Standards & Certifications

Spears® LabWasteTM CPVC Corrosive Waste Drainage System is a complete system of pipe, fittings and solvent cement independently (3rd party) tested, evaluated and certified by the following laboratories and agencies. Each of these approvals is routinely monitored through an ongoing program of periodic inspection and testing by the certifying agency.

  • ASTM F 2618 - Certified for corrosive waste and use by NSF® International (NSF-cw) in accordance with ASTM F 2618, Standard Specification for Chlorinated Poly (Vinyl Chloride) (CPVC) Pipe and Fittings for Chemical Waste Drainage Systems.

Acid Neutralization/Dilution Tanks for Use With LabWaste™ CPVC Systems

Neutralization or dilution tanks are required by codes for the purpose of neutralizing corrosive wastes. Corrosive liquids, spent acids or other harmful chemicals that destroy or injure a drain, sewer, soil or waste pipe, or create noxious or toxic fumes or interfere with sewage treatment processes are prohibited from being discharged into the plumbing system without being neutralized or treated. Spears® offers a standard selection of HDPE tanks in 5 gallon to 3000 gallon capacities and CPVC tanks in 5 gallon to 55 gallon capacities to meet these needs. Tanks can also be produced in virtually any custom size, shape, or connection confi guration. Contact Spears® Technical Services with desired specifi cations for custom quotation. See Spears® price schedule LWNT-1, LabWaste™ Neutralization Tanks & Accessories for additional information on the following features and options.
