Choose a Corzan® industrial piping system to reliably transport aggressive chemicals at high temperatures without corrosion concerns

Chemical processing plants create some of the most challenging environments for industrial piping systems. The combination of aggressive chemicals and high temperatures often compromise the long-term integrity of most piping materials, causing corrosion, process leaks and premature failures that lead to costly replacements.

Corzan industrial piping systems, however, are not subject to internal or external corrosion. Made of high-performance chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), they reliably handle such aggressive chemicals as sodium hypochlorite, sodium chloride, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid and hydrochloric acid. In fact, they are inert to most acids, bases and salts, as well as aliphatic hydrocarbons.

In addition, Corzan CPVC industrial pipe and fittings handle higher temperatures than most non-metal industrial piping materials. And, with their lower overall life-cycle costs, they offer a highly cost-effective alternative to many of the higher-priced metals and glass-reinforced plastics that are often specified for corrosive environments.

As a result of their superior corrosion resistance and impact resistance, Corzan Industrial Piping Systems have been successfully used in a wide array of chemical processing plants around the world for more than 30 years, operating continuously without interruptions due to leaks or repairs.

Other benefits include:

  • Fast and easy solvent welding process creates a permanent chemical bond
  • Low thermal conductivity stabilizes pipe surface temperature which may eliminate the need for insulation
  • Stable material costs
  • Availability of full system components, including pipe, fittings, valves, duct and sheet in a wide array of sizes
  • Excellent flame and smoke characteristics
  • Technical assistance from Lubrizol’s experienced R&D and field support teams

Specify Corzan industrial pipe and fittings with confidence for a wide array of applications, including production facilities, blending operations, reagent processes, air scrubbing and wastewater treatment/demineralization operations.
