ASTRAL AQUARIUS PLUS

 

ASTRAL have been relentless in its commitment to quality and service. Through the years, ASTRAL have broadened and enhanced its product line to serve better to the customers. ASTRAL was first to introduce CPVC pipes and fittings in Indian market and now repeating its tradition, ASTRAL is very proud to introduce Lead Free ASTM PVC Solvent Weld Industrial Piping System under the brand name Aquarius+. Astral Aquarius+ ASTM PVC pipes and fittings are Lead Free and hence non-toxic, easy to install and are make for life time trouble free service. Astral Aquarius+ pipes and fittings are available in range of 15 mm (1/2”) to 300 mm (12”) with two different class SCH 40 and SCH 80 respectively.

 

As the full line leading manufacturer of CPVC pipes and fittings for industrial application and now with ASTM PVC pressure pipes and fittings, ASTRAL can be your one stop source for all the plastic piping system you require for all Industrial Applications.

 

PVC – POLYVINYL CHLORIDE:

PVC is one of the specified thermoplastic for piping system components, including valves, fittings, flanges and many speciality products. PVC has excellent chemical and corrosion resistance to a broad range of fluids.

ASTRAL PVC materials conform to ASTM Cell Classification 12454-B of ASTM D1784 (formally designated as Type 1 Grade 1). The maximum recommended service temperature of PVC products is 60o C (140o F).

 *Pressure rating applies for water at 23°C. For temperatures greater than 23°C see derating factors. For fluids other than water the full pressure rating may not apply; see chemical resistance table.

**Schedule 40 pipe or Schedule 80 pipe 6" or larger should never be threaded. Schedule 80 pipe operating above 82°C should not be threaded. Use flanged joints, unions, or victaulic couplings where occasional disassembly is necessary

PVC valves will typically be rated to either 150 psi or 225 psi at 23°C. Derating factors for higher temperatures are shown here. Contact ASTRAL for specific information on PVC valves. Pressure Ratings for Flanged Systems Flanged systems of any size should not exceed 150 psi working pressure.


Pressure Ratings for Threaded Systems Threaded systems are derated to 50% of the pressure rating for the piping at the system operating temperature.

 

 

 

 

 

STRONG & LIGHT WEIGHT:

ASTRAL Aquarius+ Lead Free Industrial Piping System is tough, durable with high tensile and impact strength. The system is light in weight and can be transported easily from one place to another.

 

EASY TO INSTALL – SIMPLE & LEAK PROOF JOINTS:

ASTRAL Aquarius+ pipes can be cut, shaped, welded and jointed easily. Jointing can be done speedily with special IPS solvent cement supplied by the company which ensures 100% leak proof joints

 

FIRE RESISTANT:

ASTRAL Aquarius+ Industrial Piping System is inherently difficult to ignite and stops’ burning once the source of heat is removed.

 

UV STABILIZED:

ASTRAL Aquarius+ Industrial Piping System can be used in sunlight exposed conditions. However, ASTRAL recommends a standard grade of exterior latex paint (water base) which will protect the system adequately.

 

SAFE MATERIAL FOR DRINKING WATER:

ASTRAL Aquarius+ pipes are non-toxic and lead free which makes them a safe material for potable water.
