Originally, the ship’s pipes were made of steel. Steel meets the marine requirements according to the IMO regulations, but it is also very susceptible to corrosion. After several years, there were countless issues with poor flow in the onboard, hotand cold-water systems and poor potable water quality.
The badly rusted steel pipes needed to be replaced. IPEX Xirtec® CPVC pipe and fittings were chosen to replace the old steel pipe.
IPEX Xirtec® CPVC pipe, valves and fittings meet IMO specifications, making it ideal for the corrosive marine environment.View Document
