Large Diameter PVC Pipe to Support Big Projects
IPEX Centurion® offers the corrosion-free benefits of Blue Brute® for larger diameter pipes and new applications. The versatility and ease of installation for this large diameter pipe is unmatched while offering cost-savings over other construction materials. Centurion® large diameter pipe is tested and meets the standards required for AWWA C900 and every length of pipe is tested.
Engineers and contractors, and project owners, trust IPEX Centurion® for multiple applications, including municipal transmission mains, sewer force mains, irrigation piping, industrial lines, and gravity sewer mains.
Unmatched Performance and Compatibility
- IPEX Centurion® is manufactured with a cast iron outside diameter (CIOD) so it is compatible with much of the existing older infrastructure of iron pipes. In addition, IPEX Centurion® can be field cut, which means unexpected changes in the field can be accommodated quickly, without having to wait for new shop drawings
- IPEX’s patented gasket system not only withstands pressure testing to two times the rated system pressure, but also withstands full vacuum pressures. The removable gasket system allows special oil-resistant (nitrile) gaskets to be easily installed when working in contaminated soils
- The glass-like finish of PVC reduces friction losses and eliminates the tuberculation common in iron pipes. As a result, pumping costs are reduced and water quality is maintained
Large diameter PVC fittings
IPEX Centurion® Fittings are manufactured using sections of AWWA C900 pipe, overwrapped with a layer of fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP). While IPEX Centurion® is compatible with iron fittings, IPEX recommends the use of IPEX Centurion® fittings exclusively with IPEX Centurion® pipe.

Pipe must conform to AWWA C900 and be certified to CSA B137.3 “Rigid Poly (Vinyl Chloride) (PVC) Pipe for Pressure Applications.”DR51, 41, 32.5, 25, 18, and 14 pipe must have the following pressure class/rating: 80 psi (550 kPa), 100 psi (690 kPa), 125 psi (860 kPa), 165 psi (1 140 kPa), 235 psi (1 620 kPa) and 305 psi (2 100 kPa). For pressure applications, each length of pipe must be hydro-tested at twice the class/rating and a short-term pressure test must be conducted once per production run. Pipe to be IPEX Centurion or approved equal.
Fabricated fittings shall be made from segments of AWWA C900 pipe that are butt fused or bonded together. Some fittings are over-wrapped with fiberglass-reinforced polyester. The fittings must always meet the pressure rating of the pipe system.
