RPVC/ UPVC (Rigid Polyvinyl Chloride/ Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes are now the default for most use-cases in the agricultural sector. Because of their cost-effectiveness, strength and variety, PVC pipes and fittings have become the go-to option for most farmers across the globe.
In agriculture where the main requirement for pipes is for moving water along complex water system, hydroponic structures or across long uneven terrains, strength and durability are two most critical features for pipes in this sector – and RPVC/UPVC pipes undoubtedly have both these qualities in spades.
Let’s look more closely at what makes RPVC pipes perfect for agricultural activities:
RPVC pipes are tough
Not only can RPVC pipes manage high water pressure, but they are also strong enough to withstand the external weight of agricultural equipment such as tractors or wheelbarrows, which might go over them occasionally.
Apart from its intrinsic strength, RPVC pipes are also extremely long-lasting. They are all-weather friendly, corrosion and rust resistance, and chemical and UV resistant as well. These qualities ensure that they don’t crack or degrade in a harsh outdoor environment.
RPVC pipes present an economical option as compared to metal or rubber pipes. They cost a fraction of these materials, and this financial benefit can be passed on the end consumers as well. Also, due to its light weight, handling, transport and storage expenses are much reduced.
PVC pipes are available in numerous structures, and you can easily find any size, thickness, or length option you want for your specific project. RPVC pipes also come with a variety of fittings which makes them customisable for any terrain and purpose. They come with the option of solvent cement bonding (also known as pipe glue) which connects pipes and fittings by bonding two separate pieces together permanently. This process makes the RPVC pipe and fitting joints air and watertight.
