PVC Pipe Weight :

PVC Weight
  • Plastic pipe is a tubular section, or hollow cylinder, made of plastic.
  • It is usually, but not necessarily, of circular cross-section, used mainly to convey substances which can flow—liquids and gases, slurries, powders and masses of small solids.
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a familiar and versatile thermoplastic especially known as a piping and fitting material used for residential and commercial plumbing applications.
  • Then, In the same thermoplastic family to PVC is chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC).
  • So, Due to the nature of PVC plastic, PVC extruders are subject to high amounts of friction and stress.
  • This means that to guarantee a long service life, PVC pipe production lines require the use of specialized extruders that utilize a twin screw extruder configuration, as well as featuring robust construction materials that can withstand the harsh PVC extruder operating conditions.
Uses :
  • PVC is mainly used for electrical and sanitary fittings.
  • Then, PVC pipes are commonly used for manufacturing sewage pipes, water mains and irrigation.
  • Possessing very long-lasting properties, PVC pipes are easy to install, lightweight, strong, durable and easily recyclable, making them cost-efficient and sustainable.
  • PVC Pipe is a product of modern technology that offers reliable and durable service to a variety of users including contractors, engineers, operators, industries, utilities, and irrigation districts.
  •  A number of performance advantages means PVC Pipes now replace many traditional materials.
Formula :
  • The formula for the calculation of PVC pipe weight is given below.
  • PVC Pipe Weight = (outside diameter – wall thickness) * wall thickness * 2.3.
  • Beside the formula this calculator works
How to Calculate ?
  • First, Enter the Outside Diameter. Then,
  • Second, Enter the Wall Thickness. Then, 
  • Click “Calculate” to get the result and then if you want to clear values Click “Reset” in addition to clear the values.
  • Finally, follow these steps to get the result.
