FlameGuard® CPVC CPVC Swing Check Valves

FlameGuard® CPVC CPVC Swing Check Valves

Spears® FlameGuard® CPVC Fire Sprinkler Products provide a cost effective alternative to metal systems with advantages of high corrosion resistance, improved system hydraulics, ease of installation and quick assembly with readily available tools. CPVC Fire Sprinkler Systems are based on proven products that have been in continuous service for over 40 years. Spears® FlameGuard® products are approved by UL®, FM® Global, LPCB and Certified by NSF International for potable water use. Check local codes for restrictions and limitations.

Corrosion Resistant CPVC Material Does Not Sustain Biological Growth

Unlike metal systems, FlameGuard® CPVC products never rust, scale or pit and do not sustain biological growth - a cause of Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) which can destroy metal fire sprinkler systems from the inside out.

Superior Flow Characteristics for Lower Friction Losses

The smooth-wall interior surfaces of FlameGuard® CPVC systems result in reduced friction loss over metal systems. The design flow characteristics remain constant throughout the life of the product because there is no interior corrosion in the system due to microbiological activity.

Pressure Rated to 175 psi (1200kpa) @ 150°F (65°C)

FlameGuard® CPVC Products are produced in combinations of Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 Fitting configurations conforming to ASTM F 438 or F 439 standards and FlameGuard® SDR 13.5 CPVC Fire Sprinkler Pipe conforming to ASTM F 442 standards. UL® Rated working pressure is 175 psi (1200kpa) @ 150°F (65°C) (LPCB rated to 120°F) (49°C).

Easy Installation for Lower Costs

FlameGuard® CPVC system installations significantly reduce costs over conventional metal piping by virtually eliminating prefabrication. Systems can be fully installed on site using solvent cement joining methods.

UL® Listed for U.S. and Canada in NFPA 13, 13R & 13D Systems
