Water is a scarce commodity and access to clean drinking water is a pressing need for much of the world’s population. Yet water comprises more than 70% of the surface area of our planet. National governments and water authorities are challenging their engineers and procurement officials to find technology that will ensure high-quality, reliable and low cost drinking water supply sources. The desalination of sea water is one such option. CPVC piping systems in desalination applications offer a cost-effective solution for providing clean, potable water in harsh coastal & desert environments. This paper will discuss the chemical resistance of CPVC and its use in desalination applications, while improving reliability and confidence, reduced capital and life cycle costs.
