- Material: UPVC
- Dimension: acc. to DIN 8062
- Colour: transparent - Transparency depends on outer diameter and wall thickness! Chemical and thermical stress can cause discolouration
- Pipe length: 5000mm, with plain ends
- Dimensional variatios of wall thickness not acc. to DIN 8062
-Approval: food grade, with declaration of conformity acc. EU 10/2011 and EU 1593/2004, Approval on request

Attention: Pressure rates refer to operating temperatures at 20°C. Higher temperatures and aggressive flow media reduce pressure load (see above DIN and our technical documentaion). Pressure load capacity has to be determined in consideration with safety demands of the respective applications and calculated in accordance.

- Proven physiological harmlessness
- Universal use
- Very good chemical and corrosion resistance

Fields of Application:

- Chemical Process Industry
- Microelectronics
- Ship building
- water treatment



Clear Schedule 40 PVC pipe has excellent clarity and is recommended for tubing containment, visual flow and leak detection, and sight glasses.
GF Harvel Clear™ PVC Schedule 40 provides a versatile, cost-effective alternative for many piping applications, particularly those where visual monitoring of processes is critical. GF Harvel Clear™ PVC is corrosion-resistant, has smooth interior walls, is non-contaminating, has good pressure-bearing capability, uses reliable solvent-welded connections, and is easy to handle and install.

GF Harvel Clear pipe and fittings are manufactured in IPS sizes to Schedule 40 dimensions for optimum performance. This provides sufficient wall thickness for most pressure applications without jeopardizing clarity. As a rigid PVC piping, GF Harvel Clear PVC maintains its integrity in harsh environments. It is suitable for use in both positive and negative pressure applications (i.e., vacuum service).

As with all schedules of thermoplastic pipe, pressure rating is dependent on the pipe diameter selected as well as the operating temperature of the system. As temperatures rise, the pressure rating of the system decreases. Smaller diameter piping can withstand higher pressures than large diameter piping. Refer to the table below for dimensions, tolerances and pressure ratings.


Schedule 40

All PVC Schedule 40 CLEAR pipe and fittings shall be manufactured from a Type I, Grade I Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) compound with a Cell Classification of 12454 per ASTM D1784. The pipe shall be manufactured in strict compliance to ASTM D1785, consistently meeting and/or exceeding the applicable Quality Assurance test requirements of this standard with regard to material, workmanship, burst pressure, flattening, and extrusion quality. The pipe shall be manufactured in the USA by an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer. All PVC Schedule 40 CLEAR pipe shall be packaged immediately after its manufacture to prevent damage, and shall be stored indoors at the manufacturing site until shipped from factory. All pipe shall be manufactured by GF Harvel

Fields of Application:
- Sight Glass
- Dual Containment Piping
- Chemical Processing
- Food Processing
- Pharmaceuticals
- Laboratory Applications
- Waste Treatment
- Plating
- Fluid transfer with visual monitoring
- Microchip Fabrication
- Useful for containing multiple, long runs of flexible tubing

- Good pressure-bearing capability
- Smooth interior walls for unimpeded flow and reduced sediment buildup
- Chemical resistant
- Non-contaminating nature for purity applications
- Exceptional corrosion resistance
- Lower overall installed cost than other alternativesSame easy installation as standard PVC
- Combines best aspects of PVC pipe and clear double-containment systems
- Belled ends eliminate the need for couplings in long, straight runs
