ABS 1100 Series Valve Available Now
Prochem 1100 series valves are now available in ABS.
We are pleased to announce that the Prochem 1100 series valves are now available in ABS. Due to global issues sourcing ABS round bar material, some sizes are not available, please check with us for availability.
Acrylonitrile – Butadiene – Styrene (ABS) is renowned for its high impact strength and durability which combine to give exceptional toughness. ABS is useful at sub-zero temperatures, it retains high levels of impact strength. Joints are made using solvent cement, which requires no special tools. With the benefit of low temperature handling characteristics down to -40°C, ABS is used for applications in conditioning and chilled water piping systems.
Another key benefit is the high impact strength of the material, making ABS ideal where potential damage may occur. It has good chemical resistance to a wide range of chemicals including salt solutions, and most dilute acids and bases. ABS is not resistant to concentrated mineral acids, organic acids, solvents such as esters, ketones, chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons.
Sizes and connection options are the same as our PVC, PVDF and Polypropylene materials except for 3/8” BSP screwed. Both loading and pressure relief valve options are as the rest of the 1100 series range and they also meet the same pressure settings for plastic valves. ABS body valves conform to PED 2014/68/EU as a pressure relief valve to Modules B and D of the directive.
