Why Ashirvad uPVC?

Ashirvad UPVC Plumbing Pipes and Fittings

Free from toxins, odors, and tastes

Ashirvad Aqualife pipes and fittings are non-toxic, odorless, and tasteless. Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) are durable, hard to damage, and long-lasting. They do not rust, rot, or wear over a long period of time. Therefore, uPVC Aqualife solvent weld plumbing systems are a true Engineer’s delight and ideal for cold water plumbing applications.

Easy to Install and Maintain

Ashirvad Aqualife pipes and fittings are lightweight -approximately one-half the weight of aluminum and one-sixth the weight of steel. This unique quality reduces transportation, handling, and installation costs. Ashirvad Aqualife uPVC pipes and fittings require no special tools for cutting and are installed with solvent adhesive, threading, flanging, and roll-grooved joining.

Low thermal conductivity and High UV Resistance

Ashirvad Aqualife pipes and fittings have a much lower thermal conductivity factor than metal pipes. This ensures that fluids maintain a constant temperature. Ashirvad Aqualife pipes and fittings are UV resistant and defy ultra-violet degradation over the long-term.

Made from Maintenance-free Plastic

Ashirvad Aqualife pipes and fittings do not rust, pit, scale, corrode or promote build-up on the system interior. They are fittings are light in weight and on material and help reduce upfront installation costs as well as long-term repair and maintenance costs.

Lead free plumbing system is the most favored for potable water transportation worldwide.

U.V. Resistance prevents the oxidation process and helps to increase the durability of pipes and fittings. In case of using paint on uPVC piping system, only Latex based paints which are water based to make it workable and brushable. NO OIL / Solvent based paints are to be used as these paints can drastically reduce the life of the systems.

Self Alignment System for correct alignment of fittings with pipes during fitment. Fittings have an alignment mark which is to be matched with the blue stripe on the pipe during the fitment process. This is to ensure that in the concealed installations the water outlet fittings are perpendicular to the wall surface and to avoid any repair, breakage, etc, after the wall finishing has been completed. This system ensures a perpendicular and correct fit each time. Ashirvad Aqualife uPVC pipes and fittings are made with special lead free compound to ensure conformity to the latest requirements in the developed nations, the lead free compound is non-toxic and safe for drinking water purposes. Ashirvad Aqualife plumbing system has a pressure bearing capacity twice than that of the threaded pipe.

Yes, As a professional, you will quickly realize that uPVC can be installed much faster than metal systems. Financial savings are also realized with regard to lower tool costs and insurance advantage. Even considering the frequent rise and fall of the metal price structure, uPVC offers a continuing materials cost advantage, as much as full 50-60% of material savings today.

Tests performed at various independent laboratories confirm that uPVC is superior to metal systems in terms of water quality effects and “no more toxic than wood” in fire. Ashirvad Aqualife uPVC system is manufactured from a compound which is lead free and hence most favored system in terms of health and safety, LOI of uPVC is 45, which means uPVC is not really burnable in atmosphere. Once the burning source is removed, it stops burning.

Any pump, when switched on, initially if generates very high pressure.
This pressure may cause damage to initial fittings in the system. To avoid this damage following precautions to
be followed:
a. The ramp-up time to be increased. Because of increased ramp-up time, the
pump gradually build the pressure. This will not damage the initial fittings in the system.
b. Immediately after the pump, 1st and 2nd fitting used should be of metal.
c. After the metal bends, the pipe and fitting selection should be of Schedule 80, and jointing to be done with 2
step solvent cement.
d. Proper supports to be used provided to avoid the sagging of piping

WATER HAMMER is the term used to define the destructive forces, pounding noises and vibration which
develop in a piping system when a column of non-compressible liquid flowing through a pipe line is stopped
abruptly. Fast closing positive shutoff valves incorporated in plumbing system all contribute to creating water
shock which is not only annoying but damaging to pipes and appliances..
The Ashirvad Water Hammer Arrestors are designed to elliminate this effect. It features construction to comply
with requirements. It incorporates a precharged, permanent sealed air chamber to absorb the shock.The sealed
chamber prevents the loss of air to the water and assures long and trouble-free life.
Features :
● BSP solid hex brass adapter or solder end connection for easy installation.
● Approved for installation with no access panel requirement.
● May be installed in new or existing plumbing systems with a standard pipe tee vertically or
● Maintenance free – piston is the only moving part.
● Air pre-load is 60psi (4.20 bar) in the chamber.
● Factory air charged and permanently sealed.
● Long lasting product.
