260 psi dwv?

Unread postAuthor: Flying_Salt » Mon Nov 27, 2006 6:34 pm

I found out that all the 3'' pipe I had is DWV :cry: . I'm planning to scrap it if I can't use it for my pneumatic. It's pressure rated to 260 psi though, and I was planning to say arounf ~70 psi, so A) am I being dumb and should just get rig of it B) what is the max pressure I can safely use it at?
Yes I am a noob, no need to remind me...

3"?

Three inches? Because I don't think that it really matters for one part. From what I heard is that it's OK to have certain parts made out of DWV.

If there is a pressure rating on the pipe (260 psi), its good to use. Keep looking at the letters on the pipe... i am pretty sure it says nsf-pw on it

Most med. Diameter pipe says that along with NSF-PW, and XXXPSI. The manufacturer must list all the ratings which include DWV applications.

K just making sure because that will be my chamber. And I don't feel like explaining to the doctor why I have pvc in my guts.
EDIT: I found NSf-pw, way on the end. Thanks everyone.

Yes, most pipes also have NSF-DWV along with the NSF-PW, because if it is rated for pressure, then it is most certainly safe for non pressure applications.
