PVC pipe failure analysis

PVC PIPE Failure Analysis

Applied Technical Services offers PVC pipe failure analysis for clients in multiple industries, including construction, water distribution, and electrical. Our knowledgeable team of experts can quickly and accurately determine the cause of failure in your PVC piping system using diverse capabilities that are available in our advanced metallurgy and materials testing lab.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping is made from a type of thermoplastic with high strength, rigidity, and hardness. However, PVC piping systems are not immune to developing deformities such as softening, degradation, erosion, and cracking. Over time, deformities can cause PVC pipes to rupture – resulting in lost time and money for your operation. Ruptures can happen as a result of manufacturing defects, improper installation, or extreme environmental conditions.
