PPSU PEX valves are valves made of polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) material that are used in PEX plumbing systems. These valves are durable and have high-temperature and chemical resistance, making them suitable for use in a wide range of applications. PPSU PEX valves come in different types, including ball valves, gate valves, and check valves. They can be used in both hot and cold water applications, and some types can also be used for gas applications. The PPSU material used in these valves is approved for use in drinking water systems and is known for its long-term durability and reliability.
There are several types of PPSU PEX valves available, including:
PPSU PEX ball valves - These are the most commonly used type of PPSU PEX valve. They have a ball inside the valve that can be rotated to control the flow of water.
PPSU PEX gate valves - These valves have a gate that is lowered or raised to control the flow of water. They are often used in applications where a tight seal is needed.
PPSU PEX check valves - These valves are designed to allow water to flow in only one direction. They are commonly used in systems where backflow prevention is necessary.
PPSU PEX angle valves - These valves are designed to be installed at an angle in the plumbing system. They are often used to connect plumbing fixtures such as sinks or toilets to the main water supply.
PPSU PEX stop valves - These valves are used to shut off the water supply to a specific area of the plumbing system. They are often used in emergencies or for maintenance purposes.
PPSU PEX valves are made from polyphenylsulfone, which is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic. Some characteristics of PPSU PEX valves include:
Corrosion resistance: PPSU PEX valves are highly resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for use in plumbing systems.
High temperature resistance: PPSU PEX valves can withstand high temperatures, making them suitable for use in hot water systems.
High pressure resistance: PPSU PEX valves can withstand high pressures, making them suitable for use in both residential and commercial applications.
Chemical resistance: PPSU PEX valves are highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making them suitable for use in a variety of applications.
Durability: PPSU PEX valves are highly durable and can withstand repeated use over a long period of time.
Easy installation: PPSU PEX valves are lightweight and easy to install, reducing the time and effort required for installation.
