Lead-Free uPVC Piping for Potable Water
Astral Aquarius is a lead-free piping system for potable water, introduced by Astral for the first time in India in 2004. This system is used for cold water application and the maximum service temperature is 60°c. In earlier days, PVC pipes with threads were used in these applications and it caused joint leakage, provided less hydraulic strength due to threads, and the overall installation was more complicated. Aquarius pipes and fittings are solvent weld joint system that imparts double pressure bearing capacity than conventional PVC threaded pipes.
