Atlanta PVC-O pipes are the most advanced pipes for the conveyance of high-pressure water currently available on the market,
with a number of exceptional features for this kind of application, thanks to the process of Molecular Orientation.
PVC is essentially an amorphous polymer in which the molecules are located randomly. However, under certain conditions of
pressure, temperature and speed, by stretching the material, it is possible to orient the polymer molecules in the same direction
as which the material has been stretched.
Depending on the process parameters used and mostly stretch ratio, a higher or lower orientation degree will be obtained.
The result is a plastic with a layered structure which layers can be seen at a glance.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
- Unbeatable Impact Resistance – Atlanta Molecor pipes have a high resistance to shock. This means that are
minimized breakages during installation or during on-site trials caused by dropping or by impacts from stones. Furthermore,
Molecular Orientation prevents the propagation of cracks and scratches and eliminates the risk of rapid crack behavior.
The result is a spectacular increase in the product’s useful life.
- High short - and long-term hydrostatic resistance – Atlanta Molecor pipes offer a resistance to internal pressure of up
to two times the nominal pressure (32 bars in PN16 bar pipes or 400 psi in PN200 psi), which means they can bear
sporadic excessive pressure such as water hammers and other malfunctions in the network. Moreover, the material creep
behavior is very low, ensuring the durability of the pipe working at nominal pressure for over a hundred years.
- Excellent response to water hammers - TOM® pipes offer lower celerity than other piping systems (four times less
than ductile iron pipes), which means less water hammers caused by sudden variations in water volume and pressure.
This reduces and almost eliminates the possibility of breakage during opening and closing in the water network and when
pumping gets under way, protecting every component of the network.
Atlanta FlowGuard Pipe & Fittings
Flowguard™ Plus is a Hot and Cold Potable Water Distribution System made of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) for use
in single and multi-family homes, apartments, high-rises, hotel-motels and commercial installations. Flowguard™ Plus CPVC
has been used for hot and cold-water distribution in the United States since 1960. It has a history of superior performance
and competitive prices compared to metal and other alternative piping systems. Solvent cementing that, through chemical
bonding, essentially makes pipe joints CPVC pipe and fittings and fittings become one continuous piece. Flowguard™ Plus
CPVC meets requirements of both NSF/ANSI Standard14 – Plastic piping system components and related materials and
NSF/ANSI Standard 61- Drinking Water System, components-health affects.
Atlanta Industries Inc. is the licensed manufacturer of Lubrizol USA, formerly BF Goodrich, for Flowguard™ Plus plumbing
systems in the country. Flowguard™ Plus pipes & fittings are made from specialty plastic, chemically known as
Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC). These CPVC compounds meets cell class 24448 B as defined by ASTM D1784 and
have a design stress of 2000 PSI and a maximum service temperature up to 93ºC.
Pipes are produced in Copper Tube Size (CTS) from 15mm (1/2”) to 50 mm (2”) with the standard dimensional ratio = SDR 11
and SDR 13.5. All Atlanta CPVC pipe and Fittings in SDR 11 and SDR 13.5 are made from the identical CPVC compound having
the same physical properties. Pipes and Fittings produced as per SDR 11 meet the requirement of ASTM D2846 where as the
pipes produced with SDR 13.5 meet the requirement derived from ASTM F442, specific to CPVC Copper Tube Size (CTS) dimensions.
Atlanta Industries, Inc. also produces Flowguard™ Plus in Iron Pipe Size (IPS) available sizes are 65mm (2-1/2”) to
150mm (6”) in SCH 40 and SCH 80.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
- Biofilm Formation Resitance – Biofilm is aglue-like substance that forms when cateria adhere to surfaces in aqueous
environments. Multiple international studies have confirmed the superior antimicrobial performance of CPVC over other
piping materials, especially polypropylene (PPR).
Biofilm Formation Potential (BFP): Potential growth of bacteria on a material surface that is in contact with water
(e.g., pipes, flushing containers, storage containers).
- Turbidity Resistance – Study conducted by Prof. F. L. Hart of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute for the US Fire
Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency – 1996.
- Bacteria Resistance – During a biofilm formation potential study of pipe materials, the growth of Legionella bacteria in
the water was low when using Flowguard™ Pipes and Fittings.
Internal installations for H.R. Veenendaal I D. van de Kooiy – KIWA, the Netherlands, 1999.
- Chlorine Resistance – Flowguard™ Plus Pipes and Fittings has been tested for chlorine resistance according to NSF P171
Protocol. After 23 Years of use, there was no erosion of the pipe wall and no decrease in long-term hydrostatic performance.
- Corrosion Resistance – Unlike other materials, like metals, Flowguard™ Plus will not corrode and deteriorate due to oxidation.
- Fire Retardant – Flowguard™ Plus Pipes and Fittings inherently exhibit outstanding fire performance characteristics in
terms of limited flame propagation and low smoke generation. Flowguard™ Plus Pipes and Fitting have been evaluated by
Underwriters Laboratories Institute (ULI), South Research Institute (SWRI) and Factory Mutual (FM). Flowguard™ Plus Pipes
and Fittings have also been tested according to the EU fire classifications and obtained the best possible results for a
- Flash Ignition – Flowguard™ Plus has a flash ignition temperature of 482ºC, the highest of any piping product.
- Fire Safety – Flowguard™ Plus Pipes and Fittings have a Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) of 60. Thus, Flowguard™ Plus Pipe
and Fittings do not support combustion and won’t spread flames or generate smoke like other plastics. It also does not
increase the fire load of a property.
- Thermal Conductivity – Flowguard™ Plus plumbing systems have low thermal conductivity, helping hot water run
- Tenacity – Flowguard™ Plus Pipes and Fittings has high tensile strength compared to other thermoplastic materials.
- Weather Resistance – In-use applications, including many long-standing outdoor installations, demonstrate that
Flowguard™ Plus Pipes and Fittings can withstand long-term exposure to environmental elements without significant

then used in the transport of pure materials, including deionized water. Atlanta HDPE piping materials also meet with the approval
of the Bureau of Product Standards for the transport of potable water.
- Flexibility – Atlanta HDPE pipe is flexible, providing ease of installation. It can be curved, snaked, inserted or laid along natural
ground contours, thereby reducing installation costs and equipment requirements.
- Abrasion Resistance – Atlanta HDPE pipe has smooth, tough interior surfaces which make it an excellent material for conveying
a variety of abrasive slurries.
- Lowest Flow Resistance – The smooth interior of this pipe provides for higher flow design factors. The Hazen-Williams water
flow coefficient for Atlanta HDPE pipe 150 to 155, and the Manning “n” value is approximately 0.009, Resistance to scaling and
corrosion allows the pipe to maintain its excellent flow properties throughout service life.
