Schedule 80 PVC Bushings
When two pipes of different diameters need to be connected to complete a system, these Schedule 80 PVC bushings are the ideal choice. With ends of different diameters, they can connect different sized pipes simply. These Schedule 80 PVC bushings are NSF-14 Certified and meet ASTM D11784 standards.
Schedule 80 PVC bushings perform a similar function as couplings, connecting pipes of two different sizes, but bushings allow for the connection to be tightened using a wrench. When the application demands a tight seal without the use of adhesive, such as when easy access to the system is required or when the configuration of the system changes, bushings are the preferred fitting. These Schedule 80 PVC bushings come in diameters ranging from 1/2 inch to 12 inches in many different configurations. They can be either male or female threaded depending on the needs of the system.
These bushings are made from thick Schedule 80 PVC. The thicker wall on Schedule 80 PVC means that the bushings can stand up under higher temperatures and pressures than their Schedule 40 counterparts. The bushings also have a smooth interior, so the rate of flow is not damaged by interior friction. They are often used in water treatment and irrigation, two applications where high pressure is common. They are also commonly used in chemical mixing and factory work where high temperature fluids need to be transported.
