Chemical Compatibility

Since our products are leak tested before they are shipped, you should never find one of our products to leak. If you ever find that one of our products is leaking, chances are you are looking at a chemical compatibility issue. Don't worry, this is an issue that we can solve with a little testing and your help.

The first thing to keep in mind is that you should test every chemical you plan to use with the product. The fact that the water worked fine in the first test, has little relevance to the acid that you actually plan to use.

Next, know what to look for. If you find that the couplings are harder to connect then they have been in the past, than you might be looking at a chemical issue. In an extreme case, if you find that the Shut-Off valves "Freeze" open, then you are very likely looking at a chemical issue. No, the products are not designed to work that way, and no it is not a flaw in the product design. What is happening is, at least one of the materials is swelling from the chemical, and because of the close tolerance of our products, the valve is clamped open. Again, this is easily solved with a little testing.

Don't be afraid to talk to us about any issues that you may have, in most cases we can easily solve it. After all, we have a very good idea what we are doing here.

The table listed here is a good place to start your testing. If you see that any of the chemicals listed are less than good, you may need a different material than what is in our standard products. Go ahead, call us at 970.593.3185 so that we can lend you a hand. We offer semi-custom options, we can help you figure out what you need.

OK now the legal stuff. The data presented in this table is for reference only. We recommend that you obtain Free Samples of our products for your testing. All information is supplied without expressed or implied warranty and does not constitute an endorsement.
