Suitable pipes for its use with human consumption water
The quality of the fluid flowing through the TOM® pipe remains always unchanged since no material corrosion or migration from the pipe are produced. The relevant testing have been carried out to ensure that its excellent qualities meet the Royal Decree 140/2003, which establishes the health criteria for the quality of water for human consumption. There have also been rigorous tests laid down by French law, obtaining the appropriate health certificate ACS (Attestation de Conformité Sanitaire) as well as other international health certificates.
The TOM® Oriented PVC pipe is immune to corrosion and to chemicals found in nature, as well as to attacks from micro and macro organisms and therefore, it is not degradable. Besides, it does not require any special protection or coating, which results in cost savings.
All this makes the TOM® pipe the best application for pressurized water pipelines, and especially, for drinking water supply networks.
