Hydraulic capacity

TOM® PVC-O piping systems have between 15% and a 40% more hydraulic capacity than systems with pipes made from other materials and with the same  external diameter.

This is because Molecular Orientation reduces the thickness of the pipe wall, giving TOM® pipes a greater internal diameter and flow section.

Besides, the internal surface is extremely smooth, reducing load loss and making it more difficult for deposits to form on the inner walls.

  • Load loss
  • Fluid speed
  • Pumping energy

Subsequently, TOM® pipes carry more water using less energy than other kinds of pipes. What’s more, they are the most efficient in terms of the relationship between investment and available hydraulic capacity.
