What is High Purity Piping?


High purity piping is often used for life science facilities, biopharmaceutical companies, as well as advanced technology. In many of our projects with companies in the life science industry, we have used high-purity piping. As industrial plumbers, we often use high-purity piping for many of our clients. In this article, we will cover what materials are used in high-purity piping as well as the applications for these pipes. If you would like a quote on plumbing design, maintenance, or inspections, please give us a call. Our team handles industrial plumbing services in the North Shore area.


What is High Purity Piping?

High purity piping is used for facilities that need plumbing systems with zero contaminants. It is made of high-quality materials including specialized PVC, PVDF, or PFA Teflon. It is designed to prevent dirt, dust, and other contaminants from entering a plumbing system. Because of this specialization, it is used primarily in applications that require little to no contamination. For instance, a regular commercial property or home can use standard plumbing materials because there is no need to prevent small trace contaminants from entering the water. But for advanced technology facilities or for life science buildings that are working in biochemistry, it is imperative that plumbing systems and gas distribution systems do not allow any contamination.


How is High Purity Piping Made/Repaired?

Depending on the material being used, the maintenance and repair of this type of plumbing material are very particular. For instance, one material used in high purity piping is high-alloy steel or stainless steel. With metal pipes, every single weld needs to prevent any crack, pit, or void. For this reason, an industrial plumber that specializes in high purity piping needs to be called to handle any repairs needed. The team at NSMC helps a variety of clients throughout Massachusetts handle repair and maintenance projects for high purity piping.
