Corrugated tubing fittings made of plastic are more capable of dealing with higher pH value. To connect different joints of corrugated tubes, different methods are utilized such as flexible pipe connections, coupling bands and so on. Both the stainless steel and plastic pipes have their own benefits for different applications.
Benefits of corrugated plastic pipes:
Since plastic pipes are not good conductors of electricity, they have a longer life in comparison to other materials. Abrasion on the surface is also low in plastic pipes. Plastic pipes are very strong against acidic fluids present in sewer and drains. They are very light in weight and yet carry maximum strength. Comparatively less efforts are required in installation and they are also scalable when the available space is very low. Plastic pipes ensure minimum leakage, the joints are made of strong material to not let any gaps leak the liquid. Due to high flexibility, plastic corrugated pipes are easy to transport and install.
Benefits of corrugated stainless steel pipes:
Corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) is more flexible and durable as compared to traditional piping methods. For applications such as gas piping, they are coated with an exterior plastic coating. They are leak proof as they have minimum possible joints at the time of installation. A noticeable advantage of using stainless steel pipes is time saving as they can be installed in a fraction of total time needed to install other pipes.
