The CPV-Zurn chemical drainage system has been well-proven in a wide variety of laboratory applications in schools, universities and hospitals as well as medical, pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical and biotechnology research facilities. The system can also be used for conveying low-level radioactive waste liquids.

Complete System

The CPV-Zurn system contains a wide range of joints, fittings and ancillary components to cover most applications, including items such as bench fittings, floor drains, gullies, neutralisation tanks, pH monitoring systems, ventilation, fire stops, fixings, tools, etc.

Quick and Easy to Install

With a choice of mechanical or electro-fusion techniques, the flexible range of easy-to-fit joints require no grooving and offer lower installation costs - reducing the chance of faulty installations.
