Thank you for your inquiry to the PPFA concerning your application of piping for
For your application, ethyl
alcohol at a slight vacuum and temperature of up to 140°F, ABS and CPVC should handle the application quite well.
You may want to consider other
thermoplastics that would also handle this application such as PVC (140°F is the max, temperature limitation), Polyethylene
and Cross-linked Polyethylene (PEX) or Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF).
ABS, PVC and CPVC are cementable
while the other plastics can be joined using heat fusion and, or mechanical-type joints (PEX in particular).
