Stainless steel pipes for demineralized water from reverse osmosis?Good morning everybody,
I'm designing a Reverse Osmosis treatment facility, I will also construct it, capacity 40 m3/day. The feed water is a mix of rain water and municipal drinking water (low dissolved solids concentration). My client needs demineralized water for their production of stainless steel tubes, and he proposed using their stainless steel tubes for transporting the demi water to their processes. I know CPVC pipes are the proper ones for transporting demi water, but what about stainless steel pipes? Will the material corrode eventually? under which conditions? Pros and cons of using Stainless steel or CPVC?
Thanks in advance
