Surface Analysis

Harvel LXT piping has a non-porous, exceptionally smooth interior surface that greatly reduces the potential for extractable and particle contamination while impeding bacterial proliferation. Harvel LXT pipe exhibits an average Roughness Analysis value of: Ra ≤ 0.25 μm (≤ 10 μ inch) measured in the axial direction.

Internal Roughness Comparison

Harvel LXT piping has been evaluated side-by-side with other common piping materials at various magnifications for surface roughness comparison, as shown below.
