Victaulic launches high-pressure pipe system
Range includes couplings, fittings, valves and pipe preparation tools
Victaulic, the mechanical pipe joining system manufacturer, announced the launch of its StrengThin Piping System on Tuesday.
The manufacturer says the pipes are designed to work in high-pressure environments and are intended for the desalination market.
“The StrengThin system can significantly cut piping installation time for an entire high-pressure piping system, lower costs and reduce project risk during the construction of desalination facilities,” said Stephen Morrison, market director of a Global Water Systems Technology.
Offered in a range of sizes from two-inches to 16 inches, the system is rated up to 8,200kPA (1,200psi) with a minimum safety factor of three to one.
In addition the Victaulic StrengThin Piping System includes a full range of couplings, fittings, valves and a pipe preparation tool. The couplings are available as rigid or flexible.
All couplings feature an anti-biofouling Grade “EW” gasket. The gasket is designed using a Victaulic-engineered compound that does not contribute to microbiological growth.
The manufacturer has also introduced a range of Super Duplex fittings, including elbows, tees, caps and reducers. The fittings are cast with grooved ends to enable quick and easy field installations.
In addition, with a union at every joint, the system provides easy system access when required.
