Plastic pipe coupling

07/13/2010


 

 

The Style 296A coupling for fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) pipe offers more efficient installation than the alternative methods of butt-and-wrap and adhesive bell-and-spigot pipe joints. It is ideal for industrial applications such as fly ash, slurry systems, cooling water, waste water, condensate, mild acids/chemicals, oil lines and drainage systems. The coupling engages into pre-manufactured patent pending Advanced Groove System (AGS) grooved built-up FRP pipe ends to form a secure, rigid pipe joint for pressures up to 150 psi/1035 kPa. No additional pipe supports are needed. Unlike joints employing epoxies and adhesives, the Style 296A does not require cure time or pipe flow inspection, and no heating blankets or tents are needed for installation during poor weather. Furthermore, no special tools are required to install the couplings.

The coupling also allows for quick and simple piping system maintenance. The Style 296A provides a union at every joint and can be removed for access to the system and replaced once maintenance is complete, resulting in decreased system downtime.
