Pipe-joining system

Pipe-joining system for small-diameter, lightwall stainless-steel and carbon-steel piping in sizes 0.5 inch through 2 inches requires no welding, threading or flanges. Assembly involves cutting the pipe to size, inserting into couplings and pressing with a handheld electric or electrohydraulic tool, creating a permanent mechanical union.

Pipe-joining system for small-diameter, lightwall stainless-steel and carbon-steel piping in sizes 0.5 inch through 2 inches requires no welding, threading or flanges. Assembly involves cutting the pipe to size, inserting into couplings and pressing with a handheld electric or electrohydraulic tool, creating a permanent mechanical union. The system is rated to 300 psi for general services (ANSI 150, except steam). Carbon-steel components are UL/ULC-listed and FM-approved for 175-psi fire-protection services; other listings include SBCCI PST and ESI, BOCA for HVAC and fire-protection systems and ICBO Evaluation Services for mechanical services. Stainless components are also UL-classified for potable water service. (Victaulic) Circle 34
