Victaulic, the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, announced the extension of its line of patented Advanced Groove System (AGS) couplings for faster and easier installation of large-diameter piping systems. The line extension means Victaulic can offer rigid and flexible couplings with the AGS technology for pipe sizes up to 60? (1,525 mm) in diameter for industrial process, utility, water and wastewater applications.
A typical large-diameter joint that requires several hours to weld can be installed easily in less than an hour using Victaulic AGS couplings. With a two-piece housing and a wedge-shaped groove that delivers pressure ratings up to 350 psi (2,400 kPa), depending on the pipe size and wall thickness, Victaulic AGS couplings offer exceptional assembly speed and reliability. Until now, joining methods for larger size piping systems required multiple housings to achieve the same results. Victaulic is the only manufacturer to offer a two-piece housing for couplings in this size range.
