Pipe coupling

Victaulic introduced the Style 171 flexible composite pipe coupling. The Style 171 is an engineered composite coupling for use where corrosive conditions exist. Ideal for reverse osmosis (RO) skids in vertical and horizontal installations, the Style 171 enables quick and simple installation and provides substantial gains in productivity. The Style 171 creates a flexible pipe joint, accommodating expansion, contraction, and deflection in the piping system. Featuring Victaulic installation-ready technology, the Style 171 eases and speeds installation.


Traveling exhibit

Hanson Pressure Pipe has taken its education outreach on the road with a demonstration trailer designed to provide public works managers, engineers and contractors with a closer look at C-303 bar-wrapped concrete cylinder pipe. The trailer includes segments of the pipe, including cross-sections and various joint configurations. Accompanying Hanson representatives at conferences and one-on-one meetings, the demonstration trailer is a key tool in teaching decision-makers about the benefits bar-wrapped pipe brings.

Pipe Wrenches

Lowell Corporation manufactures wrenches designed for pipeline work. The company's "bolt-thru" sockets eliminate bolt interference, and ratchet handles are available from 8" to 60". Sockets are available in hexagon and square sizes (inch & metric). Lowell's 8C
4-IN-1 ratcheting box wrench, for example, combines four 12-point sockets in one heavy-duty reversible ratchet wrench (1-1/4" x 1-1/8" x 1-1/16" x 15/16"). Lowell also makes strap wrenches, valve wheel wrenches, torque-limiting T-handles, and valve key sockets for turning worn valve operating nuts.

Polywrap from AA Thread is a cost-effective way to protect ductile iron pipe from outside corrosion. This method of protecting pipe is very easy to install and no special training or equipment is needed. As with all protection methods, proper installation is vital to success of this product. AA Thread has several forms of Polywrap, from its linear low density pipe wrap to its cross-laminated high density pipe wrap, as well as 10 MIL cross-laminated high density Joint Wrap to protect your mechanical joints from damaging the Polywrap during installation.

Pipe cutters

Reed Rotary™ cutters cut pipe safely, easily, quickly, and at a low cost. They provide a square cut and can be used in close quarters in the ditch, underwater, in noise-free zones, overhead, in racks of pipes, and more. They cut large diameter steel, most stainless steel, and ductile and cast iron pipe. The cutter's slip-on handle is used to turn the cutter around the pipe in one direction and is also used to tighten the cutter every half revolution. With good leverage from the long handle, pipe snaps off squarely before the wheel penetrates halfway through pipe.

Socket fusion tool

McElroy has released its latest socket fusion tool for polypropylene (PP) pipe installations -- the Spider™ 125 with Universal Clamping. The unique design of the Spider 125 makes it the ideal socket fusion tool for installations using 63 mm to 125 mm PP pipe in overhead, vertical and tight work spaces. The new Universal Clamping feature allows the latest Spider 125 model to accommodate any size of pipe or coupling, eliminating the need for inserts. At 15 pounds, the Spider 125 with Universal Clamping remains a lightweight, compact device with a worm gear drive and parallel link system that brings pipes and fittings together evenly and under control.

The Smart Elbow® from HammerTek for pneumatic and slurry conveying systems virtually eliminates elbow wear, product degradation, plugging, surging, cross-contamination, noise, turbulence, and more, saving companies time and money and reducing downtime. The Smart Elbow is the only elbow on the market to convey by creating a true deflection zone. Due to its design, the Smart Elbow forms a slowly rotating, self-renewing ball of material, creating a gentle deflection zone causing material to change direction by deflection, not impact.

Utility chainsaw

The ICS Utility chainsaw has addressed operator safety with its revolutionary grinding technology that eliminates rotational kickback and offers improved operator positioning when cutting pipe. Utilized by public and private water and wastewater departments worldwide, this patented platform, exclusively from ICS, is designed to cut a variety of materials from ductile iron to plastic pipe with far less excavation. The ability to cut up to 24" pipe completely from one side radically reduces the difficulty of the job. Complete the next job safer, faster and easier with ICS Utility chain saws.

Tapping sleeve line

The Triple Tap product line from Total Piping Solutions has been extended to include line stop fittings designed to fit all commonly-used line stopping equipment. This development allows pipeline contractors to use all readily available equipment in use today. Versions with the Mechanical Joint End connection allow for elimination of the tapping valve. This unique adaptor end eliminates any alignment issues and may be used with all standard 4" to 12" MJ x MJ valves.
