The company said a typical large-diameter joint which required several hours to weld could be installed in less than an hour using the product.
“With a two-piece housing and a wedge-shaped groove that delivers pressure ratings up to 2400 kilopascals, depending on the pipe size and wall thickness, Victaulic AGS couplings offer exceptional assembly speed and reliability,” the company said.
“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.”
A Victaulic spokesperson told ILN the AGS products had been trialled on a co-disposal line using extra-strong steel pipe for a coal washery in Queensland, and passed the trial with flying colours.
The AGS couplings are available in diameters of 350-1525mm.
