Victaulic shows latest pipe joining solutions at POWER-GEN Europe

Victaulic, the world leader in mechanical pipe-joining systems, will showcase its latest grooved pipe couplings, valves and fittings at POWER-GEN Europe 2012.

Amongst the products on display will be the revolutionary Victaulic installation-ready range of flexible and rigid couplings, which is up to 10 times faster to install than other joining methods, and Vic-Press™, the industry’s first ANSI Schedule 10S pipe sized press-to-connect system designed for off-the-shelf ASTM A-312 Schedule 10S stainless steel pipe. Vic-Press provides an industrial-grade solution for quickly and reliably joining 15-50mm (½-2") piping systems.

Victaulic systems are ideally suited to the power industry for applications including chemical feed lines, waste water systems, compressed air, fire protection and cooling water. They offer many unique safety features and compressed schedule advantages.

Victaulic will be offering hands-on assembly experience to demonstrate just how simple it is to put together its grooved couplings and fittings.

Bill Lowar, power division manager, comments: “The Victaulic grooved piping system is the ideal choice for compressed schedules in the power industry because it offers the combined advantages of design versatility, highly reliable operation and fast installation, and works equally well with a variety of piping materials, including carbon and stainless steel, ductile iron and HDPE piping.”

Advanced Grooved System (AGS), featuring a patented two-piece housing and a wedge-shaped groove that delivers pressure ratings up to 350 psi/2400 kPa and unprecedented assembly speed and reliability. Style 152A Expansion Joint Coupling (250-760mm / 10-30"), suitable for pulverized coal and limestone with 4 degrees of deflection capability, along with expansion and contraction. The ease and speed of maintenance of the Style 152A leads to less downtime and increased productivity during costly scheduled plant outages.Vic 300 MasterSeal Butterfly Valve, with its strikingly innovative design of a unique offset disc and two-piece stem. The disc design increases flow and reduces operating torque up to 35%, and provides a 360º bubble-tight seal at fully rated pressure, 300 psi, in either direction.Victaulic Style 220 / Style 221 Flue Gas Nozzle Couplings, which provide a mechanical joint for spray nozzles in either alloy or FRP respectively, for use on scrubbers. Lightweight, single-bolt assembly makes installation easier and faster than traditional flanged connections, eliminates over-tightening and "cracking" of nozzles, and permits full 360° nozzle orientation.Victaulic Vic-Press™ Sch. 10S system for Type 304 and 316 stainless steel pipe provides a fast, easy, clean and reliable means for joining

15-50mm (½-2") standard ASTM A-312 schedule 10S stainless steel pipe.

Victaulic installation ready range of flexible and rigid couplings that are up to 10 times faster to install than other joining methods and are available in sizes from 50-200 mm (2-8”).
