Lined and Coated Piping Systems
Regardless of the abrasive media traveling through your piping system Victaulic offers a variety of solutions that are tailored to meet your reqiurements. Unlike welding and flanging that are costly and difficult to install Victaulic pipe joining systems install in less than half the time while maintaining the integrity of the abrasive lining. Compatible with rubber, urethane, ceramic and other linings.
Cut Groove System
On piping systems using Schedule 40 or higher wall thickness a groove is cut into the outside diameter of the pipe. The result is a reliable joint that reduces installation and downtime during maintenance by up to 66 percent. No heat is required and the inner surface of the pipe remains smooth maintaining the integrity of the lining. Cut groove systems when used with flexible couplings allow for expansion, contraction and deflection where needed. Available for systems up to 42"/1050 mm.
Where maintaining the full wall thickness of the system is required ring systems are commonly found. A ring with a groove or shoulder is attached to the outside diameter of the pipe and the coupling mounts over the ring to complete the joint. Ring systems are available with Original Groove (OGS) or Advanced Groove (AGS) ring designs. Available for use on systems up to 90"/2250mm.
For shouldered pipe systems Victaulic offers a line of couplings, fittings and valves. Valves and fittings are provided with shouldered ends, while the coupling system features installation-ready shouldered couplings from 2 - 8"/50 - 200 mm piping and standard couplings for 10 and 12"/250 and 300 mm sizes. Galvanized finishes on the coupling and fittings ensure additional protection against corrosive environments.
Plain End System
HDPE piping systems used for coal dust require frequent maintenance and replacement due to the highly abrasive nature of the media. When maintenance is required there is no union in the system. Downtime is costly and time consuming. With Victaulic HDPE products simply cut and join the pipe ends. Victaulic couplings for HDPE systems are rated to a higher working pressure than the pipe and provide a union at every joint. Available in sizes up to 20"/500 mm.
For piping systems exposed to internally corrosive media or externally corrosive environments Victaulic solutions are designed to increase system life, add to design versatility and reduce downtime where maintenance is required.
Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coated System
For fustion bonded epoxy systems grooved piping provides holiday-free service. Fusion bonded epoxy systems can be compromised when exposed to the heat needed to join welded systems. Grooving is a cold forming process thereby maintaing the integrity of the lining while providing a union at every joint.
Flexible and rigid couplings, fittings and accessories are all available with a galvanized finish to protect against corrosive environments. Galvanized Victaulic grooved systems eliminate all the challenges and health hazards associated with welding galvanized systems.
Stainless Steel System
A wide range of stainless steel systems can be joined using the Victaulic grooved and Vic- Press piping systems. For small diameter Type 304 and 316 stainless piping Vic-Press is the first systems that is compatible with standard Schedule 10S stainless steel pipe. For larger diameter Type 304 and Type 316 stainless steel as well as duplex and super duplex systems Victaulic offers a variety of pipe joining solutions.
