VBSP Bolted Split Sleeve Solutions

Typically Found In Water/Wastewater Treatment And Hydroelectric Generation Applications

Victaulic VBSP (Bolted Split-Sleeve Products )are pipe joining systems / grooved couplings that join large diameter pipe using as few as three bolts & nuts versus 52 bolts and nuts for competitive 144"/3600mm sleeve-type couplings.

What are Victaulic Bolted Split-Sleeve Products?

VBSP are pipe joining systems / grooved couplings that join large diameter pipe using as few as three bolts and nuts versus 52 bolts and nuts for competitive 144"/3600mm sleeve-type couplings. Formerly known as Depend-O-Lok, VBSP ranges from 3-144”/80-3600mm for pressures up to 400psi/2570kPa for standard products. For higher pressures and/or larger sizes Victaulic VBSP couplings can be specially manufactured to meet size and pressure requirements. 

Where can VBSP Bolted Split Sleeve be used?

  • Above ground applications
  • Buried applications
  • Submerged Applications
  • Aeration and water / wasterwater lines
  • Between buildings
  • Non-restrained systems
  • Restrained systems
  • Systems requiring expansion joints
  • Inside and outside valve vaults

What materials can VBSP Bolted Split Sleeve be used on?

  • Carbon Steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Ductile iron
  • HDPE
  • PVC
  • Pre-stressed and reinforced concrete
  • Fiberglass pipe (FR/GRP)
  • Cast iron

What are the benefits of VBSP?

  • * Fewer bolts to assemble, reducing installation time by up to 70%
  • In most applications VBSP eliminates the need for an AWWA M11 harness
  • Expansion, contraction and deflection capabilities
  • Reduces handling and labor costs, increasing savings
  • Welding alternative saving time and money
  • Eliminates challenges in confined areas
  • One or two piece coupling design available to meet project requirements
  • Reduces vibration which in turn reduces noise
  • Allows faster and easer pipe access, reducing maintenance downtime up to 75%
  • Meets AWWA C227 standards
