Victaulic Case Studies

SISECAM CAR GLASS FACTORY, BLUGARIA

Sisecam, a leading Turkish glass manufacturer, wanted to expand its production capabilities in Bulgaria by opening four new plants in 2016. The contractor EPC, Ozgun Insaat, recommended the use of Victaulic products. Ozgun Insaat had installed Victaulic on previous projects and was impressed by the products' installation speed, high quality material and reliability. Labor savings was also important for Sisecam, as transporting trained labor from Turkey to the project site in Bulgaria was very expensive.

With the help of 3D modeling completed by the Victaulic Construction Piping Services team, Victaulic grooved pipe joining products were installed on the heating, cooling, compressed air and domestic hot water systems.

Additionally, the unique construction of Victaulic’s grooved coupling has vibration-dampening qualities of its own and was used in the chiller plant room and the pump rooms. Utilizing the linear movement and deflection capabilities, Victaulic's flexible grooved couplings accommodated thermal expansion and contraction and avoided the use of expansion loops, thereby solving the problems of space constraints.
Victaulic’s grooved couplings are up to five times faster to install than alternative joining methods, allowing for an accelerated construction schedule. Moreover, Victaulic couplings are installed without the use of flame or fume, eliminating fire hazards.
