Discover how Victaulic can impact your next HVAC project
Visitors to the Frigair 2012 trade fair in Johannesburg can discover how to save time and money and ensure quality on HVAC installations by coming to the Victaulic stand H21
Victaulic, the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe-joining systems, is exhibiting its wide range of products designed to give quick, easy and efficient flame-free installations.
On show will be a selection of rigid and flexible couplings, fittings and valves to meet a variety of project needs. They include the Victaulic patented installation-ready range of couplings, which fit directly onto the grooved pipe with no need to disassemble and re-assemble, and Victaulic Advanced Groove System (AGS) couplings for larger-diameter pipe connections.
Installation-ready technology is designed to address the industry’s need to compress project schedules and remain competitive. It is the fastest and safest pipe-joining method currently available on the market, since it doesn’t require disassembling prior to installation and thus arrives at the jobsite ready to install. This unique coupling design results in an installation that is up to ten times faster than other pipe- joining methods such as welding, brazing, soldering or flanging.
With a two-piece housing and a wedge-shaped groove that delivers pressure ratings up to 2,400 kPa, Victaulic AGS couplings are the strongest and most dependable mechanical pipe- joining method for 350-1525mm size piping systems.
In addition to simplified and faster installation, Victaulic couplings, fittings and valves offer further advantages, making them the ideal choice for HVAC contractors and consultants. Lighter in weight, yet with higher integral strength, they require less space than traditional products, minimizing the mechanical room footprint while maximizing system performance. The use of flexible couplings around pumps also provides noise and vibration attenuation for the life of the system. They eliminate rubber bellows which are costly to install and need replacing at ten-year intervals on average.
Visitors stopping by the Victaulic stand H21 can see a pump set-up with Victaulic products installed which demonstrates these benefits. They will also witness on-site grooving demonstrations utilizing Victaulic roll-grooving tools to prepare pipework for joining.
