Advanced Groove System (AGS) - Pipe Flanging or Welding Alternative

AGS-Logo

The fastest and most reliable mechanical pipe joining system for pipe 14’’ and above, giving contractors the speed they want and engineers the performance they need.

  • No flames or fumes
  • Superior seismic-shock resistance
  • Accommodates for piping system movement
  • A union at every joint
  • Easiest method for accommodating differential settlement
  • Fully self-restrained joint, eliminating the need for secondary devices such as harnesses
  • Faster, safer and easier installation reduces cost
