Direct groove two-piece coupling for large-diameter piping systems

05 January 2010

Victaulic has extended its line of patented Advanced Groove System (AGS) for faster and easier installation of large-diameter piping systems. Victaulic now offers rigid and flexible couplings with the AGS technology for pipe sizes up to 60" (1525mm) in diameter for HVAC, mining, water and wastewater and industrial applications.

A typical large-diameter joint that requires several hours to weld can be installed easily in less than an hour using Victaulic AGS couplings. With a two-piece housing and a wedge-shaped groove that delivers pressure ratings up to 350 psi/2,400 kPa, depending on the pipe size and wall thickness, Victaulic AGS couplings offer exceptional assembly speed and reliability. Until now, joining methods for larger-size piping systems required multiple housings to achieve the same results. Victaulic is the only manufacturer to offer a two-piece housing for couplings in this size range.

The larger-size AGS coupling housings feature lifting lugs for added convenience when lifting individual housings. AGS couplings also provide a union at every joint for easy access to the piping system for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and system retrofits. In addition, the coupling provides visual confirmation of proper assembly—assembly is complete when housings are metal-to-metal and torque requirements have been met—an added benefit that helps to ensure proper assembly.
