EASTON, Pa. — Victaulic continues to advance its patented installation-ready line with the availability of Style 107 QuickVic rigid couplings in 10- and 12-inch sizes. The additional sizes give contractors, engineers and owners more opportunities to maximize efficiency by reducing installation time and increasing safety.
The Style 107 family of couplings expedites project construction by reducing installation steps and requiring only standard hand tools for assembly. Installation-ready technology from Victaulic features no loose parts and no need to disassemble before installation; the coupling is simply pushed onto the pipe-end as a fully assembled unit, joined by a second pipe-end and tightened. Installation is completed twice as fast as standard grooved couplings and up to ten times faster than welding and flanging, while offering the same high-performance capabilities. No flame or heat is required for installation, improving jobsite safety.
The rigid design of the coupling, which does not accommodate expansion, contraction or angular deflection, meets industry standards for support. Support and hanging requirements correspond to ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code and ASME B31.9 Building Services Piping Code.
Ideal for HVAC, utility and process piping applications, Style 107 rigid couplings are available in sizes ranging from 2 to 12 inches (50 to 300 millimeters), and join standard roll-grooved and cut-grooved steel pipe. The Style 107 family accommodates pressures ranging from full vacuum up to 750 psi (5,170 kPa), depending on pipe diameter and wall thickness. Couplings are supplied with a grade “EHP” EPDM gasket, which feature a temperature range of -30 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit (-34 to 121 degrees Celcius). Grade “T” nitrile gaskets are also available.
