Victaulic, a leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe-joining systems, has announced the availability of its grooved solution for copper systems in the UK.
The Victaulic copper connection system complies with EN1057 half hard copper tubing sizes DN50 to DN150 (2-6”) and can withstand pressures up to 2450kPa/355psi depending on the type and size of copper tubing.
The product line consists of WRAS-approved Style 606 rigid coupling with grade “EW” EPDM gasket for joining copper tubing and a range of full-flow, standard radius wrought copper fittings supplied with grooves.
“Victaulic is pleased to offer our customers in the UK a faster and more efficient solution for joining copper tubing,’’ said Ian Lawless, vice president for the UK. “We are committed to providing innovative solutions that lead to dramatic gains in productivity, and the copper connection system is a result of that commitment.”
The Victaulic copper connection system was designed for HVAC and plumbing applications and installs twice as fast as alternative joining methods, reducing rework on systems by between 10 per cent and 15 per cent when compared with brazed or soldered systems. This flame-free joining method also enhances on-site safety by eliminating the toxic fumes associated with brazing or soldering.
The Style 606 Rigid Coupling provides a union at every joint for fast assembly and disassembly for any on-site rework and maintenance required.
