Victaulic has extended its line of patented Advanced Groove System (AGS) couplings for faster and easier installation of large-diameter piping systems. Featuring rigid and flexible couplings for pipe up to 60 inches in diameter, AGS technology is ideal for water industry applications such as pipelines, including buried applications, and full mechanical plant piping. 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 housing segments to achieve the same results. Victaulic is the only manufacturer to offer a two-piece housing for couplings in this size range.
