Rigid Pipe Couplings

March 10, 2014

Victaulic Style 107 QuickVic rigid pipe couplingsVictaulic continues to advance its patented installation-ready™ line with the availability of Style 107 QuickVic® rigid pipe couplings in 10- and 12-inch sizes. The couplings reduce piping system installation time and increase safety.

The Style 107 family of couplings expedites project completion 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 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 or Grade “T” nitrile gasket.
