The line gives contractors, engineers and owners an unmatched competitive edge, cutting installation time in half and making installations safer.
ORLANDO - AHR Expo (Booth #3726) - Victaulic, the world's leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, offers the patented installation-ready product line giving contractors, engineers and owners an unmatched competitive edge, cutting piping system installation time in half and allowing more consistent installations for increased reliability.
Since being introduced, the installation-ready product line has been making piping system installations quicker and safer. The line includes four distinct couplings designed to perform on a variety of piping systems: the Style 009H FireLock® EZ rigid coupling for fire protection applications, the Style 607 QuickVic rigid coupling for copper potable water systems, and the Style 177 QuickVic flexible coupling and Style 107H QuickVic rigid coupling for use on HVAC, mining and utility and process piping systems.
Installation-ready technology is designed to address the industry's need to compress project schedules and remain competitive across applications such as fire protection, HVAC, mining, and plant and process piping. Installation-ready technology is the fastest and safest pipe-joining method currently available. The installation-ready coupling installs up to ten times faster than other pipe joining methods such as welding, brazing, soldering or flanging.
The single-unit design allows crews to assemble an installation-ready coupling by simply inserting it onto the grooved end of a pipe, fitting, valve or any other accessory, and tightening the nuts with standard hand tools or an impact wrench. There is no flame, noxious fumes or loose parts that can be lost or dropped, reducing material handling and thereby reducing risk of injury. No loose components translates to a safer, cleaner and more efficient jobsite.
Installation-ready couplings require fewer steps to install, resulting in consistently faster pipe joints, which allows contractors to optimize crew size and better manage their labor risk.
