Victaulic, the world's leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, will showcase its patented installation-ready, Advanced Groove System (AGS) and Vic Press product lines at the ACREX trade fair at the Bombay Exhibition Center, Mumbai. These product lines give contractors, engineers and owners an unmatched competitive edge, cutting piping system installation time and making installations safer.
Installation-ready technology is designed to address the industry’s need to compress project schedules and remain competitive. It 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 Victaulic patented Advanced Groove System (AGS) is the strongest and most dependable mechanical piping joining system for 350-1525mm/14-60” size piping systems. With a two-piece housing and a wedge-shaped groove that delivers pressure ratings up to 2,400 kPa/350 psi, Victaulic AGS couplings offer exceptional assembly speed and reliability.
In addition to simplified and faster installation, Victaulic couplings, fittings and valves are lighter in weight yet with higher integral strength and require less space than traditional products, minimizing the plant room footprint while maximizing HVAC system performance.
Finally, Vic-Press, the industry’s first ANSI Schedule 10S pipe sized press-to-connect system designed for off-the-shelf ASTM A-312 Schedule 10S stainless steel pipe, is an industrial-grade solution for quickly and reliably joining small-diameter piping systems. Every Vic-Press product is supplied pre-lubricated, in a closed bag to maintain integrity throughout shipping and storage, ensuring seals are clean right up until installation.
Visitors stopping by the Victaulic Stand P26 in Area 24 can see a pump set-up with Victaulic products installed which demonstrates these benefits.
“The Victaulic grooved system works equally well with a variety of piping materials, including carbon and stainless steel, and with a wide range of pipe sizes,” says Pankaj Soni, Victaulic Country Manager India. “This makes it the ideal choice to compress schedules in the HVAC industry where it offers the combined advantages of design versatility, highly reliable operation, and fast installation.”
