The new Style 177 QuickVic® coupling gives contractors, engineers and owners an unmatched competitive edge, reducing installation time by half and making installations safer.
Victaulic, the world's leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, has introduced the Style 177 QuickVic® Flexible Coupling to India. An extension of Victaulic’s popular patented installation-ready product line, the new coupling installs in half the time as standard flexible grooved couplings and features the same high-performance capabilities. Installation-ready technology—with no loose parts and no requirement to disassemble before installation—gives contractors, engineers and owners a competitive edge that is unmatched in the industry.
“Victaulic is focused on providing innovative solutions that customers need to get ahead,” said Nicolas de Boisse, Victaulic regional manager in India. “Our installation-ready product line does just that—helps our customers meet and exceed their schedules, offers a safer, flame-free solution, and reduces man hours.”
The coupling is easily assembled without the need to disassemble the bolts, nuts, gasket and housings - making installation faster, easier and safer than any other solution currently available. Crews can assemble a grooved joint by inserting the new installation-ready coupling onto the pipe/fitting ends and tightening the nuts using standard hand tools or an impact gun. No loose components means a safer, cleaner and more efficient jobsite, where installers do not need to disassemble, and re-assemble couplings. The coupling’s centering bolt pad design offers metal-to-metal connection that gives a visual confirmation of proper installation.
The Style 177 QuickVic Flexible Coupling offers flexibility for expansion, contraction and deflection. It features a proprietary “EHP” gasket material for unmatched performance from -34°C to 121°C (-30°F to 250°F). The “EHP” gasket is geometrically optimized for unparalleled performance under pressure, heat, assembly, and stress relaxation.
The new coupling is suited for HVAC, utility piping, process piping and mining applications and is rated up to 6900kPa/1000psi. It is available in sizes 2", 2 1/2", 3", 4", 5", 6", 8" and 76.1mm, 139.7mm and is designed for joining standard roll-grooved and cut-grooved steel pipe.
