Flexible couplings for grooved piping systems are intended to accommodate controlled movement at the joint. The pipe and fittings that are connected with a flexible coupling are allowed to expand, contract or deflect from the center line within limits established by the coupling interface with the pipe. The type of pipe, wall thickness, pressure, hanging and laying requirements, as well as the type of groove selected all contribute to the amount of movement. After the pipe ends are grooved, a rubber gasket that is suitable for the specific system is stretched over the pipe ends. The coupling segments are then placed over the gasket and the nuts and bolts are fastened, resulting in a restrained and leak free joint. Couplings and fittings are cast of ductile iron meeting ASTM A536 Grade 65-45-12 (tensile- yield- elongation).
The heavy duty provides added strength for high pressure applications.
