The unique pressure sealing system offers a simple and reliable solution for connecting polyethylene and PVC pipe. Adding to that, an enhanced gripping mechanism provides end load restraint which resists pipe pull out. No special tools or skills are needed for making effortless installation at a much faster time than others. From the very beginning to the end, the AquaFast series offers benefits for the installer. The fittings are assembled completely and there is no requirement for chamfer pipe ends nor the use of a support liner on PE or thin-walled PVC pipe. It is completely suitable for all types of weather conditions and there is no requirement for shelter so it is ideal for on the spot repairing. The enhanced AquaFast design offers precise control over the activation of the gripper for ensuring improved functionality while undertaking a repair, even in harsh trench conditions without any requirement of dismantling on the coiled or oval pipe. This can also be used in submerged or wet applications.
As there are only a few bolts which need to be fastened, only two per fitting up to 125mm and minimum bolt tightening which uses a standard spanner, the installation is again simplified by the easy alignment of holes of the bolt and a positive stop during the tightening of the bolt that ensures optimum assembly every time. The inhibits over-tightening stops by removing the requirement for a torque wrench because of the metal to metal positive. The coupling is available from 63mm to 315mm OD. They have been designed for working on PE80 / PE100 PE Pipe SDR 11, 17 & 17.6 without a support liner and can also be used for connecting metric PVC pipe.
