PIPE COUPLINGS

The concept of the Hydrocore™ Coupling is built upon a simple idea: eliminate the need for welding by fastening the coupling into pre-machined pipe grooves. The coupling also comes fully assembled with no loose parts and ready for use. Simply wrap the coupling around the pipe ends and tighten it shut. The installation is done. There is no other pipe connection technique that is assembled as easily and quickly as the Hydrocore™ Coupling. Not only is there a significant saving in time, labour, skill and capital in the installation process, but the Hydrocore™ Coupling is also far lighter then the traditional flange thus reducing the purchasing cost to a fraction of its out dated predecessor.

THERCOM COUPLINGS

The Thercom Coupling is a tailor-made coupling that enables the joining of pipes in a vertical shaft, which offers many advantages of which a few are listed below.

  • Occupies small shaft space.

  • Individual support of each pipe in the shaft.

  • The coupling is a natural expansion joint.

  • Low cost compared to flanges.

  • Integrates the pipe support into the coupling structure.

  • No bolting or welding is required for the pipe joining.

  • Quick and easy handling of pipes in the shaft.

  • Seals are not affected by water hammer occurrence.

U-CONES AND HUBS

With thousands of Hydrocore™ U-Cone tapered pipe couplings installed throughout mines in Southern Africa, the Hydrocore™ U-Cone tapered pipe coupling is a tried and tested alternative to flange coupling.

The Hydrocore™ U-Cone tapered pipe coupling is an alternative to flange couplings for any horizontal or inclined pipeline. The advantages of the U-Cone couplings are:

  • Occupies small space

  • Low cost compared to flanges

  • Quick and easy handling of pipes in the shaft

  • Seals are not affected by water hammer occurrence
