Victaulic, the company that specializes in mechanical pipe joining solutions, has just launched the industry’s first grooved piping system designed exclusively for chlorinated polyvinyl chloride/polyvinyl chloride (CPVC/PVC) pipe. The system was specifically designed for use on Schedules 40 and 80 CPVC and PVC pipe and includes a full line of Installation-Ready™ couplings, fittings and pipe preparation tools.
The line includes the Style 357 Installation-Ready™ rigid coupling, the Style 356 Installation-Ready™ transition coupling, the Style 358 reducing coupling, Schedule 80 molded CPVC fittings and the CG1100 cut grooving tool. Available in sizes 2 – 12″/DN50 – DN300, the products are NSF compliant for potable water systems. Victaulic’s Installation-Ready™ couplings feature no loose parts that can be dropped or lost, and they’re easily installed with common hand tools. In a maintenance or retrofit situation, the couplings and fittings can be removed and reinstalled as needed, without having to cut into the CPVC pipe. The grooved solution is also unaffected by temperature, humidity, and other environmental conditions that compromise the solvent cementing procedure.
