Supplier News

PCA and Prochem have joined forces to promote and distribute Tube-Mac Industries non welded piping systems and flushing services. The strategic alliance will see PCA promote TMI’s 37° and Retain Ring systems.

“With a 50-year history and our focus on reliability and consistency of supply, we view our forthcoming involvement with PCA with great enthusiasm” explained Peter Winter, Prochem’s national manager of sales and marketing. “We know that PCA share our strong dedication to the highest levels of integrity.”

Flanged cold work solutions offer significant value for clients in industries as diverse as oil and gas, on and off-shore mining, food and beverage, petrochemicals, and architectural services. Benefits of the cold work solutions include:

  • Leak-free, non-welded connections
  • Less installation and flushing time
  • Fast and easy installation, repair and maintenance
  • The flange systems offer cleanliness
  • No X-raying required
The standard TMI connection styles offered conform to SAE/ISO flanges, along with TMI proprietary flanges. Other flange patterns may also be available.
Depending on the pressure and flow requirements of the application in hand, there are two methods of attaching the flange to the pipe:
  • The more cost effective way is the 37° flared system which uses an internal flare to existing/new pipe
  • More suited to higher pressures and larger pipe sizes is the retain ring system which requires externally grooving existing/new pipe
TMI’s SAE/ISO flange makes assembling their systems user friendly due to the ability of swivelling the flange to alignment. The use of this type of clamp also allows installation in confined spaces due to non-cylindrical flanges and also allows attachment to existing SAE flanged hose.
“Non Welded piping solutions are becoming increasingly recognised in different industries because of their associated benefits of time and cost savings”, said Luke McInnes, Managing Director with PCA. “Working in with Prochem to deliver this leading technology through the innovative Tube-Mac range is an exciting addition to our company’s Complete Fluid Connection Services.”
