World-leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, Victaulic will be exhibiting their product range at the MINEX 2014 Mining Expo in Mount Isa.

Victaulic is showcasing a large range of their mining pipe joining solutions at the MINEX Mining Expo with their stand featuring specific solutions for the local mining industry and the broader Australian market.

On Thursday, May 8 at 2:00pm, Victaulic representatives will be performing live product demonstrations in the indoor presentation area. Victaulic representatives will be available at the Victaulic booth throughout the event to answer questions and share innovative solutions for the latest piping challenges.

Available for a range of mining applications and pipe materials, Victaulic’s mechanical pipe joining systems will help reduce installation time, simplify maintenance and quality control checks, and ultimately help companies deliver projects on time and within budget.

QuickVic Installation-Ready Technology

QuickVic Style 177 flexible and Style 107 rigid couplings install in half the time of standard installation couplings in four easy steps: lubricate, stab, join, and drive. Victaulic-patented Installation-Ready technology eliminates the need to disassemble the coupling before installation, removing the risk of loose parts getting misplaced on site. Style 177 flexible coupling delivers expansion, contraction and deflection capabilities to suit flexible pipe joining needs. In contrast, Style 107 rigid coupling provides joint rigidity, meeting industry standards for support and hanging requirements.

Shouldered Pipe Joining Solutions

Style SC177N is the mining industry’s first installation-ready coupling for joining standard shouldered pipes. Victaulic-patented Installation-Ready technology eliminates the need to disassemble the coupling before installation, removing the risk of loose parts getting misplaced on site. The coupling is prefabricated to permit fast installation without any field preparation, and the flexible design accommodates deflection, expansion and contraction.

Vic-Press for Schedule 10S

Vic-Press, the industry’s first ANSI Schedule 10S pipe sized press-to-connect system designed for off-the-shelf ASTM A-312 Schedule 10S stainless steel pipe, is an industrial-grade solution for quickly and reliably joining small-diameter piping systems. Vic-Press offers increased strength and durability with improved flow characteristics compared to light-wall tube systems; allows safer, more efficient pipe assembly than welding, threading and flanging; and meets or exceeds industry standards. Vic-Press requires 70 percent fewer man-hours than welding to install, and significantly reduces rework. No flame or arc is required reducing risk to workers and surroundings.

High Pressure Solutions Style 808, HP70, HP70-ES

For high-pressure systems that are typically beyond the capabilities of standard coupling designs, Victaulic has created two reliable solutions specifically designed for high-pressure applications: EndSeal (ES) couplings and fittings for pressures up to 2500psi/175000kPa or Style 808 double groove system for pressures up to 4000psi/27000kPa. Both Victaulic Style 808 double groove coupling and EndSeal couplings and fittings are specifically designed to meet the pressure demands of mining applications such as backfill, chilled water and deep-mine dewatering lines.

HDPE and PVC solutions

With a variety of HDPE and PVC piping systems installed in mines across Australia, Victaulic delivers a range of couplings catering for both pipes. Victaulic’s plain-end coupling system is the fastest and easiest method for joining HDPE and PVC pipes. With no pipe-end preparation necessary and half as many installation steps, couplings offer a much faster joining method than the heat-fusion process. Victaulic also offers a mechanical pipe joining system, which joins HDPE pipes to PVC pipes.

Victaulic will have a team of representatives available at the MINEX show in Mount Isa May 7 – 8, 2014 on Stand #42.
