Victaulic , a world-leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, has introduced a new grooved solution for copper systems in Australia.
The product line consists of WaterMark approved Style 606-AS rigid couplings for joining copper tubing and a range of full flow, standard radius wrought copper fittings supplied with grooves.
Ideal for HVAC and potable water applications, the Victaulic copper connection system is compliant with Australian Standard (AS-1432) copper tubing sizes DN50 – DN200 (2 – 8”) Types A, B and D, and can withstand pressures of up to 2450kPa/355psi depending on the type and size of copper tubing.
Describing the new system as a faster and more efficient solution for joining copper tubing, David Sharkey, Vice President Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia underlined Victaulic’s commitment to providing innovative solutions that lead to dramatic gains in productivity.
The Victaulic copper connection system installs twice as fast as alternative joining methods, reducing rework on systems by 10-15% when compared to brazed or soldered systems.
The system also uses a proven pressure-responsive synthetic rubber gasket to seal on the outside diameter of the tubing, requiring no heat. This cold formed mechanical joint reduces the on-site safety risks of fumes, flames, and related costs associated with fire hazards.
The Style 606-AS provides a union at every joint for fast assembly and disassembly for any on-site rework and maintenance required.
