World-leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, Victaulic will exhibit its latest line of innovative pipe joining solutions for mines at two tradeshows in May.

Visitors to Paste 2015 and MINEX 2015 can see a revolutionary product for the mining industry, the new Victaulic Style 905 coupling for joining HDPE pipes. Victaulic will also showcase a wide range of innovative products that overcome the most challenging aspects of backfill piping applications, including high pressures and abrasive mediums, while providing faster, easier installations and reduced maintenance time.

To be officially launched in Australia later this year, Style 905 is the latest addition to the Victaulic Installation-Ready product line, saving time, reducing labour and increasing efficiency and safety. The new Refuse-to-Fuse Victaulic Style 905 coupling is specifically designed to quickly join 2"-6" HDPE pipes without any need for fusing. Ideal for plain end HDPE pipes from SDR 7 to 17, Style 905 couplings can be installed on new, used or dirty pipes, faster and more consistently using simple tools.

David Sharkey, Vice President Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia comments that the new Style 905 presents a fast and simple coupling solution, which is safe to install and delivers solid performance. The Style 905 is rated to the pressure rating of the HDPE pipe of the system and has no loose parts to drop or cause injury.

Victaulic will be exhibiting several products at the two exhibitions in May. These include the Series 725 diverter valves designed specifically for paste backfill lines and improving the efficiency of backfill operations while providing durable, reliable service; solutions for high-pressure systems including Victaulic ES couplings and Style 809 high-pressure couplings for ring systems; Extended Life (XL) fittings and couplings; and 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.

Victaulic personnel will be present at Paste 2015 and MINEX 2015 to assist with product enquiries and guide with planning.

Victaulic will be showcasing their products at Paste 2015 from 5-7 May at Booth 11; and at MINEX 2015 from 14-16 May at Booth 85.
