- Assembled as one and inseparable during transport, handling, installation and maintenance.
- Clamping pipes together by a single bolt.
- Coupling’s symmetrical structure causes even load on the joint's components under pressure conditions.
- Can be supplied with lifting eye-bolts, to enable the easy installation of heavy clamping assembly.
The hubs create the pipes engagement when brought together by the clamps. The taper angle of 15 degrees , combined with smoothed taper surfaces, enables a powerful engagement force with minimum required bolting torque.
