Watertight seals

Trelleborg’s pipe seals operation has launched two new trenchless technology sealing solutions for high-­pressure, potable water pipe relining applications. The new seals provide a watertight seal for most types of pipe including steel, cast iron, concrete and plastic. Both are easily installed using a high-force hydraulic expansion tool and are available in multiple diameters. The L-Lock-P™ is a rubber liner end seal with stainless-steel expansion bands designed to keep the liner firmly in place. The I-Lock-P™ is a mechanical seal applied without a liner to repair sections of cracked or damaged pipe.

Flowmeter without metals in the fluid path

There are no metals in the fluid path of F-461 Series inline Variable Area Flowmeters from Blue-White, making these units well suited for use in many ultrapure applications. Constructed of tough, chemical-resistant polysulfone, F-461 flowmeters offer better resistance to high temperatures, pressures and a broad base of harsh chemicals than many plastic flowmeters on the market. The high-capacity F-461 utilizes precisely engineered ridges molded into the meter body, which guide PTFE floats. Calibration range is 1 to 35 GPM (4 to 130 LPM) and permanent direct-­reading scales are easy to read. The full-scale accuracy is +/- 2.5%.

Next-generation coupling

Krausz USA’s new wide-range HYMAX2 Coupling is the next-­generation HYMAX. Used for section replacement, the coupling connects two pipes of the same or different OD and materials, up to 1.3” range. The patented flip gasket can be easily flipped in or out to accommodate different pipe ODs. Advanced no-tear gasket technology allows for maximum installation efficiency. Fast, safe installation with only two top-facing bolts and dynamic deflection of 4° per side. Suitable for all types of pipes.
