Victaulic’s line of patented Advanced Groove System couplings, fittings and accessories, originally available for 14” to 24” pipe, has been expanded to a line of large-diameter pipe couplings and fittings for systems up to 60” diameter. AGS couplings feature two-piece housing segments and offer unprecedented speed of assembly over couplings featuring multi-segment housings. The couplings easily assemble in less than an hour without the added risk of fire hazards. For engineers, the couplings feature a patented wedge-shaped groove that handles higher-end loads and a higher pressure rating up to 350 psi/2400 kPa, depending on pipe size and wall thickness.
