PE & Barrier Pipe Solutions
Designed & Engineered to Simplify Polyethylene & PVC Pipe Connections
AquaFast’s unique pressure sealing system offers a simple and reliable solution to connecting polyethylene & PVC pipe. In addition, an enhanced gripping mechanism offers end load restraint, resisting pipe pull out. No special skills or tools are required making installation effortless and quicker than other systems.
From start to finish, AquaFast offers benefits to the installer. The fittings come fully assembled; no need to chamfer pipe ends nor use a support liner on PE or thin walled PVC pipe. It can be installed in all weather conditions, there is no need for shelters so it is ideal for on-the spot repairs. The enhanced AquaFast design offers precise control over activation of the grippers ensuring improved functionality while undertaking a repair, even in harsh trench conditions, with no need to dismantle on oval or coiled pipe. In fact it can also be used in wet or submerged applications.
With fewer bolts to fasten – only two per fitting up to 125mm – and minimum bolt tightening using a standard spanner, the installation is further simplified by the easy alignment of bolt holes and a positive stop during bolt tightening ensuring optimum assembly every time. This metal-to-metal positive stop inhibits over tightening, removing the need for a torque wrench.
AquaFast couplings & flange adaptors are available from 63mm to 315mm OD. They are designed to work on PE80 / PE100 PE Pipe SDR 11, 17 & 17.6 without a support liner and can also be used to connect metric PVC pipe so AquaFast is ideal for PE/PVC transitional connections.
A High Performance Polyethylene Jointing System
The AquaGrip range was developed in response to demand for a simple, high performance end load restraint (Type 1) mechanical method of joining polyethylene pipe. AquaGrip products are designed to support and grip PE pipe to prevent pipe collapse and pullout.
Easy & Safe to Fit
The range requires no special skills or complicated tools to fit, a suitably calibrated torque wrench is the only specialist tool required. The ability to rotate the flange bolt holes and the lightweight, compact design provide easier handling and quicker installation.
Another key benefit of the AquaGrip range is 'all-weather installation'. It can be installed under wet conditions without shelters, and even under water. It is ideal for on-the-spot repairs- no need for fusion jointing equipment when unexpected problems arise!
Once fitted the product range offers axial restraint and is designed and tested to meet the full Type 1 performance requirements of WIS 4-24-01 in all sizes up to 450mm. Full Type 2 performance is achieved on larger sizes. It is designed to equal or exceed the pressure capabilities of MDPE (PE80) and HDPE (PE100) pipe and has total corrosion protection with Rilsan Nylon coated body and clamp bands.
