Understanding Dresser Couplings

2016/12/9 14:34:01      Click£º

If you are looking to quickly and reliably connect two pipes in your system, the coupling may be your solution. Couplings are used to quickly connect two even pipes with a tight, durable seal and a flexible joint. This product provides a long lasting solution that reduces maintenance costs with its ability to take on wear and production for most applications.

The dresser coupling consists of one cylindrical middle ring, two follower rings, two resilient gaskets made up of a special Dresser compound and a set of steel track head bolts. These couplings feature an epoxy coating which offers optimal protection against corrosive soil or aggressive water conditions. This product is made for handling brine, brackish water, most acids, alkalies, oil, chemical particulates and gases.

The Benefits of Dresser Couplings

Dresser couplings are fast and easy to install with any size pipe or tubing in a variety of materials. In order to virtually cover mostly application including high temperature and abrasion, Dresser carries sizes that can range from DN65 to DN3200 commonly. Their temperature range suits environments from -20˚C to +648˚C with pressure ratings up to 40bar. Dresser couplings are available in rugged welded steel construction, stainless steel, carbon steel, or alloys for special applications depending on your needs. Additionally, special elastomer formulations can be provided to customers needing to follow a specific fluid process or application requirements.

The expansion dosage of dresser couplings usually differ from their diameters. At least, it could accommodate up to 30mm longitudinal pipe movement which is enough for movement resulting from a 120 degree temperature variation in a 40-foot length of steel pipe. Given that your pipe is not buried, there should be enough anchorage to prevent excessive accumulation of movement.

These types of couplings are used for joining plain end cast iron pipe and are impressively proved by years of service on all types of pipes. This type of Dresser coupling provides a flexible, leak-proof connection that will last for the lifetime of your pipe. This product eliminates costly threading, beveling, exact pipe fitting or alignment. If you require a Dresser coupling that is not available on our website, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
