Self-Aligning Pipe and Tube Couplings

July 11, 2013

Tuf-Lok ring grip pipe and tube couplings are heavy-duty self-aligning couplings for either high pressure, to 150 psig, or full vacuum rated applications. Utilized in all industries where pipe and tube ends need to be connected, they are ideal for pneumatic conveying systems. These couplings install quickly and easily, reducing installation costs. They are available in 1-in. through 10-in. pipe sizes and are made for use on plain end pipe or tube, regardless of pipe or tube wall thickness. Other features include self-grounding, vibration resistant, externally leakproof, with a high end pull for difficult applications. No machining or grooving is required to maintain pipe or tube integrity. Every coupling becomes a union, providing easy, low-cost maintenance when piping or tubing components need replacement. Various gasket materials are available to meet special design conditions, such as food grade, higher temperatures or special chemical resistant applications.
