Designed for Both Water & Gas Applications
UltraGrip products are designed to offer a solution to joining plain-ended pipes and contain an end load resistant mechanism, that grips and seals onto a variety of pipe materials including cast iron, ductile iron, steel, PVC* and PE*.
One of the key components of Next Generation UltraGrip is the progressive gripping mechanism, which increases its end load restraint capabilities as the internal pressure in the pipe increases. One gripper system suits all recommended pipe materials. In addition, the grippers are removable allowing UltraGrip to be converted to a flexible product to allow for axial movement. The gripper and seal sub-assembly can accommodate up to 44mm pipe outside diameter variation depending on nominal size.
In fact, Viking Johnson can offer, within its range, twoalternative solutions for connecting PE and iron pipesacross a wide range of sizes. You can choose between the UltraGrip range of couplings and adaptors or the UltraGripPecatadaptor, which contains a factory fitted and tested, transition joint connecting the two materials.
Ease of Installation
On site, the Next Generation UltraGrip is easy to install. The product is pre-assembled to allow for quick positioning over top and bottom tolerance pipe with reversible captive bolts requiring only a single spanner for tightening. An ideal product to choose when dealing with tricky site conditions such as confined spaces.
*Please note PVC & PE pipe materials require the use of a close fit stainless steel liner
