Victaulic has developed the world’s first grooved piping system for saturated steam. Designed for use on commercial and industrial steam applications, the system features the Style 870 rigid coupling, a full line of fittings, a gate valve and a grooving tool to process the Victaulic proprietary OGS-200 groove profile. The Victaulic grooved steam system eliminates the need to weld steam piping, and can work for applications with pressures up to 1379 kPa and temperatures up to 198°C. Thanks to their innovative grooved system, Victaulic steam couplings and fittings make installation and maintenance easier, shorten construction schedules, reduce downtime and maintain safer, more productive worksites.
Joining steam piping with grooved couplings enables faster, easier installation than welding, threading and flanging. During installation, pipe is simply joined by positioning the coupling seal and housing segments on the pipe ends and tightening the bolts and nuts to the specified torque requirement. Installation is completed up to five times faster than other joining methods.
