FT Pipeline Systems can provide a wide range of different pipe joints in accordance with the requirements of a pipe system. Pipe jointing technology has evolved significantly over the past few decades, in accordance with the demands placed on pipe networks located in different situations and scenarios, for example subaqueous pipes or aggressive ground conditions.
FT Pipeline Systems can provide the following pipe joints:
Spigot & Socket Tyton Joint
An ideal pipe joint for any potable water of sewage pipeline, particularly where the joints must be resistant to corrosion in aggressive ground conditions.
Spigot & Socket Tyton Anchor Joint
A variation of the normal Tyton pipe joint, whereby the joint is further secured with an anchor for additional protection.
Spigot & Socket DKM Joint
Another variation of the Spigot and Socket pipe joint, which is a great solution for use on high-pressure mains without any thrust blocks.
Butt Weld Joint
Great for use with potable water and sewage sludge, welded pipe joints mean that there is no risk of leaks or corrosion.
Socket Weld Joint
Combining the socket and welded pipe provides all of the benefits of the former, with the leak and corrosion benefits of the latter.
E Joint – Insulating Joint
Spigot and socket pipe joints are commonly used for low and medium pressure steel pipelines but for potable water systems where an internal epoxy coating is required, the welding process can sometimes damage the internal lining of the pipes. The FT E Joint is a great solution to this issue because it includes an air pocket, which reduces the heat transfer to the internal surface significantly, reducing the risk of damage to the lining.
The flanged pipe joint design means that pipes are secured by external screws, providing additional joint support for the transportation of substances at high pressure.
FT Pipeline Systems also provides a range of Victaulic mechanical pipe joints, which are suitable for a range of different scenarios depending on the type of gasket and housing needed for each joint.
