United Pipeline Systems offers the flanged spool connector for the PreFIT™ Tite Liner® system. This connection is widely used in the industry and is able to achieve up to the ANSI 2500# rating. The flanged connection creates a seal between the two adjacent thermoplastic stubends. A steel spacer ring is utilized to ensure joint stability and proper compression. PreFIT™ flanged spools are available in sizes from 3 inches to 20 inches and is most common steel wall thicknesses. A special Slurry Flange™ connection is available for abrasive applications.
United Pipeline Systems offers two coupled spool connectors for the PreFIT™ Tite Liner® system. These couplings are a quick and easy way to seal the system to the intended operating pressure of the line. The grooved coupler connects into grooves on the exterior of the pipe surface. Once bolted in place, the rubber gasket pushes against the pipe surface and seals the connection. The grooved style coupler is rated up to 1,000 psi. United offers a welded ring coupler for pressures up to 3,000 psi. PreFIT™ Tite Liner® coupled spools are available in sizes from 3 inches to 8 inches and in Sch40 and Sch80 wall thicknesses.
United is in the final stages of development on a first of its kind mechanical interference fit coupler system for our PreFIT™ thermoplastic lined pipe spools. The system will use standard PreFIT™ TiteLiner® spools in combination with an engineered mechanical interference coupler sleeve. United’s internally designed hydraulic assembly machine will press the spool ends into the coupler sleeve under highly compressive forces resulting in a fully pressure rated joint and continuous internal corrosion protection. The system will enable increased construction speed and flexibility compared to welded pipeline construction and subsequent field installation of the internal liner.
