Repico® pipe couplings and repair couplings
Repico® is our latest addition to the extensive product range of pipe couplings and repair clamps. AVK’s Repico® product program consists of stainless steel pipe couplings and repair couplings for pipe diameters from DN 15 up to DN 2000. The Repico® range offers a quick and simple connection solution for all pipes with possibility of angular deflection and easy handling due to the compact and light weight design. The Repico® products can be used within the markets: industry, shipbuilding, gas, sewage, water and firefighting.
Pipe coupling or repair coupling?
The main difference of a Repico® repair clamp compared to a Repico® coupling is that the rubber seal is not one piece and it has no grip rings. The split seal allows the clamp to be put around the pipe but has the same progressive sealing.
Repico® pipe couplings (or repair couplings) have several advantages over a traditional connection (repair) methode:
- A Repico® coupling takes only minutes to install and requires hardly any preparation. Think of how much this will save you.
Think of initial material cost, labour cost and being able to finish installation much quicker.
- As the installation only requires a torque wrench there is no fire or explosion risk during installation. Less precautions and permits are required which shortens installation times.
- A Repico® coupling is smaller than a flange. You require less storage space, less transportation capacity, less space to install the pipe or get more pipes close together in a smaller space.
- Due to soft sealing materials the Repico® coupling will absorb vibrations, noise and will reduce fatigue fractures in the pipe system. This results in more comfort and less future repairs.
