The company Victaulic
Victaulic is a developer and producer of mechanical pipe joining systems. Victaulic provides products for Fire Protection, Data Centers, Shipbuilding, Commercial Buildings, Mining, BioFuels, and Industrial Manufacturing.
Victaulic was founded in 1925 in New York City. The company is currently headquartered in Easton, Pennsylvania, and employs more than 6,500 people worldwide. Victaulic main products are:
- “Victaulic Couplings” used to join mechanical pipes together. The company produces a variety of these couplings and has done so since it was founded.
- The “Victaulic Vortex” Fire Suppression System, a product placed at critical locations like data centers. It emits a mix of water and nitrogen from a single source that simultaneously cools the affected area and extinguishes the fire. The Vortex is the only Fire Suppression system approved for use in areas containing flammable liquids & hazardous machinery.
- Victaulic Sprinker Heads / Sprinkler Systems, Valves / Groove Fittings, and Expansion Joints.
A development in which a groove is cut around each end of pipe instead of the usual threads; two ends of pipe are then lined up and a rubber ring is fitted around the joint; two semicircular bands, forming a sleeve, are placed around the ring and are drawn together with two bolts, which have a ridge on both edges to fit into the groove of the pipe; as the bolts are tightened, the rubber ring is compressed, making a watertight joint, while the ridges fitting in the grooves make it strong mechanically.
The Victaulic grooved-piping method accommodates most piping materials, including lightwall, standard and extra-heavy steel, stainless, aluminum, PVC and other plastics, as well as high-density polyethylene.
In addition, products for copper tubing (CTS) and ductile iron (AWWA) for water supply, as well as underground and waste-treatment process piping are available. Victaulic products are manufactured to accommodate piping standards including ASME, DIN, JIS, CIS, AS, and BS.
