Victaulic has announced the launch of its QuickVic SD Installation-Ready System, a plain end pipe joining technology designed for use on carbon steel HVAC systems sized 2"/DN50 and down.
The Victaulic QuickVic SD System is the most economical and efficient pipe joining solution for small diameter commercial and industrial HVAC applications.
The product line offers a significant total installed cost savings when compared to current pipe materials and installation methods used, including copper press or sweat and carbon steel press or thread.
"As preferences for piping materials evolve, Victaulic is committed to offering its customers innovative solutions that reduce project costs, improve durability, and make installation and maintenance more efficient," said Scott Stewart, product manager at Victaulic.
"The QuickVic SD System is our latest proof point of that commitment, offering our first mechanical pipe joining solution for HVAC customers making, or that have made, the transition to carbon steel piping for two inches in diameter and smaller."
Utilizing Victaulic's new QuickVic SD system on small diameter carbon steel systems eliminates a range of problems.
The couplings and fittings are easily installed with common hand tools and feature no loose parts that can be dropped or lost. In a maintenance or retrofit situation, the joints can be disassembled and reinstalled as needed, without having to cut out and remove excess piping.
Stewart said the system also provides multiple visual inspection features, including bolt pad-to-bolt pad verification, a retainer inspection window, and knurled insertion depth markings on the pipe, to help ensure correct assembly throughout the installation process.
"Contractors can now realize the speed of press systems along with the material savings of carbon steel pipe," he said.
