gripring pipe restraint
Full circumferential pipe restraint spreads the restraining forces more evenly than those using radial bolts or pads. The GripRing uses a standard mechanical joint gasket and t-bolts. There are no radial bolts for the installer to forget to tighten. When the t-bolts on the gland are tightened, the GripRing restraint is engaged. The GripRing may be used at the full rated capacity of the pipe, including an allowance for pressure surges. The 'gap' in each GripRing is designed to completely close before a pipe can be excessively stressed.
Manufactured in the USA.
USE Provides full circumferential restraint of mechanical joints.
