HYMAX GRIP® LARGE DIAMETER 14″, 16″
HYMAX GRIP 14″ and 16” are the newest additions to Krausz’s market-leading restraint family.
The HYMAX GRIP large diameter is the first restraint product of its size with four top-facing bolts and a stab-fit, one-piece design.
Compared to similar products with multiple parts and as many as 12 bolts to tighten, the HYMAX GRIP 14″/16” makes repairs safer and faster with less time spent in the ditch.
The four top-facing bolts eliminate under digging for space to tighten bolts.The stab-fit, one-piece design allows for easier and faster installation and eliminates the possibility of losing bolts in the mud.
* The wide-range HYMAX GRIP 14″/16” restrains metal and plastic pipes, including HDPE, and replaces the need to use dedicated products to reduce inventory costs and save shelf space.
* The patented GRIP chain offers circular restraint around the pipe, unlike typical wedge-style restraints that point-load the pipe and makes it weaker. It holds pipes tightly in place during installation, allowing full control over the gap between pipes.
The product exerts on the pipes a gripping force equal to 55 tons on each side to eliminate axial motion.
As the pipe applies axial pressure, the GRIP chain increasingly tightens over the pipe, preventing pullout – even for HDPE pipe which expands and contracts over time.
* The HYMAX GRIP allows dynamic deflection of the pipe for up to four degrees per side, reducing future pipe cracks and breaks.
* Installing the HYMAX GRIP effectively transforms the pipe joint into a flexible connection that can help save on continuous repair costs.
