HYMAX GRIP® LARGE DIAMETER 16″ (14″ coming soon)
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 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 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.
The product exerts on the pipes gripping force equal to 55 tons on each side.
The GRIP’s patented radial closing mechanism holds pipes tightly in place during installation, allowing full control over the gap between pipes.
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.
