MODEL 7705 STANDARD FLEXIBLE COUPLING
The Model 7705 Standard Flexible Coupling is a standard flexible coupling for use in a variety of general piping applications of moderate pressure services. The model 7705 couplings features flexibility that can deal with misalignment, distortion, thermal stress, vibration and noise and also resist seismic tremors. With the use of Model 7705 couplings you can even design a curved layout. See Typical Applications – Flexible Couplings on Shurjoint cut sheet #B-19.
All Model 7705 couplings are comprised of two identical ductile iron housings segments, EPDM rubber gasket and plated track bolts & nuts. Housings segments are supplied with our standard painted finishes, i.e. orange or RAL3000 red. Optional finishes such as hot dipped zinc galvanized and custom epoxy coatings are available.
All DIN size 7705 couplings up to DN150 size and the DN200 7705H coupling are VdS approved in addition to cULus and FM approvals.
* Working Pressure is based on roll grooved standard wall carbon steel pipe.
† Allowable Axial Displacement and Angular Movement (deflection) figures are for roll grooved standard steel pipe. Values for cut grooved pipe will be double that of roll grooved. These values are maximums; for design and installation purposes these figures should be reduced by: 50% for ¾”/DN20 – 3½”/DN90; 25% for 4”/DN100 and larger to compensate for jobsite conditions.
** Deflection or angular movement given is the maximum value that a coupling allows. When using the given maximum angles for a curved layout, proper bracing should be used to counter pressure thrust that will occur when the system is pressurized. Flexible couplings can be used for angular movement and or thermal expansion, though please note individual coupling(s) cannot be used to their maximums for both types of movement within a system at the same time.
