MODEL A505 GROOVED COUPLING FOR DUCTILE IRON PIPE
The Shurjoint Model A505 couplings are for connection of grooved ductile iron pipe and fittings of ANSI/AWWA C151/A21.51, Class 53 or higher pipe dimensions. The same coupling can be used either as a flexible coupling or a rigid coupling depending on the groove processed. The Model A505 coupling is recommended for service up to 500 psi (35 Bar) depending on the size. The GapSeal gasket fits flush over the pipe ends and prevents fluids from entering into the gasket cavity. The Model A505 couplings sizes 3" – 12" (80 mm – 300 mm) are comprised of two identical ductile iron housing segments and sizes 14" – 24" (350 mm to 600 mm) are of four segments. The A505 is supplied with painted black.
* Pressure ratings listed are based on radius cut-grooved Thickness Class 53 or higher pipe.
† only when connected on flexible radius groove.
