MODEL Z05 RIGID COUPLING
- Angle-Pad Design -
The Shurjoint Model Z05 is an angle-pad design rigid coupling for moderate pressure piping services including fire mains, long straight runs and valve connections. The angle-pad design allows the coupling housings to slide along the bolt pads when tightened. The result is an offset clamping action which provides a rigid joint which resists so called ‘snaking’ of a long straight run. Support and hanging requirements correspond to ANSI B31.1, B31.9 and NFPA 13. With the removal of only one bolt you can make a fast and easy "swing-over” installation.
The Shurjoint Model Z05 is available with a standard “C”shaped or GapSeal gasket type to meet your specific service requirements.
* 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.
