Teekay Couplings allow pipes to be joined without the need for flanging, grooving, threading or welding. By simply butting two pipes together and connecting with a Teekay Pipe Coupling, space, weight, time and cost savings achieved with every installation.
Teekay Couplings are available in two configurations – Axilock and Axiflex
Teekay Axilock (axially restrained)
The Teekay Axilock has two metallic anchor rings that dig into the pipe wall when the coupling is installed. This prevents the two pipes from pushing apart under pressure or pulling away under end-load.
Teekay Axiflex (non axially restrained)
The Teekay Axiflex joins pipes that are already anchored. In this instance the pipeline forces do not have to be contained by the couplings. Therefore diameters up to 4 metres are possible with this design. The coupling can be placed over the pipe ends or supplied in a wrap – around version.
