Mechanische Rohrverbindungssysteme

Togetherness – that’s what our mechanical joining systems are about. Our Seals and Joining Technologies (whether grooved, press, plain-end or otherwise) together form the basis for our advanced products. All are manufactured to exacting standards and for optimal performance to satisfy your piping requirements.

Im Herzstück unserer Produkte für Rohrleitungsverbindungen befindet sich die Dichtung. Aus diesem Grund werden alle unsere Dichtungen strengen Qualitätskontrollen, hochpräziser Entwicklung und umfassenden Prüfungen unterzogen, bevor sie in die Hände unserer Kunden gelangen. Warum investieren wir so viel Zeit in Dichtungstechnologie? Weil ein Ausfall absolut keine Option darstellt.



Durch umfassende Analyse der Elemente ist unser Team erstklassiger Werkstoffingenieure in der Lage, die Werkstoffleistung in zahlreichen Konfigurationen und unter unzähligen Feldbedingungen vorher zu sagen.

Diese Analyse wird dann durch Feldprüfungen untermauert. Jahrelange Analysen dieser Art und Prüfungen haben schließlich zur Entwicklung unserer eigenen urheberrechtlich geschützten Dichtungsverbindungen wie etwa die Victaulic EPDM-Dichtung der Güteklasse „EHP“ geführt.

The Victaulic Grade “EHP” EPDM Gasket is the only 250°F/121°C rated EPDM gasket on the market. That is a 20 degree increase in temperature from standard industry EPDMs (rated at 230°F/110°C). Our engineering customers know that an increase in temperature ratings for a gasket translates into increased confidence in their piping systems.

Genutete Technologie


The concept of grooved technology, as it is known today, was born into existence in 1919 when Ernest Tribe, a British Royal Engineers Lieutenant and Dr. Henry Selby Hele-Shaw, a renowned engineer, finalized a patent application of the invention of the grooved mechanical coupling. Originally known as The Victory Pipe Joint Company, Victaulic began to market this revolutionary new concept in the pipe connector industry. Nearly 100 years later this technology continues to evolve and change the way the construction industry looks at piping systems. It's simply a faster, easier and safer way to join pipe.

So what is grooved technology?

Die genutetet Technologie ist eine Kombination aus vier Hauptelementen:

  • Genutetes Rohr
  • Dichtung
  • the housings
  • Schrauben und Muttern

These 3 components make up a grooved coupling.

Wie funktionieren genutete Kupplungen?

The pipe groove is made by forming or machining an actual groove into the ends of two pipes. A gasket wraps around and on top of the pipe ends, the housings wrap around the gasket and sit in the pipe grooves, and the bolts and nuts are tightened with a wrench to hold it all together.


Es gibt zwei grundlegende genutete Kupplungsarten:

genutete Kupplung

Flexible grooved couplings
These allow a limited amount of angular movement.


Rigid grooved couplings
These do not allow movement and can be used wherever immobility in the pipe joint is needed, similar to a flanged or welded joint.

Today grooved couplings along with grooved fittings, grooved valves and grooved accessories (such as strainers and suction diffusers) are found in a seemingly endless number of piping applications worldwide.

While the grooved pipe joining concept has become synonymous with faster and easier installations, not all manufacturers of grooved products are the same. We are unique. There is only one Victaulic for reliable, durable, precision-constructed piping systems.
