Mechanical Pipe Connectors

STATS Type Approved mechanical pipe connectors provide a cold-work solution, removing the associated risks of welding. Quick and efficient to install, this permanent solution significantly reduces maintenance duration and provides a cost-effective solution for piping repair, tie-in or capping of pipework.

Quick and easy to install with only basic pipework preparation, STATS mechanical connectors follow a simple standard bolted installation with no specialist tools required. This results in timely completion of maintenance activities and avoids the costly hire of specialist installation or activation equipment.

Mechanical {Pipe Connectors

Once installed the integrity of the Connector can be verified with a simple pressure test. An integrated seal verification port provides access to the annulus void between the seals allowing a leak-test to be carried out.

A double block and bleed valve can be fitted to the seal verification port to provide a means of periodically monitoring the integrity of the connection, as part of a routine maintenance or inspection programme. Mechanical connectors have been fitted to a variety of piping systems with a 100% leak-free service history.
