New Pipe Connecting System Reduces Costs

—Literature A new mechanically applied pipe connecting system called PYPLOK ® that eliminates the costly expense, hazard and time of welding and brazing has been designed for use in the marine shipbuilding/ repair industries and introduced by Deutsch Metal Components Division, Los Angeles, Calif.

PYPLOK eliminates costly fire watches, gas free certification requirements and extensive pipe and preparation, and offers the longterm benefits of fast installation and proven reliability. Permanently joining piping by means of hydraulically acutated swaging tools, PYPLOK connections are said to be stronger than the pipe itself.

All standard configurations, including couplings, 90 degree elbows, tees and reducer fittings are available in materials of 70/30 Cuni, 316L stainless and carbon steel in N.P.S., O.D., and metric sizes. Installations can be made by a single operator of moderate skill.

PYPLOK is available in pressure classes up to 6,000 psi, and seals are compatible with most fluids and gases.

Approvals have been received from NAVSEA, USCG, ABS, Lloyd's Registry, and virtually every maritime approval agency in the world.
