ELGEF Plus branch saddle system ToploadELGEF Plus branch saddle system Topload

One of the most important highlights presented at Aquatech is the ELGEF Plus branch saddle system Topload. The ELGEF Plus branch saddle system Topload – based on the proven principle of the established ELGEF Plus modular system – is the innovative branch saddle solution for large PE pipe installations from d315 to d2000 mm for gas, water and industrial applications. It convinces with superior modularity and flexibility, functional design and component compatibility rendering on-site installations easy, fast and safe. Large diameters and challenging application conditions call for a perfect fit on the pipe, maximum strength and durability of the system components and consequently absolute precision in manufacturing. Integrated mounting ribs for securing the clamping attachment enable furthermore safe and easy installation of the branch saddles thanks to optimal pressure distribution. For a perfect-fit installation without pressure reduction factor, the saddle is aligned precisely before the welding process using an axial and radial mark. The ability to install on unpressurized as well as pressurized pipelines and the choice of electrofusion or butt fusion connections is further evidence of the versatility of these saddles.

Contact-free ultrasonic level measurement – reliable and maintenance-free

The intelligent 2260 Level Transmitter and 2270 Level Sensors from GF Piping Systems set new standards in easy and precise level measurement. Whether in closed tank systems or open basins – nearly every liquid can be measured using ultrasound. Available in a variety of sensor materials, such as PP or PVDF, means the devices are resilient and long-lasting even in harsh environments.
