Further extension of our MULTI/JOINT® program with DN425 and DN475

Apr 3, 2017 10:00 AM

Georg Fischer Waga N.V. has some good news to report: thrust blocks are no longer needed when making restraint connections in pipe sizes DN425 and DN475 pipes. In addition to the existing big sized MULTI/JOINT® 3000 Plus fittings up to DN600, we now offer the new sizes/dimensions DN425 and DN475, allowing quicker, easier and restraint repairs of distribution and/or transport lines in the DN-sizes DN425 and DN475.

Save on installation time

Save lots of time when installing our new DN425 and DN475 couplings, simply because anchoring the pipe by means of cement or concrete thrust blocks is no longer needed. No external anchoring also means you need less space in the trench, saving considerable digging time. Moreover you do not have to worry about misaligned pipes. After all, our MULTI/JOINT® 3000 Plus fittings allow pipe misalignment of up to 8˚ per socket end. 

Save on expenses

Saving time automatically means saving money. For instance saving money on not needing extra materials for anchoring the pipes. Or on labour cost related to digging and installing. As a result, repairs will take a lot less time, reducing the downtime of the system. If you ask us, it does not sound half bad.

The options

In addition to our regular DN-sizes, the following new MULTI/JOINT® 3000 Plus couplings and reducers are now available: 

  • Coupling DN425 (non-restraint / restraint) MULTI/JOINT® 3000/3007 (range 432 - 464mm)
  • Coupling DN475 (non-restraint / restraint ) MULTI/JOINT® 3000/3007 (range 481 - 513mm)
  •  Reduction Coupling DN425 x DN400 (non-restraint / restraint) MULTI/JOINT® 3100/3107 Plus (range 432-464 x 392 - 433mm)
  • Reduction Coupling DN475 x DN425 (non-restraint / restraint) MULTI/JOINT® 3100/3107 Plus (range 481-513 x 432 - 464mm)

Bolts and nuts are available in either stainless steel A2 (AISI 304) or A4 (AISI 316). Besides this both the restraint and the non-restraint are available with EPDM or NBR rubber gaskets.
