A “Coupler” or ‘Pipe Coupling’ is a very short length of metal pipe device, with a socket at one or both ends that joins or connects two pipes. The primary purpose of the ‘Coupler’ is to join a small length of two metal pieces with same diameter size ends or with different diameter size ends, in such situations a Reducing Coupler or Adapter should be used. Appropriate ‘Coupler’ must be selected for the perfect leak proof connection. It is available in various metallic forms like; Stainless Steel, Chrome-plated Brass, CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride), Brass, Copper, ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) and PVC.
The Some Of the Applications
In the chemical industries where chemical flow is regulated.
In the Gas quick Couplers where dangerous gases such as propane and methane is controlled.
It is used in sanitary uses, such as household, beverage and Pharmaceutical Industries.
It is used in the ground water distribution typically pressurized, for water purification as well as for the Agricultural Fields.
Advantages of the Coupling are
The adjustable coupling joints are easy to install.
The coupler increases the hoop stability of the pipe joint.
It is more resistant to the wide range of chemical mixture.
They are rust proof and resistant to fungus, that disturbs pipe functioning over time.
It can be a tight fit by wrench tool and no need for welding.
The Coupler is a versatile device used for drainage piping to pipe ventilation.
The special design of coupler fills the connecting pipe gaps and gives a smooth flow of fluids.
