Easier Design and Construction for Rubber Lined Pipe

Field Length Adjustments and Bends are a Breeze with Welded Joints

Field length adjustments for lined pipe with mechanical joints can add days or weeks to a project schedule. Bends and critical junctures often require waiting for a pipe fitting fabricated to a specific length and lined at a shop. Joint Lock Rings™ can easily be installed on field fit-up ends and are ready to weld within hours. Also, long radius field bends can be accomplished just like unlined pipe.

Flanged Joints

Mechanical joints significantly complicate the construction process.

Welded Joints

Modifications are easy with welded joints, and the number of pipe supports can be reduced.

Steps for Field Length Adjustments

Flanged Joints

One to two weeks

  • Measure cut to fit length
  • Fabricate precise spool at shop
  • Add mechanical joints to spool
  • Rubber line spool at shop
  • Autoclave cure rubber lining
  • Ship spool to job site
  • Bolt spool at tie-in location

Welded Joints

One shift

  • Measure cut-to-fit length
  • Cut pipe
  • Remove rubber from cut pipe end
  • Insert Joint Lock Ring™
  • Weld spool at tie-in location
