The HMP™ U-Coupling is a high pressure pipe coupling designed as an easy method of joining pipes. Sometimes referred to as a quick couplings for steel pipes, the U-Couplings are used in medium to high pressure piping systems. It speeds UP installation time drastically when compared to flanges. Using the HMP™ U-Coupling will result in lower capital expenditure, due to the fact that it is has a lower procurement cost, more pipes can be loaded per truck or rail carriage load, it takes less space when stored and most importantly, there will be a saving on labour, as installation is quicker and easier than flanges. It can be installed in vertical mine shafts, inclines or horizontally. The HMP™ U-Coupling can be used in pipe lines carrying liquids or abrasive material and is perfect for mining backfill pipes.
The HMP™ LI-Coupling can be installed in a system where pipes hang on chains, parrot swings or are U-Bolted down onto pipe supports. Pipes shoul be anchored before and after every change of direction. The full range of HMP™ valves, expansion joints and energy dissipator can be manufactured with LI-Coupling end connections.
