What is Victaulic coupling?

Victaulic couplings are also called mechanical grooved couplings, Grooved Pipe Clamps, mechanical pipe joining systems. They are components that join mechanical pipes together to create a watertight joint.

It is mainly used in the casting production process and is currently used quite frequently in the mortar industry, large steel pipes, and special vehicles.

Due to the blooming of the shale oil business. Large diameter hose couplings and fittings are very popular in the American market in the past few years. These large dimension couplings are not only used in the Oil field but is multi-purpose used. Such as in water fracturing process, agriculture, firefighting, emergency repairs & water supplies, temporary installations and Bypasses

For one of these LDHC couplings, there is one type needed through the Victaulic clamp to finish the whole connection, that Victaulic groove end hose shank couplings. This kind of forged Aluminum hose shank couplings, through the Victaulic clamp, offers a quick and economical way to use the lay-flat hose in the transfer of fluid.
