VSH Shurjoint Ring Joint coupling 1117.6 (44) orange UNC

group: R-88E

item: 10R8800D4002

The Shurjoint Model R-88 Ring Joint Coupling is an ideal pipe joining method when pipe is difficult to groove or when grooving is not the preferred joining method. Available in sizes 8” to 96” the R-88 offers ease of use and excellent performance.

The Shurjoint Model R-88 Ring Joint Coupling is supplied with a pair of factory supplied weld rings. For installation weld a ring on each pipe end to be connected, next mount the rubber gasket over the pipe ends, place coupling segments over the gasket and fasten the bolts and nuts.

The Shurjoint R-88 Ring Joint Coupling is considered a shouldered coupling with the factory supplied weld rings serving as the joint shoulders. The R-88’s performance standards meet and or exceed the requirements of ASTM F1476 and AWWA C606. The factory supplied weld rings offer a much more economical and installation friendly alternative to that of traditional shoulder rings, including Type A, B, C, D, E, and G rings.

The R-88 coupling can also be used on stainless steel pipe with optional weld rings available in compatible stainless steel grades. Check with Shurjoint for details and availability.
