The BS1401 pipe manufacturers’ couplings were not suitable for the ground conditions as the seal is EPDM to BS EN 681-1:1996 and the specification for this project was for Chemical Couplings.
Further investigation carried out by Flexseal identified that a cost saving could be offered on the project by supplying Nitrile couplings whilst still providing a reliable, chemically resistant seal and connection.
This change in specification was welcomed by the contractor and subsequently the client as the savings achieved were improved by 50% compared to the original products specified.
Flexseal supplied the project from our large stock holding of Nitrile Couplings, meaning the quick lead times and flexible delivery options could be offered.
Nitrile couplings provide chemical resistance to many common hydrocarbons. Flexseal are committed to providing as many flexible options as possible to support our customer base.
