What is a mega flange?

What is a mega flange?

The EBAA Iron Megaflange lets you easily adapt plain-end pipe to an existing flange fitting, meter or valve. It consists of a restraint ring and a gasket ring. The Megaflange is made of ductile iron that conforms to ASTM A536 and has flange bolt circles that are compatible with ANSI/AWWA C110/A21.

What are mega lugs?

The Series 1100 MEGALUG® Mechanical Joint Restraints effectively and economically restrain Ductile Iron Pipe (DIP) to mechanical joints above or below ground, for practically any application including valves, hydrants, and pipe.

What is restrained joint ductile iron pipe?

A restrained joint is a special type of push-on or mechanical joint that is designed to provide longitudinal restraint. Restrained joints are rated up to 350 psi working pressure for 4-inch through 24-inch diameter Ductile Iron Pipe, and up to 250 psi working pressure for 30-inch through 64-inch.

What is a uni flange?

Uni-Flange eliminates the problems of pre-engineered, prefabricated piping systems. Pipe fabrication can be performed on site, using plain end pipe, a pipe cutter and a wrench. No threading, welding or grooving is necessary. The Uni-Flange eliminates the need to rely on off-site fabricators and machine shops.

What is a zip flange?

ZIP FLANGE FIELD INSTALLED FLANGE ADAPTER. Connects Plain End Ductile Iron or Steel Pipe to Flanged Fittings, Pumps, Valves ZIP FLANGE is manufactured to. American National Standards Institute. (ANSI) specification ANSI B16.1.

What is AWWA C153?

Back to AWWA C153-11 Ductile-Iron Compact Fittings. This standard describes 3-in. through 64-in. (80-mm through 1,600-mm) ductile-iron compact fittings to be used with ductile-iron pipe or pipe made of other materials with similar outside diameters for conveying potable water, wastewater and reclaimed water.

What is C900 pipe?

C900 is the AWWA standard for cast-iron-pipe-equivalent outside diameter polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pressure pipe and fabricated fittings for potable water transmission and distribution, covering nominal pipe sizes from 4 inches through 12 inches.

What is restrained pipe?

Restrained joint systems are used because standard slip joint (Tyton®) pipe does not provide significant restraint against separation of the joint created by unbalanced thrust forces. These forces are typically caused by changes in direction – bends, tees, dead ends, valves, etc. in the pipeline.

What is a restrained coupling?

The 3800 Series Restrained Coupling is used for joining and restraining two plain end pipes of the same or dissimilar materials (Ductile Iron pipe, PVC pipe, Steel pipe and/or High Density Polyethylene Pipe (HDPE*).

How big are ductile iron flanged fittings?

Which is split megalug for pipe joint restraint?

Available in sizes 4 inch through 48 inch. The Series 1100SD is a split MEGALUG designed to restrain existing mechanical joints on valves, fittings, hydrants and other pipeline apperturances for ductile iron pipe. Available in sizes 3 inch through 54 inch.

What does a megaflange do for PVC pipe?

• MEGAFLANGE adapts and restrains plain end Ductile Iron, PVC, Carbon Steel and HDPE pipe to flanged pipe or fittings, where the flange conforms to ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11 with flange surface facing in accordance with ANSI/ AWWA C207 of the latest revision. • Meets ANSI B16.5 Class 150/125 drilling pattern.

Can a series 1100 megalug be used with grey iron pipe?

The Series 1100 MEGALUG restraint may be used with grey iron pipe having standardized cast iron O.D. per AWWA C150 and C151, and with pit cast Classes “A” and “B” without modification. Use of the Series 1100 with pit cast grey iron Classes “C” and “D” will require over sizing the MEGALUG.
