One of Hynds Water’s customers had to complete a cut in of a new valve assembly on an existing wastewater pressure main in a confined space environment, all within a limited time window.
Three different pipe materials; Concrete Lined Steel, Ductile Iron, and Polyethylene had to be joined, all with varying outside diameters.
The contractor found that Synoflex Flange Adaptors, supplied by Hygrade Water, offered the best solution for this job. The wide outside diameter tolerance with good angular deflection and a restrained grip ring meant that this job would be done right the first time and within the time restraint.
Utilising Synoflex eliminated the need for an EF coupler and PE reducer from the original design saving additional time and costs.
