Coupling Instead of Welding

Pipe Couplings for Explosion Risk Environments

09.04.2015 Pipe couplings from Linnemann offer a fast and safe alternative for „weld-free“ connection of pipeline components for media and environments posing a risk of explosion.

These couplings are particularly suitable for use in cases where media such as dust, e.g. mineral and flour dust, plastic pellets, or food ingredients are transported by pneumatic conveyor systems. Here they enable fast and straightforward plant construction. For example, pressure-proof systems for vacuum and overpressure up to a maximum of 8 bar can be constructed by using safety clips. Pipe ends can also be connected reliably for working with gases thanks to the integrated sealing sleeves. The smooth cut tube ends are simply pushed into the coupling sleeve. The manufacturer suplies tube couplings in lightweight or heavy-duty versions in high-grade or normal steel suitable for a wide range of applications and media and environment conditions.

Facts For Decision-Makers:

  • up to 8 bar overpressure
  • lightweight or heavy duty
  • push-in technology
