pre-fabricated piping systems. using plain end pipe. 420 and 900 Series Uni-Flange Adapters Job Site Fabrication using Plain End Pipe • Uni-Flange eliminates the problems of pre-engineered. No tie rods or other forms of anchoring are necessary for normal working pressures. See Deflection Chart on page 13. Pre-fabricated piping systems do not offer this installation advantage. DOWN TIME SAVINGS are considerable. or grooving is necessary. The Uni-Flange eliminates the need to rely on off-site fabricators and machine shops. Pipe fabrication can be performed on site. This facilitates bolt hole alignment with the facing flange.Information . simply drop it in and re-install the Uni-Flange. Special considerations may be necessary for pump surges. The Uni-Flange offers significant safety factors at its full rated pressure.Uni-Flange® Adapter Flange Features of the 200. Figure 1 Permits Pipe Deflection • Unlike conventional threaded or welded flanges. This means the Uni-Flange can “make the connection” when other methods can’t. 400. Threaded and welded flanges do not offer this feature. ® Eliminates Bolt Hole Alignment Problems • Uni-Flange Adapters can be freely rotated (see Figure 2) before the flange bolts are inserted and tightened. The Uni-Flange keeps the project moving. Figure 3 • Series 200 and 400 UL Listed / FM Approved The Uni-Flange is the only flange adapter that carries Underwriter’s Laboratories Listing and Factory Mutual Research Corporation Approval for installation on steel or ductile iron pipes in both below and above ground systems (contact factory for details). When the equipment is to be replaced. No threading. a pipe cutter and a wrench. Future Maintenance Capabilities • When future maintenance is required on flanged equipment such as meters or valves. This facilitates removal of the flanged equipment. the Uni-Flange can be easily dis-assembled and slid back on the pipe. U6 Figure 4 .. It is ideal for projects that involve retro-fitting or renovation of existing piping systems. Figure 2 Built-In End Restraints • The Uni-Flange offers built-in end restraint.. welding. the Uni-Flange will permit pipe deflection during installation (see Figure 3).

Refer to technical data sheets for required torque. affecting the seal.) Can Uni-Flange be used on temperature applications? Yes. back from the mating flange. Can abrasive materials be run through a connection using the Uni-Flange Adapter Flange Series? Yes. • • • Can Uni-Flange be used face to face? Yes. See Catalog Section N for Ford Expansion Joints (FEJ). when supplied with a Buna-N gasket. this pipe restraint method has proven to be totally effective. Wiring of set screws to prevent loosening. Uni-Flange does not allow for pipe expansion or contraction. B. How exact is the cutting tolerance? How far off can the length of pipe be? The pipe should not exceed 1/4 in. However. there is absolutely no danger of pipe damage. it creates a pocket in the pipe. Will the set screws back-out or loosen with continual use? When the set screw is originally tightened. U7 . Having been developed nearly 60 years ago and used in hundreds of thousands of mechanical joint retainer glands. Refer to technical data for gasket availability. completely protecting the gasket and the flange. because neither flange nor gasket come in direct contact with the media. But for added security we recommend the following: A. See Deflection Chart on page 13. Can the Uni-Flange Adapter Flange Series be used in underground and above ground installations? Yes. Even if the screw loosens slightly. What about expansion/contraction? In common with other rigid systems. it will remain inside this pocket and continue to restrain the flange. Apply ‘Loc-Tite’ to the set screws after they are tightened. These are available from the factory. • • • • • • • Will the Uni-Flange with set screws work effectively on PVC pipe? It is not recommended. This cutting tolerance is a vast improvement over rigid. Can Uni-Flange be used on steam or gas? It is not recommended for prolonged use on steam. specially designed for PVC Pipe. We recommend the Uni-Flange Series 900. Over a period of time the set screws can cause disfiguring of the pipe. The Uni-Flange Adapter Flange Series offers excellent corrosion resistance. Our various gaskets will handle most temperature ranges. Due to the high strength of ductile iron and steel pipe. (Available upon request.• Uni-Flange® Adapter Flange Questions and Answers Will the set screws damage the pipe? The principle of set screws for pipe restraint is not an entirely new idea. it is excellent for gas. Installation is strictly a metal to metal contact. no problems have been reported under these conditions. Will the set screws hold on a high vibration connection like a pump? In practice. screwed or welded flanges. with a metal ring/spacer.

Its unique “controlled expansion and flexibility” feature has allowed it to withstand several major earthquakes. this is all the restraint that is required. Designed for use with standard mechanical joint bells conforming to AWWA C111. ADVANTAGES OF THE SERIES 1400 • Eliminates the need of costly and time consuming concrete thrust blocks and corrosion susceptible steel tie rods. no beveling. • Used with ordinary ductile iron pipe and mechanical joint sockets. • Proven Technology. leaving a hex head in case future maintenance or removal is required.

There is no need to order. This advantage is provided even after installation and pressurization. The Series 1400 can be used on any thickness or class of ductile iron pipe. This gives a visual indicator and ensures correct installation every time. the wedge returns to its original position and controlled expansion and flexibility are available again. This provides greater surface area contact.Wedge Action Retainer Gland for Ductile Iron Pipe HISTORY The Series 1400 was originally designed to provide joint restraint for ductile iron pipelines installed in areas subject to earthquakes.

The same wrench used to tighten the T-bolt nuts can be used on the wedge actuating screws.12" UL listed and FM approved. • Wedges are contoured to fit the pipe. and wait for special factory fabricated parts. Wedges are contoured to fit the pipe and are mechanically retained in pockets. • The Series 1400 Offers full 5° deflection. Auto-Tork screws are designed with a break away head that twists off at the recommended torque. This feature allows the joint to prevent separation yet remain resilient and flexible after assembly. increasing the restraint capability and distributing the restraining force.36".

All necessary parts show up at the job site! And no parts are lost in the trench if the gland is removed from the pipe for system maintenance or relocation.7 in 1983 and another of magnitude 7.
