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

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

Auto-Tork actuating screws GASKETED SEAL As with a standard mechanical joint. This design utilizes Ring Segments and is an exclusive feature of the Series 1500. so they cannot fall out of their pockets. The Series 1500-C can be used on any thickness class of AWWA C-900 PVC pipe without any point loading. high performance joint restraint device for PVC pipe available in the water works industry . The restraint segments are designed with a “slot” at the top. leaving a hex head in case future system maintenance or removal is required. These segments are contoured to fit each pipe size exactly and have integrally cast restraint edges along their bottom surface. providing complete and total thrust restraint for the joint. they cannot fall out. This locks the restraint segments onto the pipe surface. Factory Mutual Research Corporation.
