Stargrip® series 3000 for Ductile Iron Pipe

FEATURES & ADVANTAGES • Gland is made from high strength Ductile Iron per ASTM A536, Grade 65-45-12 and is compatible with all Mechanical Joints conforming to ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11. • The Wedge Assembly is designed with a Break-Off Torque Control Nut that will only break off in one direction, ensuring proper installation. • The Stargrip® offers a full 5° deflection through 12" size, 3° on 14"-24", 2° on 30"-36" and 1° on 42"-48". • Minimum safety factor of 2:1. • Stargrip® sizes 3"-36" are listed with Underwriters Laboratories Inc. and sizes 3"-12" are approved by Factory Mutual Research. • The Wedges are heat treated to a minimum of 370 BHN. • The Wedge Assembly is designed to fit specific pipe sizes and is field repairable. • No special tools are required for installation of the Stargrip®. • Stargrip® eliminates tie rods and thrust blocks. • Standard gland color is Graphite Black (RAL 9011).

SAMPLE SPECIFICATIONS
Restrainer mechanism shall be integrated into the design of the follower gland. As the mechanism is activated, multiple wedging action shall be imparted against the pipe increasing its resistance as internal pressure increases. After burial of the restraining mechanism, joint flexibility shall be maintained. The actuating bolt shall be threaded into the restraining wedge and have a 1-1/4" hex operating nut. The operating nut shall be threaded onto the actuating bolt, not swaged or riveted. The restraining twist off nut bolt system shall have a torque-limiting feature designed to break off at preset torque levels, thus insuring proper action of restraining device. Glands shall be manufactured of high strength ductile iron in accordance with ASTM A536 Grade 65-45-12 requirements. The wedge shall be manufactured of high strength ductile iron and be heat treated to a minimum hardness of 370 BHN. Applicable dimensions shall conform to ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11 and shall be incorporated into the mechanical joint restraint so that the device facilitates use with standard mechanical joint bells. The mechanical joint restraint mechanism shall have a maximum water working pressure of 350 PSI for sizes 3"-16" and 250 PSI for sizes 18" and above. All sizes shall have a minimum safety factor of 2:1 (i.e. twice the maximum pressure rating of the restraint). The mechanical joint restraint mechanism shall be Underwriters Laboratories listed on size 3" through 36" and Factory Mutual Research Approved on size 3"-12". The restraint mechanism shall be Star® Pipe Products Stargrip® series 3000 or an approved equal.
