GF Central Plastics continues to look for ways to improve its products. Today, we formally roll out a significant advancement in our single-use clamping options for GFCP's 1-1/4" IPS through 6" IPS Electrofusion Service Tapping Tees (EFTT), 2"IPS through 6" IPS Electrofusion High Volume Tapping Tees (EFHVTT) and Branch Saddles with outlets of 2" and smaller, and VersaTap®, as well as Corp and Transition Saddles.
The New TruLock™ Underpart Clamping SystemJul 27, 2020 9:00 AM
|The new multi contact point design is wider and thicker.||This improves the clamping force distribution.|
|The new design utilizes a hinging mechanism on the outlet side of the fittings.||No need to access bolt/screw under the outlet.|
|The self-threading bolts on the back side of the saddle tee are pre-started.||The operator simply snaps the bolts into the two slots on the back side of the tapping tee and tightens with a common 5/16" or 8mm hex socket wrench. The bolt ends are blunted for safety.|
|The underpart is designed to remain on the fitting after fusion is complete.||No more waiting for the clamp through the fusion cycle and cooling period; provides continued support for the fitting.|
|The TruLock™ Underpart now includes a centering indicator.||The centering indicator provides visual assurance that the base is square to fitting.|
|All fitting sizes use the same 5/16th (or 8mm) hex head bolts.||One easy to find hex-head wrench replaces two Allen wrenches and makes proper torqueing easier on the operator.|
