The patent-pending Style W77 AGS (Advanced Groove System) coupling is comprised of two housings and is designed to provide a strong connection for large diameter pressure piping systems. Its unique wedge-shaped key profile increases allowable pipe end separation, resulting in easier initial assembly alignment.
Style W77 AGS couplings are rated up to 350 psi/2400 kPa for 14 – 24”/350 – 600 mm piping systems. Style W77 AGS couplings provide limited linear and angular pipe movement at the pipe joint that can be used to compensate for thermal growth of piping systems, vibration attenuation, seismic, and other applications requiring flexibility. Support and hanging requirements are defined within Victaulic Design Data Submittal 26.01.
Style W77 AGS couplings are provided with FlushSeal® gaskets for a variety of services. Please specify gasket grade when ordering. Please refer to publication 05.01 for gasket service ratings.
Victaulic AGS products use a patented groove profile that requires the use of special AGS rolls. AGS products must not be used on pipe that has been grooved using standard grooving rolls. Failure to use AGS products on AGS grooved pipe could result in serious personal injury, property damage, joint leakage or joint separation.
When preparing pipe for AGS products, please refer to groove specification section 25.09 for AGS groove dimensions.
