Mechanical pipe-joining systems manufacturer Victaulic has launched a new tool to prepare pipes for efficient and reliable flame-free joining.


The Ve460 shop fabrication roll grooving tool is designed for use with pipes from 100–1500mm in diameter, depending on pipe material.


It is suitable for preparing pipes to be joined with Original Groove System (OGS) couplings for 100–300mm sizes or the Advanced Groove System (AGS) ranging from 350- to 1500mm.


“It has been specifically designed for the wedge-shaped AGS grooves that deliver high-pressure ratings and can roll a groove on standard wall, large diameter pipe in five to seven minutes. that means that installers can prepare pipe and install couplings in a fraction of the time it takes to weld,” said Victaulic vice president and general manager for Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, Mark Gilbert.


Available for purchase or hire, the fully-motorised, semi-automatic device is equipped with a three-phase motor wired for 400 volts and can be rewired for 230 volts. It comes with safety guards and a safety foot switch and is supplied with rolls for OGS from 100-300mm and for AGS from 350-600mm. All rolls are Enhanced Tracking Rolls (ETR) to prevent pipe ‘walk-off’ and make grooving short pipe lengths easier.
