Victaulic’s new AGS Full Flow Fittings with Vic-Rings—a line of grooved carbon steel pipe fittings for abrasive applications in the mining industry—are designed for use with the company’s AGS (Advanced Groove System) Vic-Ring System, which simplifies installation and extends service life of large-diameter abrasive service piping systems.
The fittings feature integral Victaulic AGS Vic-Rings, eliminating additional fabrication requirements and pipe preparation time. The Vic-Rings maintain a smooth bore through the fitting with no reduction in wall thickness at the joints, making the fittings ideal for applications such as tailings and slurry lines. The fittings are available in sizes ranging from 12 to 48 in. (300 to 1,200 mm) and are offered in a variety of straight and reducing styles, including elbows, tees, caps, concentric and eccentric reducers, and adapter nipples. They can be supplied in standard weight or extra heavy construction, and are available for unlined pipe or with abrasion- or corrosion-resistant rubber lining. The AGS Vic-Ring System is rated for pressures of up to 350 psi (2,400 kPa).
