High performance weldless flange-to-pipe connections
For almost 20 years, our patented Quickflange™ technology has built up a proven track record as a leading provider in cold work solutions, offering clients a permanent repair option for improving pipeline integrity and flow assurance eliminating the need for welding or hot work.
With an extensive range, Quickflange™ is a safe, cost-effective and efficient solution generating up to 80% time saving over traditional welding.
Quickflange™ Technology Overview
Our mechanically robust weldless flange-to-pipe connection utilises a modified standard flange where patented internal grooves are machined in such a way that it slides over the pipe end. By combining our Quickflange™ connector with our bespoke activation tool, the installation process is both quick and easy.
Quickflange™ Installation Process
Once the line is isolated, a straight cut is crucial to ensure the Quickflange™ sits flush to the pipe edge. The hydraulic tool is aligned into the pipe and activated to the required pressure. During this process, the cone of the tool quickly extends allowing the segments to flare – swaging the pipe into the pre-machined grooves of the Quickflange™ connector. The tool is then reversed, concluding the installation and creating a permanent gas-tight seal.
