KAN-therm: Pipes



Pipes

The System KAN therm Groove couplings allows for connection of traditional carbon steel, black or galvanized pipes (diameters DN25-DN300)

It must be ensured that the prepared pipe has an outside diameter (OD) and wall thickness applicable for the application. Due to the fact that the KAN-therm Groove couplings are usually identified according to the nominal dimension, the actual outer diameter (OD) of the pipe and the couplings connected to it must always be checked, as it is customary in some markets to relate different pipe diameters to the same nominal dimension.

System KAN-therm Groove Assembly

Before the assembly, pipes should undergo the proces of „grooving”. Grooving of pipes, for connections with KAN-therm Groove couplings, may be done utilizing two methods — through rolling or machining. Grooving through rolling is dedicated for pipes with a wall thickness of no more than 9.5 mm.

This method of groove preparation is possible with the use of small and mobile devices and thus, it makes it more popular. It is possible to prepare pipes at the very construction site. On the other hand, pipe grooving through machining requires usage of a slightly larger equipment and therefore it is most often performed in factory or specially prepared workshops at a construction site.
