Flange joints may generally be used for the detachable connecting of plastic pipes as well as transitions from plastic fittings to devices (valves, pumps).
GF Piping Systems offers numerous flanges for your joints.
Compression joints are a good solution – especially in a wet environment, when no electricity is available, the climatic conditions are poor or different materials must be connected together.
Another great advantage is that the pipes require minimum preparation and no special tools are needed for installation. The detachable and reusable compression joint is ideal for temporary applications.
As no metal parts are used in joints between plastic pipes, no corrosion can occur and the weight of the joint is reduced.
Unions are available in several materials.
For further information on the various ways of using union joints, please refer to our GF Piping System Connecting Tool.
The GF Piping Systems line of fittings contains various adapter and threaded fittings.
For the connection of plastic piping components to metal pipes, fittings or valves with threaded connections, adapter unions with metal/stainless steel/brass connections are preferred.
Transition fittings with rustproof reinforcement ring A2 and parallel internal pipe thread Rp make it possible to connect both plastic and metal pipes as well as plastic pipes with one another.
Threaded fittings without reinforcement ring in the materials ABS, PVC-U and PVDF with parallel internal thread Rp make it possible to connect plastic pipes with one another.
The plug joint from GF Piping Systems allows fast and reliable work on a construction site with minimum use of tools independently of a power supply.
This connection technology can be used to process the most diverse pipes such as polybutene and multilayer composite pipes with the same fittings.
