Krausz USA HYMAX GRIP 16-inch
The HYMAX GRIP 16-inch restraint coupling from Krausz USA features only four top-facing bolts for installers to tighten and a stab-fit, one-piece design. The top-facing bolts eliminate underdigging for space to crawl under the pipe to tighten bolts, while the stab-fit, one-piece design allows for easier and faster installation, eliminating problems such as losing bolts in the mud. Capable of gripping and connecting pipes with 70 tons of power, the GRIP chain offers circular restraint around the pipe using a radial closing mechanism that holds pipes tightly in place during installation, allowing full control over the gap between pipes. The coupling can absorb post-installation dynamic pipe deflection of up to 4 degrees on each end, reducing the risk of damage and cracking due to ground shifts and temperature changes, and saving resources on future pipe repairs. 855-457-2879;

Vactor has introduced the RDB 1015 rapid deployment boom as an option for the company’s 2100 Series combination sewer cleaners, which include the Vactor 2100i and 2100 Plus trucks.

The boom has a telescoping tube-within-a-tube design and a flexible hose resides inside the inner tube. The hose extension assembly uses a positively driven belt to advance the flexible hose from inside the telescoping tube. When positioned for work, the hose remains securely in place.
