New Victaulic assembly system for offshore oil platforms

Victaulic, a manufacturer of mechanical pipe-joining systems, has introduced the Style DLY Delta-Y assembly, a combination of pre-assembled Victaulic cast grooved fittings, rigid couplings and butterfly valves. The Delta-Y assembly is designed specifically for bulk cement/barite systems on offshore oil platforms and is also ideal for drilling mud and other associated systems.

The Victaulic Delta-Y assembly speeds fitting and valve installation. Each pre-assembled unit is delivered complete with all fittings and valves oriented correctly as required by system design. The unit is joined to the piping system with three Style 107 QuickVic rigid couplings, easing installation.

The assembly is designed to improve the operational efficiency of cement/barite piping systems. The offset disc within the valves provides a larger flow area for more efficient flow, low operating torque and leak-tight sealing. The fittings maintain full wall thickness and have a smooth inner flow path to minimise abrasion and blockages. The Delta-Y assembly is also available with 5D Long Sweep fittings that increase fitting life and maximise flow capabilities for faster cementing operation.

The Victaulic Style DLY Delta-Y assembly is available in 5" and 6" pipe sizes (125 and 150mm) and has a pressure rating of 300 psi (2,065 kPa).
