Teekay® Axiflex Type I EPDM

Teekay Axiflex
(non axially restrained)

The Teekay Axiflex joins pipes that are already anchored. In this instance the pipeline forces do not have to be contained by the couplings. Therefore diameters up to 4 metres are possible with this design. The coupling can be placed over the pipe ends or supplied in a wrap – around version.

Each coupling (whether Axilock or Axiflex) consists of a casing, a gasket and a lockpart. The purpose of the casing is to house the gasket and to press it onto the pipe surface when the lockpart is closed. The lockpart is designed to pull the two ends of the casing together circumferentially around the pipe. In order to achieve this, the coupling is labelled clearly with a torque figure which ensures that the gasket is compressed sufficiently against the pipe surface.

The Axiflex has two thick sealing lips which allow for pipe expansion and contraction. The sealing lips press against the pipe surface and form lip seals. The lip seals are designed to resist the internal pressure in the pipes. As the pressure increases, the lip seals swell to seal more tightly against the pipe surface.
