Couplings for HVAC piping systems
Victaulic’s Style 107 QuickVic rigid couplings in 10- and 12-in. sizes are designed to expedite project construction by including no loose parts and no need to disassemble before installation.
Victaulic’s Style 107 QuickVic rigid couplings in 10- and 12-in. sizes are designed to expedite project construction by reducing installation steps and requiring only standard hand tools for assembly. Installation-ready features include no loose parts and no need to disassemble before installation; the coupling is simply pushed onto the pipe-end as a fully assembled unit, joined by a second pipe-end and tightened. Installation is completed twice as fast as standard grooved couplings and up to 10 times faster than welding and flanging, while offering the same high-performance capabilities. No flame or heat is required for installation, improving jobsite safety. Ideal for HVAC, utility, and process piping applications, Style 107 rigid couplings are available in sizes ranging from 2- to 12-in., and join standard roll-grooved and cut-grooved steel pipe. The Style 107 family accommodates pressures ranging from full vacuum up to 750 psi (5,170 kPa), depending on pipe diameter and wall thickness. Couplings are supplied with a grade “EHP” EPDM gasket, which features a temperature range of -30 to 250 F.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
