MPS Global: Connecting the Past to Improve the Future
In 1977, Connexus mechanical interference joint technology was developed in Houston, Texas. Over a span of thirteen years, founders, Herbert Green and Major Butler, refined and improved the pipe connection technology and equipment. In 1990, the Connexus technology was successfully introduced in the former Soviet Union for use in pipe projects with outstanding results. The reliability of pipelines, and the speed at which they could be deployed was dramatically improved. MPS Global is proud of the proven Connexus technology — we are building on the success of the past to connect the future.
Reliable, Global Partnership
Sustainability and Environmental Commitment
MIF technology has been used for over 50 years to safely and successfully connect pipe-joints worldwide. Projects utilizing the Connexus MIF technology require less heavy equipment and less personnel which can significantly reduce the carbon footprint for a project.
MPS Global is committed to less material waste, less pollution and improved environmental performance.
Connexus Mechanical Interference
The interference, metal-to-metal fit, is achieved by inserting a carefully tapered pin end into an expanded belled end.
Connexus Epoxy Seal
The epoxy seal created when one pipe is inserted into the other creates a flexible, airtight and corrosive resistant wall at the connection point of the joint.
The interference fit is responsible for the axial load carrying capacity of the joint, relying on contact stresses between the pin and bell for strength.
