MPS Global machines have performed on virtually every type of terrain, under severe weather conditions and in hostile environments. Connexus technology has been used to join internally and externally coated pipe.
Joints made with Connexus technology are designed to withstand pressure, as well as external loadings. MPS Global’s internal full-scale laboratory testing allows application of appropriate design factors to ensure safe, reliable operation. MIF technology has been used for over 50 years to connect more than a million pipe-joints worldwide. Connexus technology can be used to carry corrosive fluid without the vulnerability of threaded couplings, or damaged internal coating resulting from high temperature produced by welding.
Connexus is a solution for bare, internally or externally coated pipelines.
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.
