By providing a watertight joint, Tylox® WT+ flexible connectors save you operating time and money by:
• reducing the potential for environmental hazards and clean-up due to ex-filtration
• reducing the chances for ground-water contamination due to ex-filtration
• reducing “clean-outs” of soil ingress due to infiltration
• reducing downstream, wastewater processing capacity requirements due to infiltration
Manufactured to suit pipe sizes 8” to 84”, Tylox® WT+ flexible connectors can accommodate many different varieties of connecting pipe materials:
• Ductile Iron
Please contact your Hamilton Kent Representative for assistance in determining the proper size of connector for your application.
Mandrels are available for either round-wall or flat-wall structures.
Materials and Identification
Tylox™ WT+ connectors are manufactured from synthetic rubber compounds, to meet the material requirements of ASTM C923 and BNQ 2622-240.
Connectors are available for “Standard” or “Oil-resistant” applications. Molded, oil-resistant connectors will have an orange dot on the rubber molding. Extruded, oil-resistant connectors will have an orange line around the periphery of the connector.
Other materials and specifications may be available as custom order. Please consult your Hamilton Kent representative regarding your specific requirement.
Tylox® WT+ cast-in connectors are designed for soil-tight and watertight connections in excess of ASTM C923 and BNQ 2622-240 requirements:13 psig (90kPa) watertight sealing in straight alignment and 10 psig (48kPa) watertight sealing at 7o axial deflection.
Tylox® WT+ cast-in connectors are not WHIMIS listed.
Tylox® WT+ cast-in connectors are made from cross-linked, polymeric rubber, which is not considered a health hazard. As with any rubber product, the connector may smolder or burn when exposed to a naked flame. Fire-fighters should wear self-contained, positive-pressure or pressure-demand breathing apparatus, and utilize water-spray, air-foam, dry chemical or CO2-type extinguishing media.
Storage and Handling
Proper care of the connector prior to installation will ensure maximum ease of installation and maximum sealing properties of the connector.
Connectors must not be stored near any electrical equipment that produces ozone.
All connectors must be protected from harmful substance such as dirt, mud, dust and grit.
All connectors, other than oil-resistant connectors, must be protected from contact with solvents and petroleum based greases and oils.
