Built stronger and more compact, the UltraCoupler by Ultraflo Corporation, a subsidiary of Bray International, offers a lightweight design, simple adjustment, and a secure seal free of voids. The coupler design is pressure-tested to 65 psi.
The UltraCoupler is designed for easy, fast installation and is available in 4" and 5" Groove-by-Groove or Groove-by-Plain units. The split gasket is secured to the coupler by a dovetail retention, and a connecting link keeps the body halves attached in the open position. These features simplify the installation and replacement processes.
The UltraCoupler can be fully opened by simply removing the captive Detent Hinge Pin. When fully opened, the UltraCoupler will accept industry-standard circular gaskets, if desired. Lightweight, heavy-duty, and rugged, the coupler is made of A356-T6 aluminum, with 304 stainless steel hardware for durability and corrosion resistance. The heavy-duty handle features two connection points to the body. A wide profile provides a broad base for applying both opening and closing pressure. The wide-open design easily accommodates gloved hands and eliminates pinch points. Bushings at all pivot points prevent freeze-up. The UltraCoupler additionally provides easy adjustment. When piping variations make coupler adjustment necessary, connecting link tension is easily field-adjusted without special tools.
The UltraCouplerís gasket design is free of void areas when installed to prevent contamination buildup. The gasket ends are extended to compress together when coupler is closed, forming a positive, leak-free seal. All gaskets are foodgrade white nitrile.
