Connection systems are the components that connect jumpers and other spools to larger structures such as manifolds and trees.
The designs of the connectors vary greatly between manufacturers with the common system being a clamp connection system that connects two pipe end sections. With horizontal clamping systems the joint tends to be between two straight pipes whilst on a vertical system as Gooseneck can also be present. The insulation of the system will tend to comprise of insulation applied to the male and female pipe connection followed by connection of the housing protecting the clamp system; such applications can require free standing insulation as well as insulation to steel housings.
Both ContraTherm® C25 and C55 are ideal products for use on connections systems of any design. Their cold curing and low shrinkage attributes are ideal when applied within or over thin wall housings or used as the wall to the housing itself, with tight production tolerances required. Sealing arrangements are sometimes used on connection systems where two insulated parts form a joint in a removable structure, such situations require close tolerance manufacture which is aided by the low shrinkage of Advanced Insulation products.
