Groove Transitions

The POLY-CAM AGS Groove Transition Adaptors is a multi-level mechanical transition fitting, protected under patent number 5,211,429, which is hydraulically compressed unto the polyethylene or pipe quality copolymer material.

The relaxation creates a seal to prevent leakage. Under pressure, the internal pressure within the pipe increases the sealing surface area on the barb. Under zero internal pressure, the compression strain and tensional strain created by the compression of the multi-level barbs is greater then the stress created by relaxation and/or thero expansion and contraction. As the internal pressure increases the joining of the polyethylene or copolymer and the coupling increases.

The steel sleeve has a machined AGS cut groove manufactured to Victaulic’s AGS Vic-Ring System ® groove specifications for steel and other IPS pipe (see dimensions sheet).

System Performance
The transition fitting is designed to handle the pressure rating of the HDPE pipe with a 2:1 safety factor at 73.40 degrees Fahrenheit with a minimum 50 year design life.

Quality Assurance
The transition fitting shall be manufactured by Poly-Cam, Inc. Poly-Cam, Inc. shall provide quality assurance with regards to proper installation, compatibility, performance, and acceptance. Transition joint meets or exceeds the requirements of ASTM D2513 Category 3. Upon request Poly-cam can install a stainless steel insert to meet ASTM 2513 Category 1. All Fittings meet ARRA requirements. Manufactured in the United States

HDPE pipe end: Install transition fitting so as to comply with the pipe manufacturer’s recommended procedures. All field welds shall be accomplished in accordance with Plastic Pipe Institute’s welding procedure for butt fusion.

The POLY-CAM AGS Groove Transition is manufactured of Carbon Steel (A53 or A106 grade) Type 304 or Type 316 (ASTM A249 or ASTM A269) and or ERW pipe (ASTM SA-312).

High Density Polyethylene – HDPE pipe conforming to ASTM D-3350 with minimum cell classification values of 345464C (PE 3408), PE445574C (PE 4710), and shall conform to ASTM F714. Density shall be no less than 0.955 gms/ccm as referenced in ASTM D1505, with melt index no greater than 0.15 gms/10 minutes when tested in accordance with ASTM D 1238. Tensile Strength at yield –tensile shall be 3,200 to less than 3,500 psi as referenced in ASTM D638, and ESCR-Environmental Stress Crack Resistance shall be in excess of 5,000 hours with zero failures when tested in accordance with ASTM D 1693-Condition C. All pipe meets ASTM 3035.

The epoxy coating (IF 194T Red Iron Oxide) is fusion bonded to the metal. It has approvals
NSF 61, FDA 175.300, AWWA C116-01,C213-01, UL 262 and FM 1120/1130

Warranty period is one year after date of substantial completion of installation.
