Straub Mechanical Couplings
Hamilton Kent partners with Straub to offer couplings for repair or prevention of joint leakage, as well as a test coupling to measure the water tightness of pipe and manhole joints.Learn More
With couplings that span an enormous range of sizes for a myriad of uses, it’s a good bet that we have the optimal Straub solution for your industrial projects. Whether for hydroelectric transmission lines, fire-sensitive marine pipelines, in the mining, food and pharmaceutical industries, there’s a Straub coupling and industrial pipe joining solutions that will make a solid, long-lasting connection.
Humans have harnessed the energy of river currents for centuries, and with the development of electricity, the world’s first hydroelectric power plants were developed in the late 19th century. Since then, hydropower has grown to provide 16 percent of the world’s electricity. Penstock pipes or channels that carry water from the reservoir to the hydroelectric turbine play a vital role in a power station. Straub Flex couplings for these large diameter lines are ideal for making secure connections and repairs from pipelines made from all types of materials.
In the marine and shipbuilding industry, fire safety is of the primary importance to protect the lives of passengers and crew. Straub Fire Fence couplings have been tested and certified for use in these settings and can be fitted in fire-risk or confined spaces without special equipment or permits.
In the mining industry, air lines are critical for transferring breathable air from the surface into the mine shaft, while water lines are needed to transport critical water supplies deep into the mines. A wide range of Straub couplings are available to secure connections and make repairs.
