Historically any pullable application for HDPE Pipe that needed to be assembled and disassembled used flanges. Using flanges take time and the more bolts required, the more time it takes to both assemble and disassemble. How much does it cost you to have an entire crew waiting for technicians to put in one bolt at a time, over and over?
What if, instead, you could simply screw pipe joints together and as one pipe segment is installed, it swiveled leaving the remaining pipeline unaffected? Simply twist and move to the next joint, on and on... How much money would you save the first time? When you disassembled and reused that pipeline, how much money would you save the second time and the third time and on and on...
RTC allows for long lengths of HDPE to be joined easily and more efficiently.
The combination of both the Locking Threaded Connection (LTC) and the Locking Push Connection Tapered (LPCT) into one multipart connection for joining long lengths of pipe together with minimal effort and equipment.
This hybrid connection was designed for long length spools where rotating the entire length of pipe would not be possible or where rotational alignment is critical. Especially, when using pipes with large diameters and/or heavy wall thickness.
An end-user can make-up connections with fewer resources. Simply line up the threads and rotate the Collar component of our connection until the thread locks into place.
The Collar, or "union" of the connection, rotates freely and independently of the fused sections of pipe allowing threads to make-up without either pipe having to rotate.
This connection allows contractors to quickly disassemble and reassemble multiple times and/or locations, with very little assembly equipment.

Combines both LPCT & LTC connections into one multipart unit for joining long lengths of pipe with minimal effort and equipment.
A propriety stepped locking profile that is machined onto short sections of HDPE and pre-fused on pipelines for quick permanent connection.
A proprietary thread that is machined onto short sections of HDPE and connected end-to-end lengths up to 10 feet.
