Shape Memory Alloy Couplings for pipes - Standard or customized
In cooperation with the Belgian company Flexmet, the company SCouP srl has been created in order to develop the supporting activity development.
Currently, this product in available as 1/4'' and 1/2'' pipe OD versions up to 320bar/4640psi MEOP, but rapid customization is possible, thanks to in-house, very flexible R&D en Production entities equipped with CAD/CAM, very specific FEA tool, CNC equipment for prototyping and serial production, leak test bench with helium mass spectrometer, 1,300bar/19,000psi high pressure facility and vibration test shaker.
Depending upon Quality and Supply-Chain requirements, specific solutions can be provided.
In addition, ChP Consult can propose a complete solution for pipe kits (Development and Serial production):
- Co-development of piping solution (including bracket constraints relative to couplings, bi-metal coupling, other component...)
- Design/adaptation of couplings (material, dimensions, fatigue constraints, ...)
- Manufacturing according to space quality rules
- Acceptance test of segments (geometry, tightness, proof, electric continuity...)
