Tyton Sit Plus
Anchor gasket is fitted with inserts inside the elastomer. They hook onto the spigot when the pipeline is pressurized, and anchor the joint.
The basic principle of anchor gasket consists in transmitting the axial forces from one pipeline component to the next, thus ensuring that the joint does not come apart. Anchor gasket anchors the socket joint by hooking onto the pipe spigot and so avoids having to install concrete blocks.
Recommended operating pressure
The recommended operating pressure is as follows:
Allowable Joint deflection is as follows:
|DN||Allowable joint deflection|
Anchor gasket joint is of particular interest in congested conditions that preclude the construction of concrete anchor blocks or in poorly cohesive soils, as well as laying pipes on a steep slope or in a casing.
Warning: The use of anchor gasket is not recommended when the joints are subjected to uncontrolled and repeated traction or joint deflection.
Anchor gasket cannot be disassembled after pressure build-up.
