ONE-LOKTM Series SLDM for Oversized Pipe

Features & Advantages:

1) The SIGMA ONE-LOKTM Series SLDM modi ed wedge-action mechanical joint restraining gland is suitable for use on pit cast grey iron pipes with “oversized” C and D barrel dimensions. For pit cast pipes with A and B size outside diameters per AWWA C150/151, the standard ONE-LOK Series SLD or SLDE restrainer may be used without any modi cations.

2) The SIGMA ONE-LOK Series SLDM is a mechanical joint restraining gland that implements a series of individually activated wedges into the mechanical joint follower gland. When the wedge segment is engaged by the actuating bolt, the primary contact edges of each wedge segment lock onto the pipe wall. This action causes the primary contact edges to grip the pipe and effectively restrain all classi cations of ductile iron pipe.

3) ONE-LOK SLDM precision contoured wedges provide proper contact and support of the ductile iron pipe wall. Each wedge is manufactured with an elongated contour that evenly matches the outside circumference of each nominal diameter of ductile iron pipe. This elongated contour also eliminates the concern of damage to both the pipe wall and the interior cement mortar lining caused by point loading, even on the thinner pressure classes of ductile iron pipe.

4) ONE-LOK SLDM wedge actuating bolt provides the installer with a visual torque indicator. The breakaway top ensures proper engagement of the wedge segment at the time of installation. Unlike other actuating bolts, the ONE-LOK SLDM is manufactured with a proprietary quality control system that ensures the breakaway tops will activate at the correct torque. The breakaway top is sized to match the same dimensions of the bolts and nuts used to assemble the mechanical joint tting and follower gland, eliminating the need for special installation tools. Once engaged, the actuating bolt leaves a residual hex-head shank, allowing post-installation disassembly of the restrained joint, if necessary.
