ASME Quick (Fast) Opening Closures
Insulated Joints (also referred to as “Isolation Joints” or “Insulating Joints”) are available in sizes ranging from 2" thru 48" and pressure ranging from ANSI 150 to ANSI 900.
Tube Turns Monolithic Insulated Joints electrically isolate sections of pipeline to prevent corrosion caused by stray electrical currents or interference from other pipelines and power transmission cables. Three features assure electrical isolation:
All closures can be designed for either horizontal or vertical application and can be equipped with such accessories as sight glasses, nozzles, drains, gauges, sampling ports, open/close automation, and safety interlocks
Pig/Scraper launchers and pig/scraper receivers are installed on pipelines to launch and receive pipeline pigs, pipeline spheres, and pipeline inspection tools. Pig launchers & pig receivers offer a safe and effective means of inserting and removing pipeline pigs to and from pipelines
Connection types including full and reduced access as well as mitred designs for inclined or declined vessels are available. Sypris Technologies, TUBE TURNS® Products offers the most diverse and complete closure product portfolio in the world.
The Quick Opening Closure (QOC) is designed in accordance with ASME VIII Divison 1, ASME B31.4 (Oil & Liquid Products Code) & ASME B31.8 (Gas Pipeline Code).
TUBE TURNS® Products of Sypris Technologies Inc. manufactures a family of closures in sizes ranging from 2” to 72”. Our closures are manufactured from a wide variety of ASME approved materials including Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel (304, 304L, 316, 316L, Duplex and Super Duplex), Monel®, Inconel®, Hastelloy® and other exotic materials as specified by our customers.
TUBE TURNS® designs and manufactures a complete line of quick opening closures to international standards, including ASME Section VIII Division I and Division II, PD 5500 / BS EN 13445, with termination specifications to meet ASME B31.3, B31.4, B31.8 and many others. pipeline closures
Size Ranges 6” – 66” Pressure range T-Bolt Closures are ideal for applications such as storage tanks, mixing equipment, filters, separators, inspection ports, tower access, reactor access and hand holes on processing equipment. T-bolts can be supplied in specialty applications such as sanitary equipment, medical waste and hyperbaric chambers.
ANSI 150 – ANSI 2500 Yoke Style Closures can be equipped with operating aids to simplify operation and speed up opening and closing. Devices such as breakover wrenches and chain and sprocket drives
Tube Turns maintains a large inventory of quick opening closure spare parts including o-rings, lip seals and gaskets for closure doors and pressure warning devices, fabricated assemblies, yoke bolts, swing bolts, locking segments and related hardware. Majority of the parts can be shipped the same day.
Experienced factory trained field service technicians can be dispatched to conduct comprehensive functionality assessment of closures located on-shore and off-shore worldwide. Comprehensive closure evaluation report will be submitted to customers at the conclusion of each inspection.
Tube Turns offers on-site classroom and field training for field maintenance operators and pipeline engineers for customers worldwide. Training classes are customized to cover topics in general equipment maintenance with emphasis on safe closure operation.
The Sypris® Technologies Sig-Tech® intrusive Pig Signaler can be installed at pre-determined intervals on pipelines to detect the passage of a cast polyurethane pigs or spherical type pigs.
