Manufactured to the same ISO standard for Spheroidal Grade cast iron as the UTS Cable 55 Articulated Split Pipe, the Universal Coupling (UC-55) allows the direction of pipe installation to be reversed or for a section of pipe to be replaced following installation. In addition one pair can be utilised as a Bulk-head Split Flange (e.g. on a Beach Man-hole head wall). Utilising UTS Cable UC-55 Extensions a submarine cable repair joint (UQJ or UJ-DA) can be similarly protected and secured with 55mm Articulated Pipe at either end for continuous protection in high risk areas.
The UTS Cable 55 Bulk-head Split Flange comprises the same cast units as for a coupling utilised as a pair to form a secure termination between the articulated split pipe and man-hole wall or other similar structure.
With UC Extensions a submarine cable repair joint can be similarly protected and joined to UTS Cable 55 Articulated Split pipe either side.
