Victaulic QuickVic Style 107N rigid couplings and QuickVic Style 177N flexible couplings were used to make the 2 ½-inch to 12-inch connections on the condenser and chilled water lines, along with Series 732 Wye-Type Vic-Strainers, Series 761 Vic-300 MasterSeal butterfly valves, the corresponding fittings, and IMI Hydronic Engineering TA balancing valves. Victaulic was used exclusively on the building’s fire protection system. An added benefit to the company’s grooved solution is its ability to accommodate building settlement, seismic movement, and thermally induced expansion or contraction of the piping.
“Victaulic’s products were a huge complement to our own prefabrication capabilities,” explains Puniello. “With a project of this size and on such a compressed schedule, our partnership provided us the needed resources and solutions to get the job done on time.”
In addition to reducing installation time, Victaulic’s solutions played a large factor in the overall savings of the project.
“Their grooved solutions, couplings, and valves enabled us to work quickly and efficiently, exceeding our expectations and saving us money,” says Don Forsythe, Arden’s superintendent. “The condenser and chilled water systems have been tested and are running nicely.”
