Ball and Socket Joint Pipe

McWane Ductile’s Ball and Socket River Crossing Ductile Iron Pipe is made with a specially machined Ductile iron ball and bell that offers 15 degrees of deflection per joint. This design allows it to traverse irregular slopes, inclines and subaqueous surfaces easily. This pipe is manufactured with extra thick walls to withstand the rugged treatment required for critical installations. The joint is boltless to allow quick, easy assembly without wrenches or special tools. Because of the joint’s inherent strength and flexibility, various installation methods are possible without damaging the pipe.
