One-Piece Flange Coupler for Nuclear Applications


One-piece flange couplers are ideal for eliminating protruding dowel bars in segmental pour applications. The flange side of the coupler is typically tack or seal welded to cast-in-place structural steel walls commonly found in most modern nuclear reactor designs.

The nuclear industry demands scrutiny throughout the entire product life-cycle. LENTON products produced under Pentair’s nuclear quality systems receive the utmost attention to detail and can meet the high demands of the nuclear industry. These quality systems are designed to include compliance to ASME® NCA-3800 (ERICO - QSC 595), NQA-1, 10CFR50 Appendix B, 10CFR 50.55(e), 10CFR Part 21 and USNRC Regulatory Guide 1.28. LENTON products produced for nuclear applications are assigned unique part numbers to ensure detailed product documentation and full product traceability in accordance with demanding industry expectations.
