The G-Lok clamp connector has a significantly smaller diameter and a shorter length than that of a comparably rated ANSI or API ring joint flange connection, reducing weight and space required for make-up.
The G-Lok is especially well suited to systems that require close piping and hookup arrangements. As there are no bolt holes to align, the G-Lok clamp may be rotated to conveniently locate the bolts for easy assembly and disassembly of the connections.
Features of the G-Lok clamp connectors:
- Easy assembly
- Compact construction
- Reduced weight
- Reusable metal-to-metal sealing technology
- Full-design approval
- Increased flexibility
Manufactured from forging in a wide range of materials; carbon steels, stainless steels, special and nickel alloys, as well as duplex, superduplex and cladded configurations, the G-Lok is a standardised product that meets or exceeds all the current industry codes and standards.
It also has design approval from Lloyds, DNV and Stoomwezen and can be forged to suit a customer’s specific project requirements.
