Clamp connector

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.
