Bertrem Products Importing
Straub Couplings For U.S.
And Canadian Distribution
Bertrem Products, Inc., Tulsa,
Okla., recently began importing
Straub couplings and pipe repair clamps from Switzerland for use in the United States and Canada.
These pipe connections have a pat- ented pressure energized sealing system ideal for all kinds of pipes.
The new Straub coupling replaces flanged, welded, bolted and bonded joints for virtually any metal or plastic piping over a wide range of sizes and pressures. According to the manufacturer, it is so simple to install that the time saved in instal- lation often pays for the actual cou- pling. The entire body of the cou- pling is 300 series stainless steel. It is compact and lightweight, making it ideal for tight places such as on boats. It has U.L., ABS, and Mara- thon approvals, among others.
The Straub coupling is available in the U.S. and Canada only through Bertrem Products, Inc.
Four brochures, just published, de- scribe the couplings in detail.
