The pipe connecting system that leaves other methods dead in the water.

Deutsch offers a total system that joins piping faster, safer and more reliably.

Other methods simply sink to the bottom when compared with the reliability and cost saving features of Pyplok® swage marine fittings.

This proven swage technology developed by Deutsch

Metal Components makes the most reliable, permanent pipe connections in a fraction of the time required with hot work-type fittings. And Pyplok® eliminates costly gas freeing, fire watches and drastically reduces sys- tem flushing. With Pyplok® NDT is a simple check with a Go-No-Go gage.

Perhaps more important than the dramatic time and cost savings offered with Pyplok® is its proven* supe- rior performance compared with MIL-F-1183 fittings. In side-by-side comparative tests, Pyplok® endured more punishment, more vigorous testing than its labor- intensive counterpart, including an unprecedented, scorching 2000 degree fire test conducted at a major independent research facility. Pyplok® fittings outperform and outlast MIL-F-1183 connections.

And Deutsch has developed new DLT series tools which have reduced tooling size and weight by nearly 65 percent. That means even easier access into tight, confined compartments. Areas a torch would never fit

Available in 600 to 6000 psi pressure classes, sizes to 2" NPS and in a variety of configurations including sweep tees, elbows, couplings and reducers, and in a variety of materials.

When you're ready to raise the performance of your pip- ing systems and, at the same time, substantially reduce its cost, make the con- nection with Deutsch.

Any other pipe fabri- cation system would leave you dead in the water.
