The Roll Grooving Tool is a tool that forms a Victaulic IGS groove into either Schedule 10 or Schedule 40 1-inch pipe.

Victaulic has announced the launch of its FireLock Innovative Groove System (IGS) for 1-inch fire protection piping.

The FireLock IGS line includes Installation-Ready fittings, an Installation-Ready Rigid Coupling, branch line outlets and adapters, as well as the VicFlex Series AH2-CC Braided Hose and the RG2100 Roll Grooving Tool. These IGS products feature a patented IGS groove specification, optimized for 1-inch pipe, and are cULus Listed and FM Approved for service up to 365 psi.

The RG2100 Roll Grooving Tool is a tool that forms a Victaulic IGS groove into either Schedule 10 or Schedule 40 1-inch pipe. This tool eliminates measuring and adjustment by the operator, as compared to threading, and cold forms the IGS groove to specification every time.

Victaulic’s IGS products can be used to create hard-pipe sprigs, pendants, and arm-overs, without using a wrench or threading dies.

Simplifying Small Diameter Projects

Victaulic’s RG2100 tool takes the guess work out of pipe preparation. The portable tool that mounts on a power drive allows users to cut, ream and groove 1-inch pipe in 35 seconds or less compared to over 70 seconds to thread pipe for a threaded elbow. The RG2100 reduces training and instruction time, and utilizes a one-touch actuation to form a groove compared to a hands-on process to oil and cut thread.

Small Diameter Solutions Made More Efficient

The combination of the RG2100 tool with an Installation-Ready elbow allows customers to install a grooved elbow efficiently, and eliminates the use of pipe wrenches which can cause injury from repeated motion. Customers are able to use Schedule 10 pipe throughout their systems, improving flow as well as decreasing both the weight and cost of pipe.

Clean, Safe Jobsites for Customers

The IGS solution eliminates the oil drippings and shavings typically produced during the threading process, allowing contractors to use the portable RG2100 throughout the jobsite without worry, and in turn increasing productivity. Additionally, the mechanical joint’s formed groove maintains pipe thickness, which improves corrosion resistance. And, as with most Victaulic products, visual confirmation of pad-to-pad installation ensures leak-free joints for customer confidence.
