Elster Perfection introduces Hydrosert® 1 ½” CTS and 2” CTS Couplings to the Water Industry

Cleveland, OH, November 1, 2010 Elster Perfection the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of high integrity systems for the natural gas, propane, and water distribution industries introduced Hydrosert 1 ½” CTS and 2” CTS couplings for the potable and reclaim water industries.

Hydrosert® 1 ½” CTS and 2” CTS couplings are non-corrosive and feature a “no stress” design that separates and optimizes both the gripping and sealing areas of the fitting.  Once assembled, the fitting is free to rotate on the pipe without affecting the water tight seal. This unique connection method results in dependable, leak-proof performance. Hydrosert fittings are pressure rated to the design pressure of the piping to be connected, up to 200 PSIG (13.8 bar).

“Demand for our Hydrosert product line is growing quickly as more and more utilities are choosing high density polyethylene (HDPE) for their distribution piping,” commented Jim Hansen, Senior Product Manager. “Our growing customer base asked for the 1 ½” CTS and 2” CTS versions of the Hydrosert, and we responded”

Elster Perfection offers a full line of Hydrosert polyethylene mechanical fittings which allow installers to make leak-free water system connections - easily and economically. The Hydrosert product line is designed for underground HDPE water piping in residential water systems. Hydrosert fittings are available in 3/4" CTS to 2" IPS in a variety of configurations including couplings, ells and tees, caps, valves and fusion tapping tees.
