Ancon – UK Origin Couplers.
The Ancon range includes the following:
Ancon Tapered Thread Couplers
Ancon Tapered Thread couplers are designed to suit the majority of applications which require the joining of reinforcing bars. The bar ends are cut square and a tapered thread is cut onto the bar to accept the coupler. This is then tightened onto the bar using a calibrated torque wrench.
MBT Mechanically Bolted Couplers
The MBT range is used when it is not convenient to prepare the bar ends to suit threaded couplers. The bars are supported on two serrated saddles within the coupler and are locked in place by a series of lock-shear bolts.
Tapered Thread Cryogenic Couplers
The Ancon CTT range of tapered-thread couplers has been designed for use where cryogenic-grade reinforcing bar is being used. In all cases, the ends of the rebar are cut square before a tapered thread is cut onto the bar to suit the tapered thread of the coupler. The sleeve is simply tightened onto the threaded bar end using a calibrated torque wrench.
