Aeration Pipe Joints and Endcaps

SSI Aeration Systems use standard components. We manufacuture our own unions, removable end-caps and and pipe joints in our factory. We also produce stainless steel bolted couplings according to our specifications specifically made for aeration systems with resistant elastomers and anti-rotation teeth. Generally the larger the diffuser and the greater the cantilever off of the header pipe, the stronger the joint required. Aeration systems also need to be designed with thermal expansion and contraction in mind.
