The DBS-11A employs a Flat Bar design to better squeeze PE pipe with a less than smooth interior surface finish.
The flat-bar design applies more contact area on the pipe and produces a larger sealing surface. Higher hand torque is required and limits the tool range to 3/4” IPS maximum. Gap stops are welded to the upper jaw and grease fittings are provided for power screw and thrust bearing lubrication.
Optional static electric grounding is accomplished using a SEG-30 Grounding Rod attached to the upper jaw.
This tool has the capacity of (1/2″ CTS – 3/4″ IPS). Please choose (1) size from the gap stop chart below.
Note: A gap stop can protect more than one pipe size if a similar wall thickness exists. (Example: 1/2″ CTS SDR-7 and 1″ CTS SDR-11.5 can be squeezed using a common .155 size gap stop. Custom gap stops are available upon request.)
