12 Inch Mechanical Joint Connection Coupling, Ductile Iron Construction. This particular fitting is a Coupling for Ductile Iron Pipe applications that features Mechanical Joint connections. A coupling is an important fitting as it is used in order to connect two sections of iron pipes. The coupling has 12 inch connections on either side. Its connections on either end feature “mechanical joint” style connections which have machine drilled holes for proper installation. The mechanical joint utilizes a nut and bolt system, and depending on the size of the pipe, there will be more bolts required for a secure connection. A coupling is often used in situations where a pipe has broken and needs to be repaired. The coupling allows you to fix a small section of pipe without having to replace the whole stretch of original pipe. Ductile Iron Pipe systems are most commonly used in the transportation of potable water.
