The article discusses grooved mechanical couplings in high-pressure piping applications. The author notes that the application of grooved mechanical piping, which is a pipe-joining system that utilizes couplings, had previously been unsuited for high-pressure applications. Topics include the basics of grooved mechanical piping, the capabilities of high pressure couplings, and grooved mechanical pipe joining in both traditional and high-pressure underground mining applications.
