Towsley welding uses the Zap-Lok® Pipe Connection System to save time and money to meet critical deadlines. The Zap-Lok® mechanical process can join steel pipe in less than 60 seconds under field conditions requiring no welding or X-ray testing.

The concept is relatively simple a bell is formed on one end of a joint of pipe, and a groove is formed on the opposite end. Both end-forming operations are accomplished with a hydraulic belling unit and a hydraulic groover, respectively, operated by hydraulic power units.

Zap-Lok conforms to DOT pipeline Safety codes, and ANSI B.31.4. and B. 31.8
