Bimetal Tube & Pipe Couplings
Standard Tube and Pipe Bimetallic (Al/SS) Transition Couplings
Atlas bimetallic transition couplings are robust, metallurgically-bonded dissimilar metal joints used to weld dissimilar metal tubes or pipes. These high strength joints are reliable and engineered to withstand typical welding temperatures. They are hermetic and suitable for use in Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) and are used in thousands of cryogenic and industrial applications worldwide.
