First Supa Maxi™ DN600 in Belgium

When a fracture occurred at the wastewater station in Gentbrugge, Aquafin contacted AVK Belgium for immediate delivery of an AVK Supa Maxi™ flange adaptor. It quickly solved the problem and thus avoided an environmental incident.

Quick solution

During the winter, a fracture occurred at a wastewater station in Gentbrugge close to where the discharge pipes leave the pumping station. Thomas Eeman, expert structural repairs at Aquafin, was able to temporarily solve the problem so that it caused as little discomfort as possible for everyone in the area. Eeman then contacted AVK Belgium for a permanent solution.

Environmental incident avoided

AVK Belgium offered a Supa Maxi™ flange adaptor as a unique solution for the leak. A DN600 Supa Maxi™ adaptor was delivered from AVK International headquarters in Denmark within only one day.

"We have been able to solve the problem within a short period of time and thus avoided an environmental incident" - Thomas Eeman

AVK Supa Maxi™ universal tensile couplings

Supa Maxi™ comprises a complete range of large tolerance universal and tensile couplings according to EN 14525 for water, gas and wastewater applications. Straight couplings and flange adaptors are available in DN50-600, end caps in DN50-400, and step couplings and transition couplings are available in DN50-300. Furthermore, gate valves in DN80-300 for water and wastewater applications are part of the range. The patented SupaGrip™ sealing support system features a flexible bracket, and combined with the unique grip design, it provides superior tightness and tensile resistance on all pipe dimensions and materials.
