Shurjoint

Mechanical couplings were first developed in the 1920’s and evolved into grooved mechanical couplings during the 1950’s & 60’s. This revolution was further spurred in the latter half of the 20th century by advanced engineering and innovative materials such as ductile iron and EPDM elastomers.
 
The history of Shurjoint dates back to 1974, when the founders produced their first grooved couplings. These first couplings were produced from malleable iron, the casting material of choice at this time. Before long, foundry production was converted to ductile iron. Ductile iron was the ideal raw material, providing for precision castings and superior strength, without the need for further heat treatment. EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) provided a great advancement in synthetic rubber elastomer compounds. This new compound offered a service life equal to or in some cases longer than that of carbon steel pipe. EPDM was an ideal gasket material for grooved piping systems. With over four decades of experience, Shurjoint is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacture of mechanical piping components. Shurjoint has developed and currently offers 3000 individual piping components in sizes from 1/2” to 104”, for use with a variety of piping materials including carbon steel, stainless steel, ductile iron, PVC, HDPE, CPVC and copper tubing. Our mission is to supply the highest quality products to customers worldwide with an unmatched level of customer service at a superior value. In addition to these hallmarks, Shurjoint continuously invests in research, engineering and development, resulting in innovative products and new solutions for the changing needs of industry.
