Mechanical Joint fittings come with a flexible joint, where the sealing is obtained by applying pressure to the gasket by mechanical means, viz. a separate gland. The gland when bolted with the pipe exerts pressure on the sealing rubber gasket and makes the joint leak-proof. The pipe socket provides an exterior flange having bolt holes and an internal socket with annular recess for both the gasket and the mating plain end. Accessories consists of a gasket, a flower gland and tee head bolts with hexagonal nuts.
