UDT-Lynx is a robust connector for conductor. It is the simplest type of connector to run, requiring no special tools or personnel. The connector is designed to meet the bending capabilities of the mating pipe body and be piled.
All UDT-Lynx models stab easily, self-align axially and assemble under the weight of the joint. When the box is stabbed over the pin, joint weight expands the lock ring, the abutment faces meet and the lock-ring snaps closed. Full make up is visually confirmed by inspection of the lock-ring. UDT-Lynx Connectors disengage by running jacking bolts through the lock-ring to release the pin.
UDT-Lynx connectors are typically made from high strength alloy steel (100-ksi yield). Alternate material options are available on request.
