HUSKY high-performance heavy-duty couplings still the leader There are two reasons more HUSKY no-hub couplings are installed than all other brands of heavy-duty couplings combined — quality and peace of mind. “When an engineer specifies a coupling or a contractor puts one in, the last thing they want is a headache,” says Bill Kenney, president of Anaco in Corona, Calif. Heavy-duty couplings generally are only specified for critical applications where solid reliability is a top priority. More engineers and plumbing designers choose HUSKY because they know the product will perform as expected with no problems. Contractors appreciate HUSKY because they know there will be no callbacks and customers will be more than satisfied with the installation. For most plumbing professionals, HUSKY is simply the only choice. 100% MADE IN AMERICA HUSKY couplings are made in the USA of the finest materials available. Gaskets are molded from genuine neoprene (the primary elastomer) and have been field-proven for decades to stand up to the challenges of harsh effluents without breaking down. The shield, clamps and screws are made from Series 300 stainless steel and are guaranteed to be corrosion resistant. A COUPLING FOR EVERY APPLICATION In addition to the HUSKY high-performance heavy-duty coupling, the HUSKY valueengineered coupling also is available for use in applications that still require a heavy-duty product but may not call for the same level of protection as provided by the high-performance option. Lastly, standard-duty couplings have been third-partytested and certified by NSF International to meet the CISPI 310 standard and remain among the best-selling couplings on the market today. “We make the product to meet whatever the need may be,” Kenney says. “If you need a standard coupling, we have that. If you need a heavy-duty coupling, we make two styles. We think we’re pretty responsive to the needs of the market.” THE COMPANY BEHIND THE HUSKY Based in Corona, Calif., Anaco remains the premier producer of stainless-steel couplings and service-weight gaskets in America. With production facilities in Corona and Marshfield, Mo., Anaco maintains the production capacity to meet most any demand. Anaco couplings are available through distributors in all 50 states. Unlike producers of other couplings made overseas or domestically, Anaco manufactures all the components that go into the couplings it produces. For example, special molding machines take raw neoprene, melt it, and use it to form the couplings found in standard and HUSKY couplings. An aggressive quality-control program at Anaco requires these gaskets meet the most rigorous requirements. The same commitment to quality that goes into the molding of gaskets also is found in the production of the stainless-steel bands and shields. Rolls of high-quality Series 300 stainless steel are converted into these bands and corrugated shields right in the Anaco production plants where finished products are inspected and tested to ensure product integrity. Components and parts that don’t meet the standard are discarded, with only the very best couplings passing through to the shipping department for transport to customers. “I’ve been in this business a long time,” Kenney says, “and I can honestly say we make a better product than our competition. I know I may be biased, but it’s absolutely true.” The thousands of engineers, specifiers and contractors that prefer Anaco to all other brands would agree. That’s why they choose the leader, Husky.
