Coupler M and ME (Floating Anchorage)
Rotation symmetric structures (water tanks, digestor tanks, large pipes or dome shells) that require circumferential Post-Tensioning are the principal applications for the floating coupler M/ME. The tendon anchorage consists of an anchorage block with wedge holes on both sides to accept bare or greased and sheathed strands. The strands actually overlap in the block and use the belt-buckle principle. The ring-tendon is very compact and requires a very small pocket only.

Coupler P consists of a multiplane anchor body, the standard wedge plate and a coupler ring that accepts the continuing strands with swaged anchorages instead of wedges. For similar applications, both coupler R and P can be installed alternatively.
