Lapped joints are dependent


upon the concrete for load
transfer. For this reason, any
degradation in the integrity of
the concrete could
significantly affect the
performance of the joint. The
strength of a mechanical
splice is dependent on the
concrete in which is located.

STEEL REBAR CONGESTION IN STEEL REBAR CONGESTION IN


CONCRETE WITH COUPLERS CONCRETE WITHOUT COUPLERS

BARTEK SYSTEMS ® COUPLER SPLICING SYSTEM


Bartek coupler splicing system is designed for the
connection of steel rebars without torque wrench.

Fast and simple installation to promote productivity and


safety of the connection.

The Bartek coupler spliced connection has a higher


breaking load capacity than the steel rebar: Bar Break
System.

Bar break couplers are recommended in areas with seismic activities. The couplers are available in the
diameters of 12mm to 50mm.

The high strength of the coupler connection is being achieved by cold forging. The upsetted bar end
has a larger core diameter than the bar to ensure that the joint is stronger than the bar itself. Parallel
metric threads are cut on the enlarged ends.

FEATURES
Full strength joint allowing full ductile elongation of
reinforcing bars.
Manual assembly. No torque wrench required.
No risk of cross threading quality control is just by
visual inspection.
Reduce congestion of bars.
Speed up construction time.

This is used where the continuation bar can be
rotated. The end of the bars are upset and threaded
for half length of the coupler.

(1)
Screw the coupler to the rear of the thread on the
fixed bar and lock tight. The bar end should be
central within the coupler.
(2)

Remove the plastic cap from the coupler. Position


and rotate the continuation bar in the coupler.

(3)

Tighten the joint using wrench on the continuation bar.


After tightening there should be more than 2-4mm of the
thread exposed, depending on the diameter of the
rebar.

Bartek Systems ® Type-B


t
2t
This is used where it is not possible to rotate the
2t
continuation bar. Therefore the thread of the
continuation bar is extended to full coupler length.

(1)

Screw the coupler to the rear of the thread on the


continuation bar.
(2)
Position the continuation bar with the coupler against
the end of the first bar.

(3)

Rotate the coupler from the continuation bar to


engage against the rear of the tread on the opposing
bar and lock tight.

(4)
Using wrench, rotate the continuation bar to lock the two bar
ends against each other. After tightening, the length of
exposed thread should not be more than half of the coupler
length plus 2-4mm depending on the diameter of the rebar.

Bartek Systems ® Type-C

t This type has an additional locknut and is used where the


2t
⅔t continuation bar cannot be rotated. The continuation bar is
2 ⅔t threaded for full coupler length plus the length of the
locknut.

(1)

Screw the locknut followed by the coupler to the rear of the


thread on the continuation bar.

(2)

Position the continuation bar with the coupler against the end
of the first bar.

(3)

Rotate the coupler from the continuation bar to engage


against the rear of the thread on the opposing bar and lock
tight.

(4)

Rotate the locknut along the continuation bar.

(5)

Hold the rebar in its required orientation and with a


wrench tighten the locknut against the coupler.

The procedure consists of three steps:
STEP-1 FORGING

 The bars to be joined are cut to the required size


 All machines to be prepared for operation & the supervisor must ensure that all safety
measures are implemented
 The surface of the edge must be vertical to the axial line of the steel bar therefore it could be
ground flat & straight by disc cutter.
 Remove any flexure & inspect the bar for any defect or burr.
 Insert the end of the bar into the cold forging machine, the machine to be operated as per
the instruction in the Bartek machine manuals, (The operator has to read and understand the
instructions & troubleshooting guide before starting the operation, the same is applicable
prior to the operation of the threading machine)
 Inspection of the forged end has to be carried out as per the following proceedures:
1. The size of the ends should be checked against the following table.

gripping mechanism of the threading machine.
 By operating the machine, the cutting head will cut the thread into the end of the forged steel
bar.
 Release the threaded bar from the gripping mechanism.
 Inspection according to the following.

STEP-3 ASSEMBLY

 A coupler needs to be fixed by hand fro one side till-half length of the coupler on the
designated threaded bar & protected with the coupler cap.
 The other threaded rebar to be protected by rebar cap.
 Later the protective caps can be removed from both sides & other bar can be as well
connected by hand.

STEP-1 : PREPARATION

 Select the type of the threading (Left or Right);


 Prepare the machine by installing positive or negative idler wheel rest accordingly, the
supervisor must ensure that all safety measures are implemented.
 The bars to be joined are cut to the required size.
 The surface of the edge must be vertical to the axial line of the steel bar therefore it could be
ground flat & straight by disc cutter.
 Remove any flexure & inspect the bar for any defect or burr.
 Install the end of the bar & clamp it on the machine. (The operator has to read and
understand the instructions and troubleshooting guide before starting the operation)
 Switch on the machine to start the rib peeling process.
 Our Rib Peeling / Direct Roll Threading System can carry out two consecutive process at
once:
i. Produce a smooth surface at the rebar end.
ii. Thereafter, the machine will automatically roll thread the smooth end surface of the
rebar.
 Once finished, the machine will stop & retract the threaded rebar ready to be joined later
with coupler.
 The operator can now release the clamp to extract the bar.
 to the steel bar axial line.

STEP-2 : ASSEMBLY
 The threaded rebar is now ready for joining; a coupler needs to be initially fixed by hand
from one side of the connection till half-length of the coupler on the designated threaded
bar.
 The one side of the connection is ready for use.
To achieve a full spliced connection using Bartek “P” couplers a torque wrench shall be
used:
i. The torque wrench to be adjusted to the required torque.
ii. Turn the threaded bar into the coupler until hand-locked. For verification draw a line
on the bar at the coupler location to verify the number of turns required to lock it by
wrench later.
iii. Tighten with the torque wrench & count the turns until you hear the click sound of the
torque wrench.
iv. Use the same number of turns + 15% as a guide for the same coupler size to be used.
(For example: one & half turns are usually required for Bartek “P” 32mm couplers.)

HYDRAULIC PRESSED COUPLERS


This splicing method is recommended for the connection of the existing non-threaded rebars with
other rebars; threading is not necessary.

STEP-1 :

 Prepare the existing rebars, the surface of the edge must be vertical to the axial line of the
steel bar therefore it could be ground flat & straight by disc cutter.
 Remove any flexure & inspect the bar for any defect or burr.
 The machine to be prepared & operated as per the instruction in the Bartek “H” machine
manual, (The operator has to read and understand the instruction & troubleshooting guide
before starting the operation):
i. Check pressure gauge to ensure proper function.
ii. By means of chalk & ruler, mark the press line where the sleeve will be fixed.
 Install on the upper (the new) rebar half section of the sleeve.
 With the specific mold fixed on the hydraulic press, apply three consecutive presses on the
half section of the sleeve, now the sleeve is fixed on the side of the new rebar.
 Join the new rebar with the open sleeve side to connect it with the existing rebar.
 Apply again three presses with the hydraulic on the other side of the sleeve to ensure full
splice.
