The R40-TU is a metal conveyor union used to connect two rails that are cut and interrupted by a perpendicular pipe. This product lets you keep a straight line. You would otherwise need to use two R40-MS side by side. However, this is not always ideal if you have two rails close to each other.

Unlike the metal conveyor mounts, the R40-TU requires no drilling. It is an easy product to install that can save your design in many situations. This union will not slow down the containers, because the space connecting the two rails is small enough not to impact the movement velocity.

This part is galvanized and was designed to work with a 28mm tube and two Flexpipe rails. If you want to connect two rails that are not interrupted by a pipe, be sure to take a look at the R40-TC page which is probably a better option for this situation.
