Socket and spigot joints : This type of joint is mainly used for cast iron pipes of all sizes and concrete pipes below 60 cm in diameter.

Flanged joint : This joint is mostly used for temporary work.

Heera said: (Sep 25, 2019)  
Expansion joint : This joint is adopted at places where pipes expand or contracts due to variation in atmospheric temperature.

Dresser coupling : The Dresser coupling consists of one cylindrical middle ring, two follower rings, two resilient gaskets made up of a special Dresser compound and a set of steel track head bolts. Without them, a flexible joint is not possible.

Flexible joint : This joint is used at such places where settlement is likely to occur after laying of the pipe.
