Europress Pipe is available in O.D. tube sizes - 15, 22, 28, 35, 42, 54, 76.1, 88.9 and 108 Standard 16 Bar/232 psi pressure rating. Up to 40 Bar/580psi available on approved applications.
The pipe is pushed into the fitting, up to the stop, then the jaw attachments of the pressing tool press the toroidal end of the fitting into the pipe.
Pressing produces two deformations. The first, radial deformation, compresses the 0-ring in the toroidal chamber and guarantees that the pipe is hermetically sealed. The second, geometric deformation of both fitting and pipe, creates a mechanical joint, resistant to slipping and rotation.
- Up to 10 times faster than conventional Tig welding techniques. No need to completely drain pipe contents prior to alterations. Fittings can be crimped wet or dry
- Pressing Tool with inbuilt safety features ensures each press is the same every time, no uncertainty of weld integrity
