"Don't Weld, Don't Thread, Press"

Pressfit fittings are an established and cost effective way to install piping systems easily. With no threading, welding, or soldering to be done, the system provides tight leak free joints using a simple, portable press tool. Installed costs are lower than traditional methods, and the unique, "Leak on Test" seal design, ensures finished system integrity.

There are a number of material options available depending on specific applications.

Steelpres press fittings are made of carbon steel E195 n 1.004 up to 108mm od. A galvanic zinc coating protects against external corrosion. Steelpres fittings are indelibly marked in red with the manufacturers name, diameter and internal code. A black EPDM sealing ring is fitted into formed ends of the steelpres fittings.

Inoxpres press fittings are manufactured from high-alloyed austenitic stainless Cr-Ni-Mo steel n 1.4404 (AISI 316L). The fittings are marked with laser recording the manufacturers name, diameter, DVGW test symbol and internal code. The formed ends of the pressed fittings are fitted with black EPDM seal ring as standard for potable water applications.

Aespres press fittings are made of DHP Cu-DHP 99.9 (CW024A) copper and in CuSn5Zn5Pb2 (CC499K) bronze from 12 to 54mm. Aespres fittings are indelibly marked with a laser system with the manufacturers name, diameter, DVGW control brand and an internal code. A black EPDM o-ring is standard.

Making a Pressfit joint is simple, but using the correct tools is essential to ensure a perfect joint.
