Over the past 50 years, traditional pipes and fittings have come a long way. From welded copper pipes and fittings to compression brass fittings and more recently push-fit systems. The advancement in technology, materials and application taking one step forward each time. The introduction of pipe and press fittings dates back 20 years. The need for a lighter, safer and more practical way of plumbing compared to traditional copper was necessary.
Press-fitting technology and multi-layer tubing were seen as the way to go. Offering more than 50% speed in installation time and 30% less accessories required when compared to other conventional systems.
With the increased demand for high quality multilayer piping and pressure fittings, EGB introduces a Multilayer system. A complete range of pressure fittings and multilayer piping. Our system is available in high quality brass: CW617N.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
- Drinking water pipe networks to supply cold and hot water in buildings.
- Pipe networks for air conditioning equipment.
- Pipe networks for heating systems.
- Pipe networks for solar energy installations. Compressed air networks.
The PF Press multilayer pipe is made up of 5 layers consisting of an inner and outer PERT layer, a central layer of aluminum, joined together by two layers of adhesive. The aluminum layer is butt welded to give a complete oxygen barrier. Compared to other traditional systems, the PF Press System offers significant advantages.
- Quick and safe installation.
- Easy piping installation, simply bend and adjust, thus fewer accessories.
- No welding or threading.
- No copper, no theft.
- Corrosion free.
- No guesswork, the press tool will know the degree of tension.
- High pressure and temperature resistance.
- Resistance to stress cracking and fracturing, as well as impact shock.
- Effective response to water hammer that may occur.
- Light weight, making it easy to install and transport.
- Easy flexing without loss of stiffness.
- Can be used with all types of water.
- Smooth inner surface, thus avoiding the accumulation of scale.
- Corrosion resistant.
- Very low thermal expansion; much lower than in plastic pipes.
- Minimum expansion length.
- Resistant to pressure and temperature.
- They do not alter the taste or smell of the water.
- They do not conduct electricity.
- Excellent acoustic insulation.
