New Generation of Refrigeration Pipe Fitting
The Press to fit connect fittings is a quick, reliable installation method assuring a clean and permanent watertight seal. The press to fit system does not require flaring or brazing or expensive crimping connection tools. It requires no heat or open flame.
The press-connect method was patented in Europe in the late 1950s and introduced in the US in late 1990s. The joints rely on the sealing capability of a special fitting that contains an elastomeric gasket or seal (such as EPDM), accommodates systems pressures up to 870 psi and are designed for both HCFC and HFC refrigerants. The connections are constructed of mainly brass and are reusable. The connections have been successfully tested on Variable Refrigerant flow/ Variable Refrigerant Volume applications and have proven its strength when cold worked. The press to fit connect fittings continue to grow acceptance by the users and the excellent result achieved. Press to fit connect fittings is the new generation of refrigeration pipe fitting.
