Compression-sleeve Fitting System
By HPAC MagazineHydronics
REHAU has introduced the EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fitting system. Designed for use with RAUPEX UV shield PEXa pipe in potable water applications, the system features polymer and lead-free brass fittings in diameters up to 2 in., as well as the EVERLOC+ power tool. Connections are made using a two-step expansion and compression process, both performed by the power tool. First, the pipe is expanded, then the sleeve is actively compressed over the pipe and fitting for a secure connection that is immediately ready for pressure testing.
