MLC pipe Fittings & Tools Concept
Uponors range of fittings, consisting of couplings, elbows, tees and a large number of other system components leaves nothing to be desired: Pressing or screwing – both methods can be used to ensure a permanently tight connection. With the advanced press fitting generation, Uponor is offering a multi-layer composite pipe system with reliable test safety. The fitting is designed so that pressure testing reveals non-pressed connections which would discharge water – a smart system designed for your safety. An additional bonus is the clever range of tools for fast and convenient installation.
Connection By Screwing
Uponor screw fittings are available for diameters from 12 to 25 mm and fit all Uponor nipples, elbows, tees, transitions and manifolds. For example, a tee can be formed into a reducing tee by combining various different sized pipe screw fittings with identical threads. The system reduces warehousing costs and facilitates ordering procedures.
Connection By Pressing
Press fittings are available for all practical applications. Press fittings of tin plated brass are available for all sizes from 12 to 75 mm. The system also includes composite fittings of PPSU in the sizes 16 to 32 mm. Specially developed clamp fittings are available for diameters 90 and 110mm.
Pressure sleeve of metal fittings
The pressure sleeve for dim. 16-32 mm of high quality aluminium is permanently connected with the fitting body. That means the O-rings are protected against mechanical effects during transport and handling. The integrated window enables a check to be made during installation to see whether the pipe is correctly inserted.
Uponor Pressing Tools
Uponor pressing jaws are designed specially for use in conjunction with Uponor electrical and battery-operated pressing tools.
In case pressing tools of other make will be used the respective manufacturer should be contacted in order to approve the qualification, warranty and operational safety.
A range of clever tools from pipe cutters to bevelling tools rounds off the MLC pipe system.
