BSI Kitemark for BS 8537:2010

Temperature  -20°C to 110°C
Available in sizes from 12mm-108mm.

Yorkshire XPress Pressfit plumbing fittings have a specifically designed ‘O’ ring that offers a secure seal. The leak free joint is closed by pressure applied by a pressfit tool, for example a Pressing Machine.

When connected, any joints that have not been assembled properly will show small leaks. The system highlights any joints that need to be examined and corrected before the system can be used.

There is no solder or heat applied to the joints the seal is formed by machine or hand pressure with a tool. All Pegler XPress Systems are assembled in this way and as a result there is little chance of heat damaging the seal.
