Yorkshire Xpress Carbon Steel Press Fit Fittings
For use in heating and chilled water applications, XPress Carbon Press Fit fittings are simply compressed onto the tube using a press fit tool. The simplicity of this technique means that press-fit joints can be prepared, assembled and completed in around half the time it would take to make a capillary or screwed steel joint, resulting in significant installed cost savings.
As well as being quick and cost-effective to install, XPress Carbon Systems offer other considerable benefits. There is no need for threading machinery or heavy gauge steel tube to be moved around; and no additional purchases of consumables such as jointing compounds and hemp are required to complete the jointing procedure. Being a heat-free jointing method, no Hot Works Permits are required, reducing costly insurance premiums and avoiding the storage of flammable gases. The clean jointing technique - which uses no solders or additional jointing materials - results in an absence of flux residue, making the flushing process quicker and simpler. XPress Carbon Systems are offered with guarantees of 10 years.
