Conex Bänninger adds stainless steel option to its innovative >B< Press range

Published:  15 July, 2015

Plumbing fittings manufacturer Conex Bänninger is pleased to announce the launch of the new >B< Press Inox range. 

The addition of a stainless steel press fitting both completes and complements the Conex Bänninger range of >B< Press fittings, and gives the contractor and specifier a comprehensive choice for applications in copper, carbon, red brass and now stainless steel providing contractors and installers a complete range of press fitting solutions.

>B< Press Inox is manufactured using hygienic materials making it suitable for potable water, and with it’s famous >B< profile can be used in almost all new, and existing domestic supply systems. This flame-free press fitting can also be used for hot and cold drinking water applications, cooling water, heating systems, compressed air (oil free), oil/fuel, rainwater and waste. Offering contractors and installer’s more application options.

As with all >B< Press fittings, >B< Press Inox is quick and simple to install saving time and money and is compatible with a variety of tools and jaws. Conex Bänninger >B< Press offers installers a fail-safe function to check the systems for leak using the unique pressing indicator ensuring there is no need to go to full test pressure.

The fittings are specifically designed with a high-quality EPDM seal with a reduced section on two positions causing leaks when not pressed (from 0.1 bar). Un-pressed joints can then be quickly identified and corrected saving valuable time. When the fitting is pressed, the O-Ring material compresses itself to form a permanent, leak free joint. Giving installers not only peace of mind during installation but significant savings on time and labor.

>B< Press requires no hot work license or additional jointing materials for installation making it quick and easy to install than traditional joints.

In addition, the leading edge design feature makes fitting easier by ensuring the pipe is parallel to the fitting before contact with the O-Ring, thereby greatly reducing the chance of damage to the O-Ring during assembly.

“The >B< Press Inox range is the perfect addition to our portfolio of press fittings," commented Richard Darwin Sales & Marketing Director at Conex Bänninger, "offering our customers and clients a complete range of >B< Press solution.

>B< Press Inox is designed and manufactured by Conex Bänninger and as such carries the quality assurances of being compliant to EN10312, WRAS, KIWA and DVGW, as well as a long term warranty.

The fittings are available in 15 – 54 mm, and can be offered as a full system with Press Inox steel tubes. The >B< Press Inox tube system uses precision steel tubes manufactured to AISI 3161, AISI 444 and is also available as a nickel-free alternative.
