Press Fittings

Every press fitting has an elastomeric O-ring located near each open end to make a seal onto tubing. The tubing is first pushed into the fitting: the O-ring is designed to be a loose push-fit on the tubing. A permanent seal is then made using a special clamp, which presses three projections onto the fitting, thus permanently deforming the end of the fitting. After pressing, the rubber O-ring is clamped tightly between the tube and the fitting making a permanent leak-free joint.

The electrically powered tool, with various sizes of clamps, is available from Lancashire Fittings, either to hire by the week or to purchase.
