PPR fittings connect pipe runs, direct flow and integrate components to enable high-performance PPR plumbing. Their versatility allows them to serve residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural fluid transportation needs with a wide range of advantages, including chemical resistance, durability, energy efficiency and easy installation. Correct fitting selection is critical to ensuring optimal function and tight sealing for decades of service.
How to Use PPR Fittings
Ppr pipe fittings are based on Beta polypropylene random (PPR) system and assembled by heat fusion welding. The process melts the ends of pipes and fittings together to form a solid, leak free joint that can withstand pressure fluctuations and temperature variations. Using PPR pipes and fittings eliminates the need for cement, reducing labor costs, time and effort while delivering a more reliable, long lasting system.
Heat fusion is quick and easy, with a simple installation that is a fraction of the time required for threaded or cemented connections. In addition, pressed joints are strong and tamper-proof. Compared to other systems, PPR is more durable, resistant to corrosion and abrasion, and able to withstand hard water containing salts and acids.
PPR pipe and fittings are widely used for domestic water installations, as well as heating systems. They are also a great choice for many chemical applications due to their excellent corrosion and chemical resistance. They are insulated, which prevents heat loss and ensures that the pipe remains at a stable temperature. PPR’s low bidirectional thermal conductivity helps preserve the energy and temperature of flowing fluids and reduces piping insulation costs. ppr fittings
