KAN-therm: Connectors/fittings



Connectors/fittings

Tube couplings are provided with pressed-on tips with an O-ring seal or pressed-on tips with a female or male thread to PN-EN10226-1: 

  • knees, elbows and tees, pipe connectors,

  • threaded connectors type GZ and GW and screw joints,

  • approaches to receivers and fittings/fixtures,

Fittings are made of alloy steel (chromium-nickel-molybdenum) #1.4404, AISI 316L.

 

Sealings (O-rings)

The standard version of KAN-therm Inox and Inox System fittings is provided with EPDM rubber O-rings satisfying the PN-EN 681-1 requirements. For special applications they are delivered with Viton O-rings.

The table gives working parameters and application range for these fittings:

All the fittings of KAN-therm Inox System within 15-108 mm dimensions contain LBP function (unsealed connections alert -  LBP-Leak Before Press).

Within 15-54 mm dimensions the function is realized by a specially designed O-rings. With a special grooves LBP O-rings provide optimal control over connections during the pressure test. Unsealed connections are leaky and therefore easy to locate.

 

Within 76,1 - 108 mm dimensions the LBP function is realized by an appropriate shape of fitting (pipe connector ovalisation).

 

 

 

The life of Inox system O-rings was tested by the DVGW Institute and according to these test this life should not be shorter than 50 years.
