The fittings of System KAN-therm Steel are made of the same material as the pipes:
- RSt 34–2 carbon steel, material number 1.0034 as per DIN EN 10305–3.
Similarly to pipes, fittings are also secured against corrosion with a layer of galvanized zinc-plating applied on the external surfaces of all elements.
The "Press" technology applied in System KAN-therm Steel makes it possible to quickly make reliable joints by pressing the connectors with generally available crimping tools, eliminating the need to bolt or weld individual system elements. Thanks to this solution, the process of assembling an installation, even with large-diameter pipes and fittings, is reduced to the absolute minimum.
Joining system elements in the "Press" technology makes it possible to obtain joints with minimum pipe cross-section narrowing, which considerably reduces pressure loss in the entire installation and produces excellent hydraulic conditions.
Tightness and reliability of joints in System KAN-therm Steel is guaranteed by special O-ring seals and the four-point "M" type crimping system.
Resistance to high pressure and temperature
The fittings of System KAN-therm Steel are equipped with special O-ring seals as standard. Depending on the operating parameters required for the system and the type of medium transported, fittings may be equipped with two types of O-rings: EPDM (factory-mounted), and FPM/Viton (replaced by the customer).
All fittings of System KAN-therm Steel are equipped with the LBP function (signalling unpressed joints).
LBP - Leak Before Press "unpressed = not tight"
unpressed joints are not tight and therefore easy to locate.
The LBP function is performed by specially designed O-rings. Thanks to the special grooves, LBP O-rings make it possible to easily check the joints during the pressure test - unpressed joints will leak.
Ball valves are intended for direct assembly on System KAN-therm pipelines using the radial pressing technology in profile "M".
There are available 2 versions:
A. Stub pipes pressed on both sides
B. Pressed-on stub pipes and half union with flat sealing
