Uponor offers new brass transition fittings for hydronic piping systems
New ProPEX™ offering allows even more opportunities to transition to PEX in commercial piping applications.
Apple Valley, MN, Oct. 18, 2016 — Targeted for commercial hydronic heating and cooling systems, Uponor North America (Uponor) is now offering code-listed, commercial-grade, ProPEX™ brass transition fittings in sizes from ½” to 2″.
“Using these new brass transition fittings with Uponor’s Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe is a very durable, cost-effective solution for transporting water to HVAC terminal units,” says Mark Hudoba, director, Heating and Cooling at Uponor.
The complete offering, which is manufactured from high-quality, C36000 brass, includes 31 transition fittings that convert ProPEX connections to male thread, female thread, copper tubing sweat, copper fitting sweat and copper fitting press. Note that because these are C36000 brass fittings, they are not for potable applications.
