The new transition fitting made of plastic and metal was originally developed for industrial refrigeration technology. In frosting and defrosting processes, refrigerating plants are subjected to temperature fluctuations that can cause the material to expand. The innovative jointing technology of O-ring and retaining ring compensates this, while also preventing the connection from coming loose when there is vibration – essential in pipe systems with pumps. Retightening after installation is no longer necessary. The wide seat of the metal part enables secure mounting of the fitting with conventional installation tools.
Product Manager Peter Waefler, GF Piping Systems, is convinced that this revolutionary technology provides an extra dose of safety in industrial installations.
