REHAU has added 26 fittings to its EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fitting system for plumbing and hydronic piping connections. The connection technology is designed for use with REHAU RAUPEX® crosslinked polyethylene (PEXa) pipe in up to 2-inch diameter.
Offered in polymer and lead-free brass, EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings are designed with four sealing edges and textured PEXa sleeves that grip tightly over both the pipe and fitting. Company reps said the connections are made quickly using the battery-powered EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve tools and a consistent, two-step expansion/compression process.
Completed joints are immediately secure and ready for pressure testing.
