New ProPEX® offering allows even more opportunities to transition to PEX in commercial piping applications.
Apple Valley, Minn., 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.
