>B< MaxiPro enables fast, safe and secure press fitting to benefit the acr industry.
Intended for use with hard, half hard or annealed copper tube conforming to either EN 12735-1 or ASTM-B280, >B< MaxiPro ensures a permanent and secure leak-proof joint for acr applications up to 48 bar.
The security of the joint is the result of Conex Bänninger's three-point press technology. This comprises three press points, with one on each side of the bead and one press compressing the O-ring.
Quick and simple to use, >B< MaxiPro will significantly reduce installation time and costs in a market which is currently dominated by traditional braze fittings.
Mano Bakhtiari, chief executive of Conex Bänninger's parent company, IBP Group, acknowledged the advantages of the press fitting system: “It’s the future of acr, making the job for engineers easier and safer.”
With >B< MaxiPro, Conex Bänninger hopes to raise awareness of these benefits and push for a conversion to press fitting in the acr industry.
Mr Bakhtiari continued: “Leading the industry forward, we welcome competition to join us; there is still a lot to be done and it’s the tip of the iceberg.”
>B< MaxiPro is approved for use with a total of 19 refrigerants, including R1234yf, R1234ze, R32, R134a, R404A, R407C, R407F, R410A, and R507.
It is available in a host of fittings types, including Straight Coupler, Reducing Coupler, Fitting Reducer, 90° Bend, 90° Street Bend, 45° Obtuse Elbow, Equal Tee and Stop End variants.
