PP Compression Pipe Fitting
What is the difference between PVC and pp compression Pipe fittings ?
However, PP is 100% recyclable. It can be ground, then melted and reused in another application many times over. PVC, however, is less easily recyclable than PP. Due to the high chlorine content in PVC, as well as other hazardous additives, PVC recycling requires additional processes.
PP-R is durable and chemically inert and will not react with water or many dissolved chemicals in water. PP-R is resistant to corrosion, scaling, and erosion—three major causes of long-term piping failure. Unlike copper and many plastics, PP-R piping and its connections will not leach harmful chemicals.
Material: Black polypropylene Wall thickness: 0.4 mm Reinforcement: Steel wire helix Lightweight, very flexible hose of good chemical and UV radiation resistance; halogen-free.
Compression fitting assemblies vary in design from manufacturer to manufacturer, but are all made up of the same three basic elements: a compression nut or screw, one or more ferrules, and a compression fitting body.
There are two types of compression fitting, standard (British type-A/non-manipulative) and flare fittings (British type-B/manipulative). Standard fittings require no modifications to the tubing. Flare fittings require modification of the tubing with a special tool.
