Non-ferrous semi-finished products

A good price and swift availability are two important requirements where non-ferrous semi-finished products are concerned. Roba Metals combines this with a market approach which takes into account your requirements, for example the reduction of risks associated with the buyer's procurement. The constantly changing metal prices on the commodity markets require swift interaction.

>B< Press Carbon Steel: Unique O-Ring Design

Conex >B< Press Carbon fittings are user friendly and very quick to install, leading to savings on labour costs. It also offers the advantage of a flame free installation, therefore posing no fire risk. Conex >B< Press Carbon is a versatile press fitting system for use on Carbon tubes in accordance with EN 10305-3.
Our >B< Press Carbon is installed, with a mechanical press tool with a compatible jaw with a >B< profile to fit each size of fitting required. When pressure is exerted through the press tool the joint is permanently made and the fitting cannot be dismounted or re-used. The >B< Press Carbon system eliminates the need for solder, adhesives or additional jointing materials. The >B< profile has the advantage of a 3 Point Press, two mechanical presses either side of the bead and one hydraulic press crimping the o-ring. This provides a more secure joint.

Pressing Indicator Feature

IBP has developed a unique pressing indicator, a specially designed EPDM O-ring. It has a reduced section in two positions causing leaks at low pressures when not pressed (from 0.1 to 5.0 bar). When the fitting is pressed, the o-ring material compresses, filling the gaps, securing a leak-free path.
Therefore there is no need to go to full test pressure to check that all fittings have been pressed. This >B< Press Carbon feature is available in fittings sized 12-108mm and suitable for HVAC, hot and cold applications.
