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 Gas, 3 Point Press for Gas Applications

Conex >B< Press Gas fittings for natural gas and LPG application are identified by a yellow coloured o-ring. >B< Press Gas is a versatile press fitting system for use with hard, half-hard and soft copper tube, providing a secure, long-life, leak-proof joint. They are available in Copper and Red Brass and are suitable for use with copper tube to EN 1057.
Our >B< Press Gas 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 Gas 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 HNBR O-ring. It has a reduced section in two positions causing leaks at low pressures when not. 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 Gas feature is available in fittings sized 15-54mm and suitable for gas, compressed air with and without oil content and oil applications.
