Chrome Compression plumbing fittings
Conex Compression fittings are especially advantageous in retrofit plumbing schemes, where space is confined and/or the use of heat must be avoided. They are available in 6-108mm and are suitable for connecting tubes in accordance with EN 1057 and many other standards including ISO 274.
Conex unique ribbed capnuts are supplied in 15-28mm. Sizes 6-12 and 35-54mm are supplied with octagonal capnuts. Fittings in 66.7-108mm incorporate loose compression plates, where tightening is through six 3/8" BSW nuts and allthreads. PTFE tape is not required for the installation process.
Conex Compression fittings are available in duplex brass and/or dezincification resistant (DZR) brass or as dezincification immune gunmetal. Fittings are also available nickel-plated or chrome plated in accordance with EN 248.
