5 things that you didn't know about pressing units

pressing units
  • 1. PRESS JAWS

    Use press jaws for metal pipe systems of diameter between 12 and 35 mm.

  • 2. CHAINS AND ADAPTERS

    To press metal pipe systems of diameters greater than 42 mm it is recommended to use adapter and chains.

    Why chain and not jaw:

    • better load distribution
    • better resistance to pressure and torsion
    • easier positioning of the chain around the fitting
    • greater uniformity of the pressing geometry (reduced ovalization)

  • 3. MAINTENANCE

    Chains, press jaws, adapters and equipment must be subjected to periodic maintenance by a specialized center as specified in the installation standards.

  • 4. PRESSING UNITS PISTON FORCE

    Medium power pressing units (32 kN) that can be used on the entire FRABO fittings range (12 mm - 108 mm) are available on the market.

    However other machines have higher power (45 kN and more).

  • 5. DIAMETER OF THE PIPES

    Each pressing unit presents different limits on the maximum diameter of the tube pressable.

    Always check the specifications.
