The Benefits of Yorkshire Xpress Press Fit Fittings

Updated: Sep 14




Yorkshire Xpress Press Fit Fittings XPress press fit fittings from Pegler Yorkshire make copper pipe jointing easier, faster and more cost effective. The fittings simply press together in seconds to create a perfect joint, every time. They can be pressed with either a set of manual pressing tongs or for larger numbers a radial pressing machine. They are ideal for fast, efficient jointing of copper tube to BS EN 1057 R250 and R290 and available in sizes 12mm-108mm.

So what are the benefits?

  • XPress fittings are WRAS and DVGW approved

  • No soldering or adhesive is used when jointing Xpress

  • Less finishing & cleaning is required due to the clean internal bore of the fitting

  • Pipe and fitting can be wet when jointing

  • Used for new build and large-scale public sector projects as well as domestic installation

  • Savings can be made over more traditional jointing methods

  • No naked flames mean improved safety

  • No carbon deposits, solder runs or flux residue means less risk of corrosion


They have WRAS Approval The XPress stainless steel System is designed to give optimum performance and cost savings for commercial and industrial potable water applications. To meet this requirement all XPress Copper and XPress Stainless Steel fittings are tested to ensure they comply with the United Kingdom Water Regulations.

They have a 25 Year Guarantee The XPress Copper, XPress Gas, XPress Stainless Gas and XPress Solar ranges are guaranteed against all manufacturing defects for 25 years

They have an LBP Feature - Leak before press A fail Safe Feature for XPress Copper press-fit fittings First, the unique patented fitting creates three leak paths without compromising the "O" ring seal. Second, the LBP feature means that any assembled but un-pressed joints will leak during testing and can therefore be easily identified. This can save time in commissioning and prevent subsequent site visits.

They are Available XPress Copper fittings are available in sizes from 15mm to 108mm for use in water, heating and chilled applications. Fittings are compressed onto the tube using a manual press-fit tool, or radial pressing tongs. This process is a heat-free operation that uses no solders or additional jointing materials. Xpress press-fit joints can be prepared, assembled and completed in half the time it takes to make a capillary or screwed steel joint.


There is Lots of Choice

Xpress Copper For use on hot and cold water services, vented and unvented closed circuit heating, chilled water and oil free compressed air

Xpress Stainless Steel Designed for potable water applications where water quality and hygiene are crucial, particularly in the food, pharmaceutical and health care industries.

Xpress Carbon Steel For use in heating and chilled water applications. XPress fittings achieve a sound joint through the exertion of pressure from a press-fit tool; a purpose designed ‘O’ ring provides the mechanism by which a perfect seal is created. The whole XPress range guarantees electrical continuity once the joints are pressed. Guarantees
