Conex Bänninger, a global leader in the design and manufacture of fittings, valves and accessories, are showcasing its extensive product range at The Big 5 International Building and Construction Show in Dubai.
The products displayed are the flame-free >B< MaxiPro press-fit solution for ACR copper pipe joints. The >B< MaxiPro range has been developed specifically for air-conditioning and refrigeration applications and features Conex Bänninger’s >B< profile 3-point press system to provide a reliable, permanent and leak-free joint that can be completed more quickly than the traditional brazing method.
Also on the show will be the company’s user-friendly and quick-to-install >B< Press copper fittings, which have the benefit of Conex Bänninger’s leak before press indicator feature, a specially designed EPDM O-ring.
The O-ring 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, ensuring a leak-free joint.
Therefore, there is no need to go to a full test pressure to check that all fittings have been pressed. This >B< Press feature is available in fittings sized 15-54mm and is suitable for hot and cold water applications.
Business unit director Richard Franks said: “The Gulf is an important and developing market, and as the largest construction event in the Middle East the Big 5 Dubai provides an excellent opportunity for us to promote the many advantages of Conex Bänninger’s wide range of products. We look forward to building relationships with potential new customers, as well as meeting our existing partners in the region.”
