Pegler Yorkshire enhances performance of compression fittings
Pegler Yorkshire claims to have improved the performance of compression fittings for plumbing with its Kuterlite K900-Pro fitting. By revisiting the design characteristics of the compression nut and remodelling it, Pegler Yorkshire has enhanced engineering safety. Made to exceed the requirements of BS EN 1254-2, Kuterlite-Pro is recommended for all applications where the K900 was previously used, but particularly comes into its own in specialist areas such as chilled water.
The first of the top four modifications is the forged nut, reducing residual stress better than ever before. The wall thickness has been increased to exceed BS EN 1254-2 by 50%. The nut is wider across the flats to suit the most common metric spanner types. Finally, the height of the nut flat has been increased to give greater contact.
The fitting also has a new internal profile to help ensure the olive deforms correctly every time.
