Europress Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel Press Fit Piping System is the revolutionary piping system which is leading the way in steel piping in New Zealand’s Industrial and Agricultural piping. The speed at which Europress can be installed, the integrity of each joint, and the massive labour savings elevate Europress to an industry leading piping system. Designed and manufactured in Europe by a manufacturer with over 40 years industry experience the precision of each fitting has lead Europress to be recognised as supreme in quality piping systems. Millions of Europress fittings are produced each year, all meeting the required quality standards. Europress is; EFFICIENT, EASY & EFFORTLESS.

Europress comes with a 25 Year manufacturer backed product guarantee.

The adoption of rigorous quality control has meant the Europress Press fittings conform to the most severe European and Australian certification. Accreditation has been awarded by premium testing authorities in Australia, Austria, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

Europress 316 stainless steel meets the exacting Australian Watermark testing for drinking water, it is also approved for Gas and Fire services.

Benefits & Applications

  • Speed of installation – Europress is up to 10 times faster to install than conventional steel piping systems resulting in savings of up to 30% on a project.

  • Reliability in every joint – Each Europress joint is pressed with the exact required torque to ensure each joint is pressed to perfection.

  • Competent installers can install Europress reducing the need for expensive highly specialised welders – another immense labour saving.

  • High Safety – each joint is pressed using a hand held 18V crimp tool, eliminating the need for gas bottles, hoses and naked flame which also means no hot work permits are required.

  • Europress is used by a full spectrum of industry including: Defence, mining, manufacturing, food processors, pharmaceutical, water treatment, automotive industry, wineries, abattoirs, hospitals, universities and TAFEs, oil and gas processing.

Specifications

Water Applications

The Europress System in stainless steel is the ideal solution for installing drinking water system as the AISI 316L stainless steel used is completely hygienic and highly corrosion resistant, its reliable, high-quality components also make it suitable for heating, cooling, compressed air and fire-extinguishing systems in the civil, industrial and marine sectors.

The standard O-rings made of black EPDM, are resistant to aging, heat and chemical additives and are therefore particularly suitable for all types of treated water.

Conditions of use

  • Maximum operating pressure: 16 bar

  • Operating temperature: -20°C + 95°C

  • Maximum temperature: 120°C on approved applications.

The Europress System has been granted the prestigious VdS-certification for fire extinguisher systems according to VdS CEA 4001. It applies to both carbon steel products (for which it has already been granted) and to stainless steel products having diameter 22mm – 108mm.

Gas Applications

The Europress system is approved in several European countries for use in gas distribution systems, with external above-ground pipes, installed inside or outside buildings. It can be used for all types of combustible gas, both natural and liquid.

The O-ring gaskets are made of yellow HNBR, and as such, are compatible with any of the gas varieties used and are resistant to ageing and heat.

Conditions of use

  • Maximum operating pressure: 5 bar

  • Operating temperature: -20°C + 70°C

Carbon Steel Various Applications

The Europress system in carbon steel is indicated for use in various types of civil and industrial installations where stainless steel pipework is not essential.

Typical applications are:

  • Closed-circuit heating and cooling water systems

  • Compressed air and inert gas systems

  • Sprinkler systems

The O-ring gaskets, made of black EPDM, are resistant to ageing, hear and chemical additives and are therefore particularly suitable for all types of treated water.

Conditions of use

  • Maximum operating pressure: 16 bar

  • Operating temperature: -20°C + 85°C

  • Maximum temperature: 120°C on approved applications.
