Solder Ring Fittings:
Solder Ring Fittings are pre-soldered capillary connectors used in plumbing and are ideal for hot, cold water systems and Gas Systems.
These type of fittings are particularly usefull when fitting pipes in confined spaces…
To obtain perfect joints, the inside of the fitting and the outside of the copper pipe are cleaned using coarse steel wool, flux paste is applied, the pipe is inserted into the fitting and heat applied from a portable propane torch until a ring of solder shows at the edges of the fitting. To obtain a durable joint, water must not be poured on the solder joint to cool it. Fittings are now made with lead-free solder.
This is a simple and cost effective method of jointing copper tubes to standard EN 1057.
Suitable for use above ground and on hot or cold domestic and commercial systems
The fittings come in a great variety of configurations, such as Tee-pieces, straight couplers, elbows or bends, reducers (to join pipes of different diameters), stop-ends, and there are versions with screw threads (male or female) at one end to fit taps and galvanized iron pipes.
