Product Overview

Instantor Press System consists of multilayer press fittings and pipe.

Instantor Press Fittings

NSAI Certified to EN ISO 21003 and WRAS approved. Instantor® Press fittings are manufactured using the same high-grade CW617N brass as our market leading range of INSTANTOR® Brass Compression fittings. Every fitting features two EPDM O rings on each connection which, when pressed correctly, delivers a water-tight seal in seconds. Quick to install in three simple steps – Cut, Calibrate & Press, saving on time and costs as less fittings are required when compared with traditional plumbing methods. INSTANTOR® Press fittings are designed for use in sanitary water supply and heating systems.

Max Operating Pressure: 10 bar

Max Operating Temperature: 95°C

Max Peak Temperature (at 1 hour): 110°C

The above specs relate to Instantor Press Fittings combined with Instantor Pex-Al-Pex Pipe

Instantor Pex-Al-Pex

Instantor® Pex-al-Pex (PE-xB/AL/PE-xB) is a multilayer pipe NSAI Certified to EN ISO 21003 and WRAS approved, combining all the advantages of metal and plastic pipe.

The pipe is constructed with a double inner and outer layer of Silane method crosslinked polyethylene PE-xB, then bound by quality adhesive to a longitudinally TIG butt welded 100% oxygen tight aluminium layer that allows the pipe to maintain its shape after bending. Total hygiene and high corrosion resistance is ensured as fluids come in contact with the inner PE-xB layer only.

MULTI APPLICATIONS: Potable water, underfloor heating and all general plumbing and heating applications.

Instantor BL Rated Pex-Al-Pex Pipe

Enclosed in a scratch-resistant, closed-cell polyethylene foam sheath which has been designed to comply with the Building Regulations and applicable testing standards.

Instantor pipe Insulation has a PH of 7.5, keeping it in a neutralist window along with Non-Detection (ND) of any trace ions such as Chloride, Fluoride, Silicate, and Sodium as tested to EN13468 by TUV and free of Ozone depletion substances (CFCs, HBFCs, CCL4) as tested to EU regulation No1005/2009 by Intertek elevating any concerns regarding the environment and corrosive substances.

The Instantor Press Insulated pipe coils IPAP6 range have a Euro class fire rating of BL-S1-d0 with results of: Figra 256.6W/s & THR 7.4 when tested to EN13501 by SGS, providing peace of mind and full application compliance in line with TGD’s Part B (specifically large voids &/or cavities).

Instantor Press Tools Features

We recently launched Instantor Press Tools with two variations available. The 18V Press Tool is available in two versions; the Mini Press Tool (IT2020) providing an output of 19kN or the Large Press Tool (IT2040) providing an output of 32kN.

The IT2020 and IT2040 tools can be used for connecting stainless steel pipe, MLCP, PEX pipe with suitable press fittings (Instantor Press, Stainless Steel Press and Copper Press Fittings). The high-pressure hydraulic system is powered by a Li-ion battery, actuated by a motor, and controlled by a MCU.

The Instantor Press Tool is available for all common systems. TH, VI & M Profile Jaws are amongst the selection when customising your kit.
