A first in the industry, Uponor PEX pipe and ProPEX® expansion fittings are now available in 2½” and 3″ sizes, offering professionals the ability to specify, design and install even more commercial plumbing and hydronic piping systems with PEX.
The pipe offering, which includes Uponor AquaPEX® for potable-plumbing applications and Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe for hydronic heating and cooling applications, is available in various coil lengths and straight lengths to meet any application need. The ProPEX ASTM F1960 expansion fitting offering includes a complete line of tees, elbows, couplings and transition fittings, as well as a flange adapter kit. The offering also includes new PEX pipe cutting tools and larger sizes of PEX-a Pipe Support (a steel channel that enables hanger spacing similar to that of copper for suspended-piping applications).
To align with this new offering, Milwaukee® Electric Tool is launching its new M18™ FORCELOGIC™ ProPEX Expansion Tool that expands 2″, 2½” and 3″ Uponor PEX pipe for making ProPEX connections. The new FORCELOGIC tool complements Milwaukee’s current offering of M12™ and M18 ProPEX Expansion Tools for ⅜” through 1½” Uponor PEX pipe sizes.
“Offering Uponor PEX pipe and ProPEX fittings in 2½” and 3″ is a game-changer for the commercial piping industry,” says Radcliff. “Now even more structures can benefit from the great advantages Uponor PEX provides, including greater durability, greater freeze-resistance, flexibility for fewer fittings and fewer potential leak points, a 25-year warranty and the only fitting system in the industry that actually gets stronger over time.”
