Pipemarkers Valve Tags Engraved Nameplates CIRCLE ID #19 ON READER SERVICE CARD OR GO TO HVACPPRODUCTS.COM/MARKET Installation-Ready Fittings Designed for Grooved Copper Tubing Victaulic's Installation-Ready fittings are designed for grooved copper tubing. The fittings integrate couplings into the cast fitting housings at each connection point, resulting in faster and simpler piping system in- stallation and maintenance, while improving safety and efficiency on job- sites. Combining the simplicity of the QuickVic Style 607 Rigid Coupling with the convenience of a one-piece fitting, installation time is reduced and maintenance is made simple. Grooved copper tubing and accessories are easily joined to the fitting by pushing the tubing or accessory into the fitting outlet and tightening the pre-installed bolts and nuts. Should maintenance or system retrofit become required, the fittings can be removed and reinstalled without having to cut into the copper tubing. CHECK OR CIRCLE #151 Uponor Re-Engineers Residential Valves Uponor recently launched its re-engineered ProPEX lead- free brass valves for residential plumbing applications. Re-engineered to offer the same amount of flow with a more compact design for greater in- stallation efficiencies and higher performance, they meet building codes IPC, UPC and IRC, as well as being listed to NSF 14, NSF 61, NSF 359 and NSF 372 for superior confi- dence in a product that is code-compliant and listed for all plumbing installations. In addition, the valves are backed by an extended 10-year warranty and are available at a more cost-effective price to bring even greater value to a residential plumbing project. CHECK OR CIRCLE #152 QUICK-CONNECT KIT DELIVERS STABILITY TO TODAY'S HIGH- EFFICIENCY FIXTURES Packed with exclusive features, the new 520 Series Tankmixer quick-connect kit from Caleffi is the perfect mixing valve solution to maximize capacity of modern, high- efficiency water heaters and mini- mize installation time. Everything needed for fast installa- tion is available in the kit, including a cold water cross with check valve, flexible pipe and press, sweat or NPT fittings. With a minimum flow rating of .5 gpm, Tankmixer delivers stable temperature to today's HE fixtures. Connecting a recirculation circuit is easy with the integral inlet port on the cold water cross and a tight hot water close-off pre- vents recirculation line temperature creep to protect the pump's aquastat service life. Stable temperature control and long life is ensured by anti-scale polymer materials. CHECK OR CIRCLE #153 John Guest USA Introduces Fitting Lineup Designed for use in the water softener and domestic plumbing markets, the new ProLock Fitting Range from John Guest is available in 3/8-inch to 1-inch CTS sizes. Manufactured from high-quality engineered plastic with EPDM O-Rings, ProLock fittings can be used with any combination of copper, PEX or CPVC pipe without the need for any tools. The push-to-connect fittings use Twist-to-Lock technology, which provides users with extra security when fittings are twisted into the locked position. Proven to reduce installation times by over 40 percent, the products are also code-approved and approved for behind-the-wall use. CHECK OR CIRCLE #150 Pipe Reduction Made Easy with Couplings When reducing pipe size, there is no easier way than with SharkBite's EvoPEX push-fit reducing couplings. Easily reduce from 1 inch to 3/4 inch or 3/4 inch to 1/2 inch. There is no need for solder, glue, clamps or unions — simply push to connect and move on. It's as simple as inserting PEX pipe into the fitting deep enough to be sealed by the specially formulated O-ring. Once inserted, the stainless steel teeth bite down and grip the pipe. A green indicator ring will display in the slots around the fitting to visually show the secured permanent inner-diameter connection. This quick-connect fitting is designed to make PEX-to-PEX connections in potable water and radiant heating (including underground or behind-the-wall) applications with no access panels required.
