Polythene Fittings

Both the Kuterlite K700 range of compression fittings and the Philmac 9000/Metric Imperial range of Polypropolyne PP fittings are available from Haldane Fisher.

kuterliteKUTERLITE K700

The Kuterlite joint consists of a body with a built in stop for receiving the tube, a compression ring the same size as the tube's outside diameter, K700and a compression nut. To make the joint, the tube and fitting are assembled, and the compression nut tightened with a spanner. This quick and simple action compresses the compression ring onto the tube, creating a sound mechanical joint.

One of the major advantages of Kuterlite compression fittings is that the installer joins the tube by mechanical means. This heat-free system means no hot works permits are required, and joints can be made where it would otherwise be dangerous to use a naked flame.

kuterlieKuterlite 700 is a range of non-manipulative (Type A) compression fittings in sizes from 20mm to 63mm for use on cold water services with metric medium density polyethylene pipe (MDPE). Blue MDPE to BS EN 12056-2:2000 and black MDPE to BS 6730 are for use below and above ground respectively. The range is ideal for horticultural installations and for temporary water supplies, for example construction sites, exhibitions and market gardens. The fittings are also suitable for use with certain industrial fluids, but not for gas services. K700 fittings have a one-piece body manufactured from dezincification resistant (DZR) alloy or gunmetal, copper compression rings and liners, and DZR nuts. A full range of adaptors allows for easy connection to existing polyethylene pipework. Polyethylene pipe can be connected to copper tube through a range of couplings and stopvalves which form part of the K1700/Kuterlite valves ranges.



Philmac Metric Imperial Polypropolyne PP Fittings incorporate all the benefits of Philmac's Slide & Tighten technology. No pipe preparation is needed and no force is required to push the pipe past the seal, so installation could not be faster or easier. Simply insert the pipe into the fitting and then tighten the nut by hand and firmly with a wrench.

Patent protected the Metric/Imperial plastic compression fitting is the product of the company's unrelenting commitment to continuous improvement and a culture based on innovation and ingenuity. For fast and easy connections between metric and imperial polyethylene.
