This means guaranteed reliable pressing and higher efficiency at all times, even under difficult conditions.

Reliably Monitored Pressing: Hydraulic Pressure Check

Hydraulic Pressure Check (HPC for short) monitors the oil pressure in the tool’s oil circuit, hence ensuring a continuous, consistent press quality.

During each pressing cycle, the achieved pressing pressure is determined by a pressure sensor and compared to the required minimum value. An audible warning signal sounds if the achieved pressure differs from the specified working pressure. The user will know immediately that the fitting has not been pressed to the correct pressure and the fitting must be replaced and the tool must be serviced. If three consecutive pressings occur outside the required pressure range, the tools switch off automatically and must be sent in for service for your protection.

Stainless steel Europress pressfittings have the added feature of the distinctive press check sleeve for extra integrity when installing stainless steel pressfitting onto stainless steel pipe. Each Europress pressfitting joint has a highly visible successful crimp indicator up to and including 54mm. The colour coded press check sleeve indicates if each joint has been pressed to give peace of mind that no joint has been left unpressed. You don’t have to wait till it leaks to verify correct installation!
