Unique Press Fitting Concept
Europress is a premium supplier of high-quality stainless steel and carbon steel press fit fittings to a wide range of industries in the Australian and international markets. The heart of the Europress press fitting system consists of a toroidal seat for the O-ring and tight-tolerances in the fitting design technique and manufacture.
The Europress press fittings work by using a special pipe press tool, which applies hydraulic powered jaws over the crimp-end. This helps in joining the pipe in its particular fittings in a two-step process. The Europress press fit fittings procedure produces two deformations called Radial Compression and Geometric Compression.
- Radial Compression creates a hermetic seal around the toroidal chamber of the fitting, where the O-ring is compressed.
- Geometric Compression refers to the compression of both the pipe and the fitting, which is responsible for creating a mechanical joint. This creates a strong joint, which is resistant to longitudinal and rotation movement.

Press Tools Sized For Application
Europress press tools come in a range of sizes and capabilities selected to give you the best versatility. Choose from the lightweight one-handed TB02 or TB03 for the small size pipes – 15, 22 or 28, these reduce strain and operator fatigue increasing productivity for these sizes.
The TB05 or the TB06 are ideal to give the option of sizes up to 54, while the TB08 or TB09 can cover the whole range up to 108.
For the larger sizes – 76.1, 89, 108 and super sizes 139.7 and 168.3 then the TB10 is recommended.
Press Heads, Jaws & Chains Sized For Application
It is very important only to use well maintained and approved press heads, jaws, and chains to guarantee the integrity of the completed press joint. These press heads, jaws and chains are highly engineered and designed to produce a safe joint of the highest integrity.
