Avoiding a Squeeze Off

Posted: Tuesday 23rd June 2009

The unique feature of the Speedfit Connection means that the new Speedfit Blue Stop End for Cold Water Services can be used not only as a permanent shut off for an MDPE installation but also as a temporary cap off, avoiding the need for the use of a squeeze off tool.

The simple action of pushing the Stop End on to the end of the pipe gives a permanent shut-off. The unique feature of Speedfit however means that it is quick and easy to remove the end stop to allow work on the pipe line to re commence or for an extension to the system.

Simply remove the collet cover, then, pushing the collet towards the fitting releases the pipe. The pipe can then be withdrawn. Both fitting and pipe can then be re used without the need for replacement parts.

Thus, the fitting is especially useful to allow water to be turned back on, overnight for instance, or if a job has to be interrupted for some other reason.

Stop Ends are also useful for pressure testing a system or doing rough inspections.

The Stop End is part of a whole range of WRAS Approved push in fittings for MDPE and is available in 20mm and 25mm sizes.
