High-density polyethylene (HDPE) compression fittings provide outstanding physical and performance benefits. Strong and lightweight, HDPE reduces the amount of material used and serves as a greener alternative to heavier metals. Poly compression fittings are an age-old method of joining two pieces of poly pipe together, with an o-ring or bush and a screw cap working together to clamp the pipe ends within the fittings. With a clean pipe and a new fitting, the grip is strongest, and when properly installed, will last for many years without leaking.
Poly compression fittings are available in two main types; metric compression fittings and imperial compression fittings, which are mainly used for rural imperial-sized poly pipe. To view Acu-Tech’s range of rural imperial compression fittings, see this page.
Acu-Tech’s HDPE Plasson compression fittings are Australia’s choice for connection of rural class poly pipes. These HDPE compression fittings are made of high-performance thermoplastic materials, providing long service life and resistance to corrosion. Sourced from Europe’s leading manufacturers such as Plasson, our clients are assured of our fittings’ quality and performance. Acu-Tech’s advantage over other Plasson resellers is our large inventory and buying power, giving you easy access to a wide range of PE compression fittings, at a reasonable rate!
We carry an extensive range of HDPE compression fittings, including PE Plasson fittings to meet differing sectors’ varied requirements. Our metric poly pipe compression fittings include:
Acu-Tech compression fittings and clamp saddles are designed specifically for connecting polyethylene pipes with an outside diameter from 16 mm to 110 mm (200 mm for clamp saddles). They are compatible with PELD, PEHD, PE40, PE80 and PE100 pipes complying with AS / NZS 4130 Series 1. They are normally used to convey drinking water and fluids at pressures up to 16 bar for generic applications. The quality of the materials used makes these Plasson fittings resistant to etching by numerous chemical substances, and to UV-rays.
The Acu-Tech Universal Fitting can be used to connect systems using PE metric piping with existing pipes made of any material, with external diameters of 15-34 mm. Acu-Tech compression fittings are very similar in design to SAB compression fittings, Plasson compression fittings and Philmac compression fittings, which are designed around similar poly pipe joining principles.
