Reasons to choose Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel
The defined jaw guide on the Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel fitting ensures that the pressing jaw is positioned in exactly the right position. It also prevents any risk of the joint slipping or being pressed in the wrong place. This prevents failed pressing sequences and ensures reliable and durable connections.
The extremely smooth surface is a prerequisite for added system safety and long-term tightness. The weld seams are smoothed by a mechanical finishing treatment for optimum flow behaviour and a perfectly positioned seal ring. The roughness values are therefore well below the limits set out in standards and guarantee the tightness of the system.
|Welded pipe seam
A special thermal treatment creates a homogeneous material structure in the weld seams. The seams are also smoothed mechanically. This results in the pipes and fittings behaving uniformly during the pressing operation.
The optimum composition of the alloy components results in a high degree of material and system safety. Our extensive works standard, which goes beyond the required standards, is the reason for this safety: the Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel system pipes and fittings have a molybdenum content of at least 2.3%.
The coordinated components lend the system a high load bearing capacity. Operating pressures of 2.5 MPa (25 bar) and more are possible. Due to the high level of mechanical strength, a wide range of applications is possible which extends far beyond the usual domestic installations.
|Spheroidisation of the Geberit Mapress seal ring
During the pressing procedure, the seal ring is given a pre-defined shape by the pressing jaw of the Geberit Mapress pressing tools. During this process the ring absorbs additional energy for permanent and reliable tightness.
|Weld seam of the Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel fitting
A clean weld seam on the contact surface of the seal ring contributes to ensuring the system's permanent tightness and to cutting susceptibility to corrosion. The weld seam processing has to meet Geberit's stringent quality demands. A special thermal treatment ensures a homogenous material structure and thereby an optimum pressing operation.
|Geometry of the Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel fittings
Thanks to the compact geometry of the Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel fittings, they require less space and therefore tighter fitting combinations are possible. Furthermore, Geberit offers numerous fittings that are coordinated with a wide range of applications.
|Blue pressing indicator
The blue colour of the pressing indicator on the fitting enables clear identification of the material. In addition, a print on the pipe end facilitates the identification of the dimensioning. The pressing indicator can be simply removed manually after the correct pressing operation.
The Geberit Mapress Stainless Steel sockets are sealed with a plug that protects the sockets at the building site from dust and dirt. The colour of the protection plug also identifies the application.
The Geberit Mapress seal ring provides the pressing indicator with additional safety. Due to its special contours, unpressed connections leak during the pressure test. This recognition feature prevents harm later during operation.
