Geberit Mapress CuNiFe piping system


The salt water spacialist

Due to its high level of corrosion resistance, the Geberit MapressCuNiFe copper/nickel/iron alloy has proven itself, especially for pipelines carrying salt water and in shipbuilding.

Reasons to choose Geberit Mapress CuNiFe

The optimum composition of the alloy components results in a high degree of material and system safety. The extensive works standard, which goes beyond the required standards, is the reason for this safety.
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 pressing.
Perfectly smooth

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.
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.
Mechanical strength

The coordinated components lend the system a high load bearing capacity. Operating pressures of 2.5 MPa (25 bar) and more are possible. The high level of mechanical strength allows for a wide range of applications.
Weld seam of the Geberit Mapress CuNiFe 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 homogeneous material structure and thereby an optimum pressing operation.
Black pressing indicator

The black 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 dimension used. The pressing indicator can be simply removed manually after the correct pressing operation.
Protection plug

The Geberit MapressCuNiFe fittings are sealed with a plug that protects the supply network from dust and dirt. The colour of the protection plug also identifies the application.
Additional safety

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.
Geometry of the Geberit Mapress CuNiFe fitting

Thanks to the compact geometry of the Geberit MapressCuNiFe fittings, they require less space and tighter fitting combinations are therefore possible. Furthermore, Geberit offers numerous fittings that are coordinated with a wide range of applications.
