About ProPEX Expansion Rings (Sleeves) With Stop
A ProPEX ring with a stop, also known as a ProPEX expansion ring with a stop, is a type of fitting used in PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) plumbing systems. ProPEX is a specific type of expansion fitting system developed by Uponor, a leading manufacturer of PEX products.
The ring with a stop is a component of the system that is used in conjunction with PEX tubing and an expansion tool. The ring is typically made of PEX A material or another suitable material and has a circular shape. It is designed to fit over the end of a PEX pipe or tubing.
The "stop" on the expansion F1960 ring refers to a built-in feature that limits the depth to which the ring can be expanded during the installation process. This stop ensures that the expansion is consistent and reliable, preventing over-expansion and providing a secure connection.
During installation, the expansion tool is used to expand the PEX tubing. The expanded tubing allows the ring with a stop to slide over the tubing. As the tubing contracts back to its original size, it creates a tight seal with the ring, forming a secure connection.
Expansion rings, are widely used in PEX plumbing systems for their ease of installation and reliability. They are commonly used in residential and commercial applications for hot and cold water distribution, radiant heating, and other plumbing systems where PEX tubing is employed.
