Pegler Yorkshire launches new stainless steel tube

Plumbing and heating solutions specialist Pegler Yorkshire announced the launch of its XPress SS630 tube – a new grade of stainless steel tube that benefits from equivalent strength and corrosion properties as the 316. The new grade of tube is already widely used across Europe. Its high Chromium content and presence of Molybdenum, amongst other alloys has meant the price-sensitive Nickel element is no longer a requirement.

With matching qualities to that of 316, the Xpress SS630 is set to be a serious contender in the tube market. It can be used across a wide variety of building services and industrial applications from commercial heating and fire protection systems through to aggressive environmental applications, such as shipbuilding.

XPress SS630 is available in sizes 15mm–54mm and 6m lengths, and meets a wide range of approvals including several international standards for sprinklers (LPCB, FM) and shipbuilding (DNV, GL, RINA). The presence of titanium gives the tube strength and formability, which means that sizes up to 28mm can also be bent to suit. The SS650 range completes the tube offering up to 108mm.

It is compatible with the standard XPress Stainless Steel fittings range and benefits from a unique ‘Leak Before Press’ (LBP) design developed to provide instant identification of joints that have been assembled correctly but mistakenly left un-pressed.
