Thin walled press-fit

Thin walled press-fit fittings are made of a precision deformable body, containing an O-ring (elastomer) seal as well as a mechanical grip ring.  Thin-walled precision tube is pushed into the fitting, and then a specially designed press-fit jaw, or crimping tool is used to compress the fitting body, seal and grip ring onto the tube, thereby creating the joint.

Thin walled press-fit fittings provide a permanent, heat-free jointing installation.  These systems are sometimes referred to as crimped or socket fittings.  These systems are designed to work with thin-walled precision tubes.  Different O-ring (elastomer) materials may be used for different applications. 

Typically, these fittings are typically manufactured from carbon steel, stainless steel, and copper.  A chrome plated finish can be found on copper variants for functionality and maximum aesthetic appeal, for example in bathrooms and kitchens.
