Philmac 3G Metric 25mm x 3/4" MI BSP 70723200 Quick Connect
Philmac's 3G Metric is the latest innovation in compression fitting for joining metric polyethyelene pressure pipe. The third generation fitting includes Philmac's patented Slide & Tighten technology which makes installation as easy as inserting the pipe and tightening the nut. The unique product design also make dissasembly as easy as loosening the nut to remove the pipe. These compression fittings are manufactured from tough, high performance plastics providing excellent UV, impact and corrosion resistance. Globally released in 2005, 3G Metric has taken Australian design to the world. Australian made for Australian conditions - don't ask for a fitting, ask for a Philmac.
Philmac, Australia’s premier manufacturer of plastic compression fittings for polyethylene pipelines is proud to release 3G Metric – our third and very latest generation of fittings to connect metric sized poly pipe.
Having taken international markets by storm since its release in 2005, 3G Metric is now set to make metric poly pipe connections in Australia easier than ever before. The culmination of years of research & development and utilisation of cutting-edge manufacturing technology and stringent testing, this new range of fittings is smaller, tougher and faster to use than ever before. And, its 100% compatible with Australia’s number one fitting to join rural poly pipe, Philmac Rural.
Designed to make the job at hand so much easier, the 3G Metric plastic compression fitting is the product of Philmac’s unrelenting commitment to continuous improvement and a culture based on innovation and ingenuity.
Fast and easy installation
Slide & Tighten technology
3G Metric incorporates all the benefits of Philmac’s unique Slide & Tighten technology. No pipe preparation is needed and no force is required to push the pipe past the seal, so installation couldn’t be faster or easier. Simply insert the pipe into the fitting until the stop is felt, and then tighten the nut. Assembly is so easy you can even do it under live conditions. No special tools are required, and there is no need to disassemble the fitting before use because the 3G Metric compression fitting is supplied pre-assembled and ready to use.
The size of the new Philmac 3G Metric compression fitting has been kept to a minimum, making the fitting ideal to use in confined areas. In addition to making connections with minimal turns of the nut, the design and size of the fitting means that in installations taking place between two fixed points, the manipulation of the pipe into the fitting becomes easy.
The fitting has been designed so the collet is released as soon as the nut is backed off, making disassembly easy.
Dynamic sealing method
The mechanical advantage of the nut thread compresses the seal into position.
The flange on the body of Philmac’s 3G Metric compression fitting provides a visual stop to indicate when the nut is fully tightened. This removes any uncertainty from the installation process.
No loose components
If the nut is removed there is no danger of losing components, as the collet and seal are retained in the body of the fitting. Losing components in the trench becomes a thing of the past.
Designed to minimise pipe twist
The fitting has been designed to minimise pipe twist as the nut is tightened. Maximum pipe twist is approximately a quarter turn compared to one and a half turns with many other fittings. Pipe twist can impact on not only the connection you have just made but also on the connection at the other end of the line.
Philmac 3G Metric is WaterMark approved and has WSAA appraisal.
Made from advanced thermoplastic materials
3G Metric is manufactured from lightweight high performance thermoplastic materials with outstanding impact, UV, chemical and corrosion resistance. The material is non-toxic and taint-free.
Rated to 1600 kPa
3G Metric is pressure rated to 1600 kPa (PN16) to meet the needs of high pressure systems.
50 year+ design life
Built to withstand the toughest conditions to ensure longevity and durability, 3G Metric has a 50 year+ design life.
The new 3G Metric range is comprehensive: straight and reducing joiners, tees, elbows, end connectors and caps ranging from 16mm to 63mm. Philmac 3G Metric also incorporates a range of dedicated recycled water fittings and poly to copper connections for fast and simple connection to both PE and copper pipe.
