In the EASY•GAS and EASY•WATER System jointing is obtained by axially polling the steel fastening bushing on the multilayer pipe. Before pulling the bushing, the pipe is cold-expanded by means of a special tool. After the coupling is positioned, the pipe will return to its original shape thanks to the “memory” effect. Advantages of this system are multiple because the memory effect of the PEX-C inner layer makes it possible to take advantage of its characteristics in a remarkable way and ensure an hydraulic seal (in addition to the mechanical seal) only via the pipe (without the o-ring) with a minimum reduction of its passageway section. Load losses, localized within couplings because of their shrinkage are therefore much more, limited.
