High-Pressure Copper Fitting - bend 45 degree
This High-Pressure Copper fitting is used to change the direction of copper pipework by 45 degrees. Both ends have the same size.
High-Pressure Copper, in this context, is used to describing fittings that use silver brazing alloy to weld them. NB "capillary" fittings also use silver brazing alloy to weld, and cover ranges 15mm - 25mm.
High-Pressure Copper fittings are manufactured from copper and made to Australian Standards 3688. The standards are designed to provide a material that is safe for drinking and gas applications as well as meeting a mechanical strength and chemical resistance. They complement copper manufactured to AS 1423. The copper is available is 4 classes, dependent on pressure needs. The common class that is used plumbing is type B. Fittings used in conjunction with Type-B copper attain a working pressure of 3500-5290, depending on size. See Copper pressures chart. This ensures the copper made to Australian Standards is safe, strong, and long-lasting. DZR (DR) brass is used throughout Australia. It stands for "dezincified brass" and has been specified to meet Australia's harsh environment. Much of the brass is recycled and each batch is tested to ensure it complies with Australian Standards.
Copper is safe, long-lasting, does not burn, is recyclable, is vermin proof and withstands temperatures to 200°C.
Teflon and a paste (eg Mirror paste) are recommended to complete consistent watertight seals in threads.
All screwed brassware is covered by a WaterMark approval for all sizes and comply to AS3688.
Maximum working temperature 80°C and maximum pressure rating 2000kPa.
