|The brass Oyster converter is an easy fit termination connection for use on heating and potable water systems. It is used to connect copper tube to female threaded fittings, radiators and valves. The female fitting needs to have a flat sealing face. If its does not, a traditional thread sealing method could be used.
Manufactured from brass, it features two EPDM 'O' rings, one sealing the tube o.d and the other the fitting face.
The Oyster is retained on the tube by dimpling the tube end with the appropriate pliers.
Compatible with copper tube to EN 1057 in R220 (soft), R250 (half hard) and R290 (hard) condition. Not suitable for gas applications.
