The suitability of press tools is determined basically by the manufacturer of press tools. Moreover the suitability of REMS press tools has been confirmed by the system manufacturer/supplier himself or approved through independent testing institutes.
Confirmation of suitability through the system manufacturer/supplier
More than 90 % of the manufacturers/suppliers of the pressfitting systems listed herein have tested REMS pressing tongs and confirmed the suitability for their pressfitting system.
Confirmation of suitability through independent testing institutes
The suitability of REMS pressing tongs for additional pressfitting systems have been confirmed through independent technical institutes:
Available for biroduct P, Geberit Mepla, mapress C-STAHL, mapress EDELSTAHL, mapress Kupfer, Nussbaum Cupress, Nussbaum Optipress, Uponor Unipipe, Viega-'profipress', Viega-'profipress G', Viega-'sanfix P', Viega-'sanpress', Viega-'Viegatherm P', Wavin Tigris. The TÜV-certificates confirm that REMS crimping tools are suitable for producing perfect and system-conformity pressing joints corresponding to these systems, both in conjunction with REMS pressing tongs and the pressing tongs of system manufacturers/suppliers.
Suitability test according to DVGW W 534 (potable water)
Pressing joints produced with REMS press tools have been tested by the state-operated material testing institute (MPA) in Darmstadt/Germany according to DVGW work sheet W 534. The institute is certified to perform these tests by the DVGW. A representative cross-section of press joints of pressfitting systems Geberit Mapress Edelstahl, Raccorderie Metalliche inoxPRES, Raccorderie Metalliche steelPRES, Uponor Unipipe and Viega-'profipress' was tested. The test results led to the result that all REMS pressing tools are suitable for producing perfect and system conformity pressing joints in accordance with these systems.
Suitability test according to DVGW VP 614/625 or prEN 1254-7 (gas)
Pressing joints produced with REMS press tools have been tested by the TÜV or by the Land Material Testing Institue Nordrhein-Westfalen or the DVGW Research Institute Karlsruhe according to DVGW regulations VP 614/625 or by BSI (UK) according to prEN 1254-7. A representative cross-section of pressing joints of pressfitting systems Geberit Mapress Edelstahl Gas, Geberit Mapress Kupfer Gas, Henco Gas, IBP >B< Gas, Kembla KemPress Gas, Pegler Yorkshire X-Press Copper Gas, Uponor MLC-G, Viega 'profipress G', Viega 'sanpress INOX G', Viega 'propress G GAS' (AUS) was tested. The test results led to the result that all REMS pressing tools are suitable for producing perfect and system conformity pressing joints in accordance with these systems.
