Application for the Universal Series fittings

In order to reduce energy consumption whilst carrying out a program of valve testing it was decided to use an existing heat exchanger that had been languishing in our test room to extract heat from waste hot water.

Our test technician Peter quickly solved the problem of connecting the heat exchanger’s 8-mm copper tube inlet and outlet to the test boiler’s 10-mm i.d flexible hose cold water supply by using the Universal Series RU31UB with John Guest push-in 8mm ends and a RU31UI 10mm hose tail..
