    Re: My first Pro Press job

    What kind of temperatures can propress fittings handle?

    Could these fittings be used on residential boilers that are being supplied by oil or gas?

    Nice work Hawk.

              That is some VERY NICE pipe work! It's very pleasant perusing a beautiful job.

              I don't think I've ever seen copper clad clevis hangers before!! So that's new to me. Thanks. Here they don't want us supporting pipe from other pipe. Although sometimes you are forced to. NICE use of unsitrut!!

                thanks some of the clevis hangers are just a paint but some are a copper coating and i have soldered to them before
                they dont like hanging pipe from pipe but like you said some times you have to but i could have offset it but i did not
                i had to do all the unistrut because the roof was 20ft high and i was not running all hangers up there

                  Did your boss consider ProPress Gas as well? Just wondering.

                  Thanks.

                      JC: Would you use ProPress fittings on gas?

                      Personally I couldn't. Just think of the Challenger explosion, that was an O-ring failure. It's one thing if water leaks, gas is an entirely different ball game.

                        I don't do much gas. That I do is black iron. Black iron just has so much more proven tolerance than other systems to me.

                        Gas ProPress will take off in new/larger projects though. But I think copper price will control that some for now.

                        One day they won't need any of us. It will all be Temp Service.

                            Very clean looking. I just wish Propress stuff wasn't so pricey

                              aram, the next time you want to try out the propress system, let me know and i'll let you borrow the tool.

                              i'm sure i have an extra or 7
