Uponor Introduces Two New EP
Multiport Tees for Commercial PEX Plumbing Applications.
Uponor North America (Uponor) recently launched two new, engineered polymer (EP)
multiport tees to meet the increasing demand in commercial plumbing systems
using crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) pipe.
new, high-flow branch and flow-through EP multiport tees are targeted for
commercial installations where supply lines are required to be upsized due to
pressure or code requirements. One multiport does the same job as three separate
tees, reducing the amount of connections by 45%. Both the branch and
flow-through multiports feature 1¼" inlets with three ¾" outlets.
