    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives requirements for a light series of compression couplings of carbon steel, stainless steel and copper alloy for tubes with the outside diameters from 6mm to 42mm. Excludes installation of couplings. Strict compliance with the fitting instructions of the manufacturer is necessary. Includes marking procedures and certificate of compliance, method of describing compression couplings (metric sizes) and information to be agreed between the purchaser and manufacturer. Illustrates compression couplings, male stud coupling 22mm x G 3/4 A, and male stud tee 22mm x G 3/4 A x 20mm.
