The SDT Manual PEX Tube Expander Tool is for use making tubing connections in potable water and radiant heating applications using the process of expanding PEX-a tubing. This Expansion tool gives you the ability to expand from 5/8" up to 1 1/4" utilizing one simple tool.
The expansion method involves using an expansion tool to increase the diameter of the PEX tube. Special expansion fittings are inserted into the expanded tube, which shrinks back to shape around the fitting. A plastic ring is then pressed over the fitting to insure a tight connection. Information about testing standards for this method can be found on the ASTM standards page.
