Join The Future With Watts TRITON Pipe Fusion

The revolutionary TRITON system is the first application of radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic technology, a trusted method of welding used in industrial applications, for plastic piping.

This new welding technique has many advantages over conventional pipe joining processes:
  • TRITON enables pipe joining and pressure testing in minutes (instead of hours) 
  • TRITON welds can be completed by one person, reducing required manpower 
  • TRITON creates a safer work environment—no exposed heating elements, no adhesives with VOCs, no exposed flame 
  • TRITON outside diameter welds offer unobstructed flow and decreased pressure drop, reducing overall system cost 
  • TRITON is ready to use in minutes—no waiting for exposed heating elements to heat up 
  • TRITON uses less energy than conventional pipe joining technology

The TRITON Pipe Fusion system includes three components: a Control Unit, Fusers, and Fittings. (Both Fusers and Fittings are sold separately). The TRITON components are designed to work together to create lasting hermetic welds in minutes without the use of adhesives, open flame, or heating elements.

The TRITON Series TRCU-M1 Control Unit is designed to operate on a standard 110/120 VAC circuit. The Control Unit converts the AC power to DC power, and then generates a radio frequency (RF) signal. The RF signal is transferred to the Series TRFWP1 Fuser to complete the welding process.

The self-contained and self-calibrating Control Unit comes with a 10’ long GFCI-protected power cord and a 20’ long coaxial Fuser cable. The power draw for each weld is less than 100 watts. (Only Watts supplied cords should be used with the TRITON Control Unit).

The TRITON Series TRFWP1 Fusers are designed to concentrate a radio frequency (RF) signal and direct it onto a TRITON Fitting. This in turn generates heat which fuses the Fitting and pipe together.

The TRITON TRFWP1 Fusers are currently available in five sizes (to standard ASTM D3035)

TRITON Fittings are uniquely engineered: 
  • Unique design increases strength & rigidity 
  • Lightweight form factor 
  • Full range of sizes and configurations

Duravit Rimless: Efficient Flushing. Optimum Hygiene.

This rimless wall-mounted toilet with innovative and effective flushing technology offers an efficient solution: the water is delivered to the bowl forcefully and systematically, ensuring that the entire inner surface is rinsed throughout the flushing process. The dynamic water flow provides outstanding flushing results while preventing splashing. As a modern wall-mounted toilet of the 1.6 / 1.28 gpf generation, DuraStyle rimless even saves water.

Thanks to its open and easily accessible rim area, it is also considerably easier to keep the bowl clean. The DuraStyle rimless is also optionally available with the WonderGliss coating. This makes it even simpler to keep the entire inside of the toilet clean.

With its timelessly modern form, DuraStyle's design is equally impressive. The wall-mounted toilet made entirely of sanitary ceramic with a 21 1/4" projection boasts an extra-flat seat that is optionally available with the SoftClose feature. It is also available in an elongated version with a 24 3/8" projection and concealed fastening. This model can also be combined with the Sensowash shower-toilet seat.

Fernox: Born To Lead, Not Follow

Since its establishment in 1964, Fernox has been leading the water treatment market. It was Fernox Founder Peter Muetzel who first recognized the fundamental role chemical water treatment has in maintaining the energy efficiency of a central heating system and extending its lifespan.

For 50 years, Fernox’s focus has been on research and development, and the company’s success lies in its pioneering spirit. With an on-going commitment to innovation, Fernox has grown to become a global leader in chemical water treatments, system filters as well as diagnostic testing and analysis services.

Key innovations include the company’s trusted ‘F’ range of chemical water treatments that comprises of Protector F1, boiler noise silencer F2, cleaner F3 and leak sealer F4. The products are available in a 500 ml or an express aerosol format, which allows dosage to be completed in mere seconds – quickly, efficiently and without the need to drain down the system.

The most effective means of cleaning a heavily sludged central heating system is by power flushing. Fernox designed the 110v Powerflow Flushing Machine MKIII to enable installers to remove corrosion debris, sludge and scale from a system with just one visit to the site.

The company’s ability to innovate also led to the development of the award-winning Fernox TF1 Total Filter, which removes both magnetic and nonmagnetic contaminants from central heating systems, providing a “belt and braces” approach to boiler protection. Fernox is prolific in its approach to new product development – responding to changes in legislation, technology and installer feedback to regularly update its offering. Moreover, alongside its comprehensive product development program Fernox tirelessly champions best practices and the importance of training – taking the lead on informing the market of legislative changes and offering best practice technical advice.
