Compact jaw

By Plant Engineering Staff December 20, 2006

The Compact Series jaw for Murray heavy-duty, stainless steel PEX clamps offers increased versatility for the Compact 100-B pressing tool. Designed to be used with the Ridgid compact 100-B pressing tool, the clamp jaw is suitable for making quick connections on 3/8- to 1-inch PEX tubing in potable water and radiant heat applications. The compact jaw design enables the end user to work in tight spaces, and a jaw ID clip is provided for quick identification. The tool is the most lightweight, compact and durable pressing tool offered by Ridge Tool. Weighing only 7.5 pounds, it is powered by a 14.4-volt nickel metal hydride battery, allowing for use in extreme temperatures. The tool features a 90-degree swivel barrel for increased maneuverability when working around obstructions and is available with pressing jaws for use with 1/2- to 1-inch copper tubing connections, as well as 3/8- to 1-1/2-inch Viega PureFlow connections and 3/8 to 1-1/4-inch ASTM F 1807 copper crimp ring PEX connections.
