>B< MaxiPro Installation Instructions

To install >B< MaxiPro, a Rothenberger Romax mechanical tool with compatible sized jaw to fit each size fitting is required. When pressure is exerted through the press tool a permanent joint is made and the fitting cannot be disassembled or re-used. The >B< Press profile has the advantage of a 3 Point Press making it more secure, through two mechanical presses either side of the bead and one hydraulic press crimping the O-ring.
