Philmac is a global leader in the design and manufacture of specialist pipe fittings and valves, providing cost-effective solutions for the transfer, control and application of water.
Philmac’s products can be found in mines, on farms and rural properties, vineyards, golf courses, domestic and industrial building developments and the reticulated water supplies of towns and cities across the world.
Since its establishment in South Australia in 1929, the company’s enviable success has been achieved through a commitment to continuous improvement in quality, product design, innovation, manufacturing and customer service.
Philmac developed the world’s first all-plastic compression fittings for polyethylene (PE) pipe in 1968 and its products are now viewed as the international benchmark.
The exceptional quality and value of Philmac’s products has driven a strong expansion into global markets. Philmac exports almost half its drainage products to more than 30 countries. Destinations range from North America and the Middle East to the United Kingdom, Europe, South East Asia, North Asia and Africa.
Established in 1983, the UK base has continued to build upon and develop new market opportunities and now has an extensive network of distributors throughout Europe and Ireland with its head office distribution centre located in Hailsham, East Sussex.
Philmac is part of the Aliaxis group, the world’s largest integrated supplier of plastic performance pipe systems.
Research and development is the cornerstone of Philmac’s success. The company has a team of experienced engineers, holds many patented world-leading products and receives regular award recognition.
The Philmac 3G™ range of compression fittings doesn’t just represent the latest technology available; it is the next generation of pipe fitting.
The 3G range is a global platform of pipe fittings. By simply changing the nut, split ring and seal, 3G™ fittings can effectively join any standard of PE pipe including normal gauge, metric and imperial pipe types.
Featuring Philmac’s unique Slide & Tighten® technology, 3G™ compression fittings make installation easy. No insert is required and no force is needed to push the pipe into the fitting. In addition, a visual stop indicator reduces the risk of over tightening.
Philmac Large Bore Metric
Philmac Metric is the second generation of Philmac compression fittings and is one of the fastest, easiest and most reliable connector for joining metric polyethylene pipe. Installing these compression fittings takes one-third of the time of conventional compression fittings because there’s no pipe preparation and no fiddling with loose components. You just slide in the pipe, tighten the nut and the job is done.
The Metric Large Bore range caters for fitting sizes 75mm to 110mm.
Philmac gas threaded fittings are manufactured from high performance, UV resistant propylene material that prevents moisture absorption and sustains product dimensions. The chemical and corrosion resistance provides reliable, long life connections suitable for diverse applications and is a cost effective alternative to metal fittings.
The precision BSP tapered threads have been engineered to maximise sealing performance and the hexagonal body makes them easy to install.
Philmac threaded fittings (excluding risers) are suitable for working pressures up to PN16 (1600kPa, 235psi) for sizes up to 2? and up to PN10 (1000kPa, 145psi) for sizes up to 4?. The fittings are manufactured to ISO9001 quality endorsed standards and include a comprehensive range of plugs, bushes, nipples, sockets, tees, elbows and caps.
