RAUTITAN Water

RAUTITAN is the original PE-Xa piping system. In 1988 REHAU invented compression sleeve jointing technology, and RAUTITAN was born. Created through years of research and development, RAUTITAN combines installation speed and ease of use with security and reliability to provide the ultimate plumbing system for modern construction projects.


The system consists of 4 key elements:

PIPES

REHAU PE-Xa and PE-Xa/Al/PE pipes set the benchmark for performance, quality and reliability.

OPTIMUM FLEXIBILITY AND KINK RESISTANCE

RAUTITAN pipes are made of PE-Xa, which requires a production process that creates the highest degree of crosslinking. This ensures optimum flexibility and the highest kink resistance. The highly malleable Aluminium layer coupled with thicker PE-Xa inliner makes RAUTITAN PE-Xa/Al/PE more flexible and kink resistant.

TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE RESISTANCE RAUTITAN

PE-Xa pipes are rated PN20 SDR7.4) and thus exceed AS/NZS 3500 standard requirements for hot water application.

Life expectancy of PE-Xa water pipes is 50 years under continuous hot water operation  temperature 70°C and pressure 1.33MPa*.

*As per AS/NZS 2492.

PIONEERS OF PE-X

With more than 40 years experience in the production of PE-Xa pipe for multiple applications, the strictest of internal and external quality control from raw material supplier to delivery of finished product, REHAU RAUTITAN pipe stands as the benchmark for PE-Xa piping systems in the Australian plumbing industry.

More than 3.5 billion meters of PE-X pipe installed in over 50 countries.

FITTINGS

REHAU's advanced materials development and unrivaled experience ensures unparalleled performance and reliability for the perfect, leak-free connection.

PXsr FITTINGS

The future of plumbing, our PXsr fitting provides the ultimate in hygiene and corrosion resistance and is resistant to aggressive solvents that can be found on construction sites

DZR BRASS FITTINGS

The RAUTITAN ONE brass fitting is the universal solution for gas, hot & cold water and heating applications.

LIGHTER, EASIER, FASTER

5 times lighter than traditional brass fittings. So you can carry more and get the job done faster.

NO CORROSION

Made from advanced PVDF material, the fitting is 100% corrosion resistant.

CLEAN, HYGIENIC, SAFE

PXsr fittings are designed for the future. PVDF material is known for its cleanliness and contains 0% lead to ensure the cleanest drinking water.

SOLVENT RESISTANT

Does not suffer environmental stress cracking when in contact with solvent such as glues, primers and thread sealants

ONE FITTING, ALL APPLICATIONS

REHAU’s RAUTITAN ONE fitting range is the only compression system suitable for water, gas and hydronic heating. Suitable for use with the polymer sleeve – save time, reduce your inventory and keep it simple.

HIGHEST CORROSION RESISTANCE

  • The Australian standard (AS2345) states DZR brass fittings should have an average corrosion depth of 100μm.
  • REHAU RAUTITAN ONE fittings have a maximum corrosion depth of only 50μm.
  • More than double the corrosion resistance than the Australian Standard.


100% PRESSURE TESTED

REHAU is the only manufacturer to pressure tests every single fitting. A guarantee and reassurance that is unmatched in the market

SLEEVES

Easy-slide reversible sleeve approved for use with both gas and hot & cold water.

PX sleeves - 1071993


REVERSIBLE

The PX sleeve is reversible, meaning it can be put on in either direction. This means no need to check the sleeve for the chamfered ends

and zero connection mistakes. Just pick up the sleeve from the box, slip it over the pipe, expand, compress, DONE!

Do you know the cost of a connection mistake?

MORE BATTERY LIFE

The PX sleeve requires less initial force to secure the joint. This is because PVDF maintains its tightness as the pipe ages. Brass doesn’t, so it needs to be over-tightened initially to compensate. PVDF also slides more easily along the pipe surface.

40% less force means up to 70% longer battery life. PX sleeve ensures less time charging your tool and less downtime.

MORE SECURE

A PX sleeve thermally expands and contracts with the pipe, ensuring an even force of compression between sleeve, pipe and barb throughout fluctuating operating temperatures.

FASTER

The PX sleeve requires less initial force to secure the joint. The easy-slide nature of the material combined with reversibility of the sleeve means the fastest compression system on the market.

20% faster than brass sleeve compression systems.

TOOLS

With a full selection of manual, hydraulic and battery powered options, our RAUTOOL range will help you make light work of any installation.

SUPERIOR HANDLING AND RELIABILITY

REHAU tools offer the most advanced ergonomic design to allow for easier and faster installation, designed for specific and exclusive use with RAUTITAN pipes and fittings. Why? Because the reliability of the system is dependent on matching the dimensions and tolerance of pipe, fitting and tool. Anything less is a compromise!

Up to 20,000 compressions without a service.

LONGEST BATTERY LIFE

REHAU’s lithium battery is of the highest quality, and has proven to be one of the longest lasting compression tools.

Up to 200 compressions on a single battery.

UNIFORM PIPE EXPANSION

Expansion of the pipe is critical for the leak-tight joint. REHAU’s expansion head segments are made from a specially engineered high tensile steel and are held in place by rivets, maximising durability and ensuring uniform segment expansion, every time.

Rivets prevent segments spinning in the housing during head rotation
