It’s critical to ensure your piping systems are sealed, safe, and performing well. The drawback, of course, is that there’s never a good time to shut down your system to make a repair or new connection.
Fortunately, the engineers at Viega have taken a lot of the pain out of pipe joints. The Viega MegaPress ® carbon steel press fitting system is the first solution for liquid and gas applications in black iron pipe systems.
Working with the system offers a multitude of advantages:
- Easy to use — The carbon steel press fitting system offers more than 200 different engineered fitting configurations for pipe, from 1/2-inch to 2-inch diameter. A simple power tool is all you need to press the fittings into the pipe, creating a perfect seal.
- Fast — Press technology’s simplicity also means you can work quickly. No threading is needed, and without having to deal with extra bulky equipment, you can create seals and joints in small spaces. Installers can make secure connections in less than seven seconds, even when the pipe system is operating at full flow.
- Safe — Because there is no welding or spark involved, the Viega MegaPress system can be applied to gas and volatile liquid applications without danger. The simple,flameless, solder-free installation won’t cause damage to the surrounding area.
- Secure — Suitable for use with ASTM Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 black iron pipe, Viega MegaPress fittings are approved for more applications than any other carbon steel press fitting system. Seals are consistent and don’t compromise the integrity of the pipe.
Viega MegaPress fittings are available with a choice of two sealing elements:
- EPDM for chilled water, steam, compressed air, and many other applications
- HNBR for gas or fuel oil applications
In addition to the carbon steel fittings for black iron pipe, Viega offers press-system fittings in stainless steel, copper, and polymer.
As the leader in pipe-joining systems, Viega provides the largest variety of fitting sizes and configurations on the market. Regardless of your application or the urgency of your need, you’ll find the solution with this handy system.
