Pipe Tools: Viega MegaPress System for Black Iron Pipe

Viega introduces the new MegaPress and MegaPressG systems for installing schedule 5 to schedule 40 black iron pipe in sizes from 1/2 to 2 inches. The systems make secure water-tight and air-tight connections in under seven seconds. The systems are now available in professional distribution channels throughout the U.S.

The Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems use modern cold press connections for pipe installation. The Viega MegaPress system is ideal for hydronic heat, chilled water, compressed air, fire sprinkler systems, low pressure steam and vacuum lines. The Viega MegaPressG system is designed for use in fuel oil and natural gas applications.

Over 200 fittings are available for both systems ranging in sizes from 1/2 to 2 inches including elbows, couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, threaded adapters and unions. The systems use a stainless steel grip ring with an EPDM sealing element for the Viega MegaPress system, or HNBR for the Viega MegaPressG system, along with a stainless steel separator ring that ensures the sealing element and grip ring perform at maximum capacity.

Ideal for industrial, commercial and residential applications, the Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems are easy to use, flameless and environmentally friendly. The systems perform well in both new installations and retrofit projects.

The Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems use the same pressing tools already used by many contractors and maintenance staff. The pressing tools eliminate the need for expensive and cumbersome equipment including welding tanks and threading machines.

The patented Smart Connect feature, available only from Viega, provides a quick and easy way for installers to identify connections that need pressing, so that they are not missed.

The systems are clean, as they require no welding rods or cutting oils. The Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems can be installed under flow conditions, making them ideal for maintenance or emergency repair jobs, and reducing costly downtime by decreasing plant shutdowns. The press technology for both new systems maintains the structural integrity of the pipe.

Viega’s MegaPress system is FM compliant for fire sprinkler applications and ASME B31 compliant for pressure and boiler piping and the MegaPressG system is CSA LC4 compliant for fuel gas and oil applications. The systems exceed the most rigorous testing codes and standards in North America and are warranted against defects and workmanship.
