Viega ProPress® System for Stainless Gains Industry Certification

WICHITA, KAN. - The Viega ProPress® system for stainless steel obtained certification through the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) for its 1/2" to 4" size fittings.

The system, consisting of stainless steel pipe, valves and fittings, provides a faster, more reliable, flameless way to make water-tight and gas-tight stainless steel connections.

The fittings were submitted for approval under the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) code for pressure piping, B31. This code outlines requirements for piping that is found in a variety of industrial applications including petroleum refineries, chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor and cryogenic plants.

The Viega ProPress system for stainless meets the ASME requirements for dimension, pressure and temperature ratings, materials, identification markings and service that demonstrate a high standard of safety. This certification approves the Viega ProPress system for use with boiler piping, compressed air, chilled water and other piping applications.

"This new certification supports the safety that Viega already provides for its customers," said Monty Betts, associate product manager at Viega.

ASME's technical standards improve safety and efficiency and are accepted in over 100 countries as operating standards.
