Viega Introduces New Reducer and Union Fittings for the MegaPress® and MegaPressG Systems
Twelve new P x P reducer and P x FPT union options are available for the Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems for carbon steel piping systems.
Viega introduces 12 new reducer and union options for the Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems for schedule 5 to schedule 40 carbon steel piping systems in sizes 1/2" to 2".
The Viega MegaPress system uses 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. Viega MegaPressG fittings are designed for use in fuel oil and natural gas applications.
The MegaPress and MegaPressG P x P reducers and P x FPT unions are available in 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2" and 2" sizes.
“Viega is happy to introduce the new series of reducers and unions to the MegaPress system,” said Derek Bower, product director, metal systems at Viega. “Our continuously growing Viega MegaPress line makes it even easier to use this innovative system for a large number of commercial, industrial and residential applications.”
More than 200 Viega MegaPress fittings are available ranging in sizes from 1/2" to 2" that include elbows, couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, threaded adapters, caps, flanges and unions. The fittings use a stainless steel grip ring with an EPDM sealing element for the Viega MegaPress system, or HNBR for the Viega MegaPressG, 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 system is easy to use, flameless and environmentally friendly. It makes secure, water-tight and air-tight connections in seconds. The system performs well in both new installations and retrofit projects. The innovative addition to Viega’s product line leaves no joining material buildup, exposed threads or tarnish creating a clean, professional appearance. Viega MegaPress is also FM- and UL-compliant.
The patented Smart Connect® feature, available only from Viega, allows water to flow past an unpressed fitting, providing installers with added confidence in their connections.
Since the Viega MegaPress system is flameless, it is safer than traditional systems and eliminates the need for hot work permits. The system is clean, requiring no welding rods or cutting oils. It can be installed under flow conditions, making it ideal for maintenance or emergency repair jobs, and reducing costly downtime by decreasing plant shutdowns. The press technology also 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 MegaPressG fittings are CSA LC4 compliant for fuel gas and oil applications. The system meets the most rigorous testing codes and standards in North America and is warranted against defects and workmanship.
