Viega's ProPress system flamelessly joins stainless steel piping
The Viega ProPress system is available for joining stainless steel piping in sizes from 1/2 inch to 4 inches using press technology to secure pipe connections. The system, consisting of stainless steel pipe, valves and fittings, provides a flameless way to make water-tight and gas-tight stainless steel connections.
The Viega ProPress system is available in two stainless steel grades, 304 and 316, and with 600 fitting configurations. There are three sealing elements available for the stainless system: EPDM, HNBR and FKM. The EPDM sealing element is used in any type of water system and for low-pressure steam; the HNBR sealing element is designed for fuel oil and gas systems; and the FKM sealing element is used for applications where increased chemical resistance is required, as well as for low-pressure steam.
The Viega ProPress system can be installed wet or dry. It can also be adapted to existing piping system with adapters and flanges.
A Smart Connect feature provides a way for installers to identify connections that need pressing, so that they are not missed.
