Viega adds caps and flanges to its MegaPress system
Viega has introduced caps and flanges in sizes 1/2 to 2 inches for the Viega MegaPress system. Viega MegaPress uses press technology for installing Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 black iron pipe. More than 200 fittings are available ranging in sizes from 1/2 to 2 inches that include elbows, couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, threaded adapters, unions, caps and flanges. The system uses a stainless steel grip ring with an EPDM sealing element for the standard Viega MegaPress fittings, or HNBR for the Viega MegaPressG fittings, along with a stainless steel separator ring that ensures the sealing element and grip ring perform at maximum capacity. The Smart Connect feature provides a way for installers to identify connections that need pressing, so that they are not missed.
Viega’s MegaPress system is UL and FM compliant for fire sprinkler applications and ASME B31 compliant for pressure and boiler piping, and the MegaPressG fittings are CSA LC4 compliant for fuel gas and oil applications.
