Viega Announces New MegaPress 3-Piece Ball Valve
Viega LLC is proud to announce that 3-Piece Ball Valves are now available for its MegaPress® carbon and stainless steel pipe pressing systems.
The newest component of Viega’s MegaPress system is approved for all MegaPress applications, excluding natural gas. It’s available in ½”, ¾”, 1”, 1¼”, 1½” and 2” sizes.
It is available in multiple materials for specific applications. The carbon steel valve is available with EPDM and FKM sealing elements. The 304 stainless steel valve has an FKM sealing element, while the 316 stainless steel valve has an EPDM sealing element. Repair kits and replacement handles also are available.
The valves will make industrial maintenance and installation programs faster and more efficient by minimizing downtime and keeping projects on schedule, said Paige Riddle, product manager, valves. “MegaPress is all about allowing end users to operate more productively; the new 3-Piece Ball Valves add one more valuable component to the system,” she said.
As with other MegaPress fittings, secure connections with the ball valves can be made in seven seconds or less with no adapters. Pressing technology doesn’t require fire or flame, so there’s no need for burn permits or fire watch. It also eliminates the danger of contamination caused by thread cutting oil or filings.
The valves are equipped with Viega’s patented Smart Connect® technology, which makes it easy to identify unpressed connections.
