Viega Expands FKM Sealing Element Offerings
Viega LLC is introducing new sizes for its MegaPress® FKM line, while also adding an all-new MegaPress® 316 FKM line.
Both systems of additional MegaPress FKM fittings were introduced at AHR Expo earlier this month in Orlando, Fla.
MegaPress FKM is now available in ½” to 4″ fittings for carbon steel pipe. It’s suitable for renovations, repairs or installation of new carbon steel pipe systems. It’s approved for use in hydronic heating, compressed air, fire protection, cooling water, marine applications and more. It can even be installed on noncombustible/nonflammable lines that are not completely shut down, eliminating the need to fully drain a system, which shortens repair and installation time.
Viega was the first to introduce stainless steel press fittings for Schedule 10 to Schedule 40 piping systems with its launch of MegaPress 316 (with an EPDM sealing element). With the introduction of MegaPress 316 FKM fittings, Viega increases its stainless steel configurations by more than 150 SKUs. MegaPress 316 FKM is suitable for use with hydronic applications, compressed air, industrial gases, marine applications and excels in harsh environments. Available in sizes ½” to 4″, it saves labor cost and system downtime.
Both products are offered in configurations including elbows, couplings, no-stop couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, adapters, unions, caps and flanges.
The new fittings come with Viega’s patented Smart Connect® technology, which makes it easier to help identify unpressed connections.
