Viega Introduces MegaPressG Fittings in Larger Sizes
Viega’s MegaPress®G press fitting technology is now available for carbon steel pipe up to 4″. Three new fitting sizes were introduced at AHR Expo earlier this month in Orlando.
Viega, the leader in press fitting technology, is introducing MegaPressG fittings for 2½”, 3″ and 4″ pipe. The new fittings join the current MegaPressG offerings of ½” to 2” fittings to create a comprehensive lineup of fittings approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications. And it’s the only system on the market that allows secure press connections on gas lines 2½” to 4″ in 16 seconds or less.
Constructed of carbon steel with a corrosion-resistant zinc nickel coating and first-of-its-kind graphite separator ring in larger sizes, MegaPressG is suitable for use with ASTM Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 carbon steel pipe.
Using MegaPressG means no open flames, faster connections and labor savings, resulting in safer and more efficient projects that come in on time and on budget. It can reduce labor costs by as much as 60% to 90% over traditional methods.
Configurations include elbows, couplings, no-stop couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, adapters, reducing adapters, caps and flanges.
Combining productivity with peace of mind, MegaPressG fittings are equipped with the patented Viega Smart Connect® technology, which allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections during pressure testing. And MegaPressG fittings offer the same proven quality and durability as all Viega products, bringing complete confidence to every job.
“Since Viega first introduced MegaPressG fittings, customers have been asking for them in larger sizes,” said William Dutcher, Viega Product Manager for Metals, IPS. “The new fittings will allow customers to experience the time savings and consistent quality connections on an even greater number and variety of jobs.”
