Viega has expanded the Megapress S piping system by the dimensions 3/8 to 2 inches. This means that from now on you can also press thick-walled steel pipes in local and district heating systems. The press connectors can be used from the building entrance for primary and secondary circuits with indirect connection as well as for systems with direct connection. The FKM sealing element used is suitable for operating temperatures up to +140 °C and pressures up to 16 bar.
To quickly identify the Megapress S press-fit connectors with FKM sealing element for higher thermal loads up to 140 °C they are marked with a white dot. Furthermore, each connector has the “FKM” marking as a further indication of the corresponding sealing element. Special components such as the flat-sealing plug-in piece and the PN 25/40 flanges are part of the practical Megapress S product range as well.
The "cold" press connection technique of the Viega pipeline systems Megapress, Megapress S and Megapress S XL has made the installation of thick-walled steel pipes more efficient and safer in one swoop. Depending on the pipe dimension, a joint can be completed up to 80 percent faster than with conventional welding - without any fire risk, even if there is still residual water in the pipe network. This is particularly well received in industrial environments. Considering the good order situation and the shortage of skilled workers, the “cold” press connection technique is a great work relief for installers. The table sums the advantages of Megapress up. On the right, we provide you with useful links and information on the Viega Megapress products.
