MegaPress G press fitting technology from Viega is now available for carbon steel pipe in 2-1/2, 3 and 4 in. sizes. The new fittings join the current MegaPressG offerings of 1/2 to 2 in. fittings to create a wider lineup of fittings approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications.
The Viega system allows secure press connections on gas lines in 16 seconds or less and can reduce labour costs by as much as 60 to 90 percent over traditional methods.
Constructed of carbon steel with a corrosion-resistant zinc nickel coating and graphite separator ring in larger sizes, the technology is suitable for use with ASTM Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 carbon steel pipe.
Configurations include elbows, couplings, no-stop couplings, reducers, tees, reducing tees, adapters, reducing adapters, caps and flanges.
