More than 25 years ago, Viega introduced the original press fitting technology that revolutionized pipe joining. Now Viega innovation is improving efficiency for more applications than ever before with the introduction of new MegaPress® Stainless press fittings.
Designed for Iron Pipe Size (IPS) stainless steel, the new line of MegaPress Stainless fittings makes secure connections in less than seven seconds, which helps keep a project on time or ahead of schedule. In fact, they can reduce installation time by up to 60% compared to welding or threading.
Combining productivity with peace-of-mind, the new MegaPress Stainless fittings are equipped with the patented Viega Smart Connect® feature, which allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections during pressure testing. And MegaPress Stainless fittings offer the same proven quality and durability as all Viega products, bringing complete confidence to every job.
“Viega has a heritage of bringing better ideas to market, one of which was the launch of the industry’s first press fitting technology in 1989,” said Dominic Küng, Viega Product Manager for Metals. “Through the introduction of MegaPress fittings for IPS stainless steel, we’re making our original innovation available for a broader range of applications – offering a new solution that helps keep projects on time and on budget.”
MegaPress Stainless fittings are available in 304 and 316 stainless steel. The new MegaPress Stainless offering for IPS is also approved for use with Schedule 10 and Schedule 40 pipe.
