Viega Introduces MegaPressG Fittings in Larger Sizes
March 11, 2020
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 year in Orlando. Viega 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. The system 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. MegaPressG fittings are equipped with the patented Viega Smart Connect® technology, which allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections during pressure testing.
