Viega LLC has introduced Viega MegaPress XL, a press fitting system for 2 ½- to 4-inch diameter carbon steel pipe. Viega also introduced the Viega MegaPress XL PressBooster, a tool designed for larger diameters using an existing 300 Series RIDGID press tool.

Suitable for use with Schedule 10 to Schedule 40 carbon steel pipe, the Viega MegaPress XL, on average, makes connections in 25 seconds. Compared to welding and other pipe joining methods, Viega MegaPress XL saves up to 60 percent in installation costs and up to 90 percent in time. Unlike welding and threading, the press fitting system doesn’t require a fire watch or cutting oils, and it doesn’t create sparks, all while reducing the need for cleanup and callbacks. Viega MegaPress XL features an FKM sealing element that allows it to be installed in higher temperature (up to 284 F) applications.

Available through Viega and RIDGID, the Viega MegaPress XL PressBooster extends the travel of the ram to increase force and comes with 2 ½-, 3- and 4-inch press rings and a built-in actuator. With the Viega MegaPress XL PressBooster, users can make press connections on larger diameter pipe without needing to purchase another press tool.

Ideal for industrial, commercial and residential applications, the Viega MegaPress system is flameless and environmentally friendly. Available in ½- to 4-inch sizes, Viega MegaPress makes connections in seconds. The system performs well in both new installations and retrofit projects. The addition to the Viega product line leaves no joining material buildup, exposed threads or tarnish, creating a clean appearance. Viega MegaPressG fittings in sizes ½- through 2-inches are designed for use in fuel oil and natural gas applications. Patented Smart Connect technology provides installers with added confidence in their ability to ensure the integrity of connections.
