Viega introduces the new MegaPress and MegaPress G systems for installing schedule 5 - schedule 40 black iron pipe in sizes 1/2 to 2 inches. The systems, which systems are now available in professional distribution channels throughout the U.S., make secure water-tight and air-tight connections in under seven seconds. The Viega MegaPress and MegaPressG systems use modern cold press connections for pipe installation. More than 200 fittings are available for both systems. The systems use a stainless steel grip ring with an EPDM sealing element for the Viega MegaPress system, or HNBR for the Viega MegaPressG system, along with a stainless steel separator ring that ensures the sealing element and grip ring perform at maximum capacity.
