Viega press fittings for IPS stainless steel
Viega’s new MegaPress stainless press fittings are designed for iron pipe-size stainless steel and make secure connections in less than seven seconds, which helps keep a project on time or ahead of schedule, the company notes. Viega adds the fittings can reduce installation time by up to 60% compared to welding or threading. The fittings are equipped with the patented Viega Smart Connect feature, which allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections during pressure testing. The fittings are available in 304 and 316 stainless steel. The new offering also is approved for use with Schedule 10 and Schedule 40 pipe.
