As soon as Viega LLC introduced its MegaPressG fitting system for joining gas and fuel oil pipes, contractors began asking for it in larger sizes.
The original lineup included fittings for carbon steel pipes from ½” to 2″. They were the first fittings approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications and they quickly proved popular among contractors for their speed, reliability and ease of use. However, the 2″ limit restricted the number of applications in which they could be used.
In February, Viega introduced MegaPressG fittings for 2½”, 3″ and 4″ pipe, creating a comprehensive lineup of fittings approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications. And it’s the only system on the market that 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.
Combining productivity with peace of mind, MegaPressG fittings are equipped with Viega Smart Connect® technology, which allows installers to easily identify unpressed connections during pressure testing.
MegaPressG fittings offer the same proven quality and durability as all Viega products, bringing complete confidence to every job.
