Viega has extended its unique range of Megapress press connections with an innovation engineered for larger thick walled steel pipework. The new cold applied Megapress XL system is safer, cleaner and delivers time savings of up to 80% when compared with welding.

Megapress XL allows thick walled steel tube with diameters between 2½ and 4 inches to be press connected. The specially engineered sealing element within the connector ensures a robust, leak proof seal on a range of materials including seamless, welded, black, galvanised, epoxy-resin-coated and industrially painted tube.

As a cold applied press connection system, Megapress XL eliminates the fire and burn risks associated with welding and the heavy machinery needed to create a threaded tube.

The zinc-nickel coated steel connectors are suitable for applications including heating and cooling systems and is rated for operating temperatures up to 140°C. An extensive range of sleeves, elbows, adapters, reducers, T-pieces and flanges provides flexibility to meet the demands of any installation.

Viega’s compact pressgun allows easy installation, even for overhead pipework or where space is limited. The lightweight Pressgun press booster, developed for use with larger Megapress XL connections is compatible with existing Viega tools and has been designed for easy use.
