Flow-optimised, chrome-plated press connector system made of copper (99.9 % Cu-DHP), gunmetal or silicon bronze for chrome-plated copper pipes. Press connectors for protecting the sealing element equipped with cylindrical pipe guide. The pressing force is located before and behind the sealing element seat. Suitable for concealed and pre-wall installations of riser pipes and floor installations.
Press connector with SC‑Contur Inadvertently unpressed connections are noticed immediately during a leakage test. Viega guarantees the detection of unpressed connections in the following pressure ranges: min. water pressure: 0.1 MPa / 1 bar / 14.5 PSI max. water pressure: 0.65 MPa / 6.5 bar / 94.3 PSI min. air pressure: 22 hPa / 22 mbar / 0.3 PSI max. air pressure: 0.3 MPa / 3 bar / 43.5 PSI
Sealing elements EPDM (ethylene propylene diene rubber), black, pre-assembled
Dimensions d12–18, size availability in accordance with the national regulations
Tools The functional safety of Viega press connector systems depends primarily on the faultless condition of the press tools used. For the manufacture of press connections, Viega recommends the use of Viega press tools. Viega press tools have to be regularly maintained by authorised service partners.
Areas of application Potable water Heating/radiator connection
Note Use of the system for areas of application and media other than those described must be agreed in consultation with Viega! Detailed information about applications, restrictions and national standards and directives can be found in the product information, either printed or on the Viega website.
Note – Standards and approvals Press connectors tested in accordance with DVGW Worksheet W 534 with DVGW test mark. Press connectors suitable for copper pipes in accordance with DIN EN 1057 and DVGW Worksheet GW 392. For use in heating systems, observe VDI Regulation 2035 and DIN EN 12828.
Note – Limitations of use potable water The press connector system Profipress is suitable for the creation of potable water installations according to DIN 1988‑200 and EN 806‑2 in consideration of the selection of material in accordance with DIN EN 12502‑1 and according to the evaluation basis for metallic materials in contact with potable water of the Umweltbundesamt (UBA) (Federal Environment Agency). When used for other areas of use and when in doubt about the right selection of material, please contact Viega. With regard to the possible exceeding of the limit value for copper ions according to the Potable Water Ordinance (PWO), pipes and connectors made of copper may only be used when the pH value is ≥ 7.4 or the total volume of organic carbon does not exceed TOC = 1.5 mg/l at values between pH = 7.0–7.4!
