Flow-optimised press connector system with press connectors and pipes made of stainless steel 1.4401. Press connectors for protecting the sealing element equipped with cylindrical pipe guide. Press connectors from d64.0 with stainless steel cutting ring to ensure the mechanical strength of the connection. For protection pipes are equipped with pipe plugs. 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.
Marking Manufacturer, pipe dimension, batch, yellow dot on press end, yellow rectangle with inscription »Gas MOP 5 / GT5« for Sanpress Inox G connectors, yellow rectangle with inscription »Gas MOP 5 / GT1« for Profipress G connectors made of gunmetal, yellow pipe plug, detachable orange label as press indicator from d64.0
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 with compressed air or inert gases: min. air pressure: 22 hPa / 22 mbar / 0.3 PSI max. air pressure: 0.3 MPa / 3 bar / 43.5 PSI
Sealing elements HNBR (hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber), yellow, pre-assembled
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 Natural gas/liquid gas Heating oil Diesel fuel
Note The system components should be protected against high concentrations of chloride generated by both the medium and by external factors. 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.
