System press tools

General

System press tools

For all Viega press systems from DN10–DN100.

Viega system press tools can be used with all metallic Viega press systems as well as for Geopress and PE‑Xc press systems.

The proven system press machines Pressgun 5 and Pressgun Picco are equipped with the latest lithium ion technology, the highest battery capacity combined with optimal cold resistance. A power pack is also available.

The system press machines Pressgun 5 and Pressgun Picco are equipped with an innovative safety technology and have an LED display.

The rotatable press head of Pressgun 5 and Pressgun Picco as well as the low weight allow easy handling. The innovative press rings with hinged adapter jaw allow pressings in hard-​to-​access spaces as well as in shafts and pre-​wall constructions.

The geometry and press contour of the system press jaws, chains and rings is optimally harmonised with the press connectors.

Authorized Viega service points for system press tools offer a high level of system reliability.

The functional safety and permanent leak tightness of the Viega press systems primarily depends on the functional and operational safety of the Viega system press tools, i.e. the Viega press machine plus Viega system press jaw, ring, chain, and hinged adapter jaw. The Viega system pres tools have been specifically designed for and adapted to the installation of the Viega press systems. Viega does not check whether these system press tools can be used for pressing other manufacturers' systems. In particular, no statement can be made on whether it is possible to create permanently leakproof connections in this way.

Maintenance tips for Viega system press tools:
  • System press machines
Viega system press machines generate a specified pressure for the pressing process. To guarantee operational safety, a leak-​free hydraulic system is required; however, natural wear and tear on such heavily used components is unavoidable. To ensure the continuous operational safety and reliability of the system press machines, these must be maintained regularly. Usually, tools are sent for maintenance to the service points named by Viega, or maintained on the occasion of local promotions at service points at the specialist wholesaler's.

  • System press jaws, chains, ring and hinged adapter jaws.
It is recommended that the system press jaws, chains and rings are also inspected together with maintenance of the system press machines. During the procedure, wear parts are replaced, press jaw contours are revised and the system press jaws, chains and rings are reset. Since 2012, the Viega system press jaws have been provided with maintenance stickers which show the next recommended inspection date.
Example: next service 3rd quarter of 2020. New stickers after successful servicing by a Viega service point.
