Viega Megapress can be used to reliably press even thick-walled steel pipes. The pipe-moulded connectors made of 1.0308 steel material with a zinc-nickel coating provide the highest quality, robustness and durability.
Steel pipes in compliance with DIN EN 10255 in threaded pipe quality and complying with DIN EN 10220/10216-1 and DIN EN 10220/10217-1 in boiler pipe quality in sizes from 3⁄8 to 4 inches can be connected reliably and easily using the Viega Megapress system.
Viega Megapress also features the SC-Contur of course, though in slightly modified form: Whereas the forced leakage is normally created by a small channel on the sealing element, Megapress achieves it by optimising the tolerance between the press connector and the steel pipe. This is the best answer to the special demands imposed on a connector made by the different wall thicknesses and surfaces of steel pipes. Megapress becomes a flexible steel pipe connector system by matching the connector diameter to the large number of steel pipe variants. And here, too, the forced leakage from inadvertently unpressed connections is immediately detectable based on the emergence of water.
Viega Megapress is not suitable for installation in potable water pipes. The fact is clearly indicated by a marking on each press connection point. This rules out mixing up or accidental incorrect use of Viega Megapress.
