New Viega MegaPress, MegaPressG, and ProPress Valves Complete Press Plumbing Systems

Viega is adding to its lineup of MegaPress®, MegaPressG®, and ProPress® valves to become the complete press system solution for contractors.

Using press fittings and valves engineered and manufactured by Viega means contractors no longer have to mix and match products from different manufacturers. Instead, they can rely on only the Viega brand, which introduced pressing to North America and continues to lead the industry.

Viega valves are made to the same quality standards as its press fittings and are approved for a wide range of uses.

Here is a breakdown of Viega’s new valves:

MegaPressG Valves

Like MegaPressG fittings, the new MegaPressG valves are designed for oil and gas applications and can withstand harsh, corrosive mediums. They are available in ½ inch to 2 inches with larger sizes to come later this year. Other features include:

  • Carbon steel alloy with corrosion-resistant zinc nickel coating
  • HNBR sealing element for fuels and gases (For a guide to sealing elements, go here.)
  • For use with ASTM Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 carbon steel pipe
  • Can reduce labor costs by up to 90 percent

MegaPress Valves

Viega now manufactures MegaPress three-piece ball valves in 2½ to 4 inches for carbon and stainless steel pipe pressing systems. Previously they were available only in ½ inch to 2 inches.

The valves are approved for all MegaPress applications, excluding natural gas. The carbon steel valve is available with EPDM or FKM sealing elements. The 304 stainless steel valve has an FKM sealing element, while the 316 stainless steel valve has an EPDM sealing element.

Faster, easier, and flame-free installation of valves will make industrial maintenance and installation programs more efficient by minimizing downtime and keeping projects on schedule.

ProPress Valves

Viega ProPress valves are now available in 2½ to 4 inches for use with copper and stainless CTS pipe. Previously they were available only in ½ inch to 2 inches.

Approved for potable water, hydronic water, and many other applications, they come in a variety of configurations, including ball, check, and butterfly. Zero lead, brass, and stainless alloys are available.

All valves are designed to withstand tough jobsite conditions and ensure connections across entire systems. All are equipped with Viega’s Smart Connect® technology, which makes it easy to identify unpressed connections.
