What Makes Viega Different?

Viega press fitting systems are built to last. The fittings are secured with stainless steel grip rings that use over 5,000 pounds of force and include a separator ring and sealing element outside the flow path to increase the system’s lifespan. They can withstand a broad range of pressures, temperatures, and applications. Viega fitting systems deliver unrivaled consistency, press-after-press.

Benefits of Viega Pipe Pressing Technology

With Viega press fittings, installation, repair and maintenance jobs can be completed in less time than with other joining methods.

  • Reduce Downtime – Unplanned downtime can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars an hour. Viega pipe fittings can reduce install time by up to 90%.
  • Eliminate Hot Work – Soldering and welding equipment is responsible for nearly 1,200 fires, costing $150 million in property damage. Viega press fittings require no open flames or hot work permits, eliminating the need for a fire watch.
  • Faster, Consistent Connections – A simple 11 joint assembly takes just under 11 minutes to press. Compared to more than two-and-a-half hours of welding, Viega products can be pressed wet or dry, making secure connections in seconds.
  • Reliable + Quality Installation – Unlike groove or threaded pipe connections that reduce pipe wall thickness, Viega fittings preserve pipe integrity and come factory assembled for maximum consistency and performance in the field.
