MegaPressG: A Big Hit at AHR Expo

We knew there was a pent-up demand for our MegaPressG fittings in larger sizes, but we were still surprised at the reactions the new fittings got at AHR Expo this week.

Informed that MegaPressG is now available in 2½" to 4", customers at our booth called the fittings “game changing” and “just what we’ve been waiting for.”

MegaPressG is the first press fitting system for carbon steel pipe approved for use in gas and fuel oil applications. And it’s the only system on the market that allows secure press connections on gas lines 2½" to 4" in 16 seconds or less.

Constructed of carbon steel with a corrosion-resistant zinc nickel coating and first-of-its-kind graphite separator ring in larger sizes, MegaPressG is suitable for use with ASTM Schedule 5 to Schedule 40 carbon steel pipe. The fittings are available in a variety of configurations.

Using MegaPressG means no open flames, faster connections and labor savings, resulting in safer and more efficient projects that come in on time and on budget. It can reduce labor costs by as much as 60% to 90% over traditional methods.

The larger MegaPressG fittings shared booth space at AHR with two more new products that also got people’s attention: MegaPress FKM for carbon steel (in larger sizes) and MegaPress 316 FKM.

MegaPress FKM is the first and only choice for joining ½" to 4" carbon steel pipe with an FKM sealing element. It’s suitable for renovations, repairs or installation of new carbon steel pipe systems. It’s approved for use in hydronic heating, compressed air, fire protection, cooling water, marine applications and more.

MegaPress fittings in 316 stainless steel are the industry’s first press fittings for Schedule 10 to Schedule 40 piping systems. MegaPress 316 with an FKM sealing element is suitable for use with hydronic applications, compressed air, industrial gases, marine applications and more. Available in sizes ½" to 4", it saves labor cost and system downtime.

Of course, all these fittings come with Viega’s Smart Connect technology to help identify unpressed connections.

We had a great time as always at the expo and look forward to helping customers put our new products to use.
