In harsh industrial environments, piping systems have the potential to come in contact with corrosive cleaning liquids. That’s the case for both food production and pharmaceutical manufacturing, where machines and equipment must be kept highly sanitary to avoid contamination.
Oftentimes, the application of corrosive chemicals involves a floor-to-ceiling wash. While this helps ensure every area gets hit, it also leaves pipes subject to interactions with the liquids. And if these systems are unable to withstand the impact of the chemicals, they are bound to grow weaker and show signs of damage over time.
With Viega ProPress® Stainless, these sources of stress become a thing of the past. The dependable solution not only tolerates corrosive chemicals but it also minimizes downtime that stalls productivity and tacks on extra costs.
Viega ProPress Stainless: A System Designed for Harsh Industrial Environments
Viega ProPress Stainless is a product approved for more than 225 applications. The complete solution includes pipe, valves and fittings and is available in two industrial grades—304 and 316—in sizes ½" to 4".
This extensive list of variations is paired with the option to choose from three sealing elements: ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) and fluoroelastomer (FKM). Amongst other applications, the FKM sealant is recommended specifically as a means of protection against various chemicals. This means corrosive cleaning chemicals can do their job without compromising the integrity of pipes or fittings.
The installation process of Viega ProPress Stainless provides significant benefits as well. As an alternative to traditional welding, Viega ProPress Stainless takes projects that would normally take weeks to complete and finishes them in a matter of days. The ability to make fast, reliable connections under flow removes the need for full shutdowns, which allows you to get your project up and running with less down time and fewer costs.
It’s reasons like these that make Viega ProPress Stainless the first choice for industrial projects. To learn more about the value of the product in the industrial environment and hear from individuals who have already experienced its benefits, tune into the video below:
