Megapress is made of 1.0308 steel material. Steel pipes in compliance with DIN EN 10255 with threaded pipe quality, DIN EN 10220/10216-1 and DIN EN 10220/10217-1 in boiler pipe quality from sizes 3/8 to 4 inches can be used with Megapress connectors.
Megapress is available for different application using different sealing elements such as EPDM and FKM, including heating/cooling, gas, and special application. Each connector is specially marked for different application. The sealing elements allows operating temperatures with 110°C using EPDM to 140°C using FKM.
Megapress comes with Viega SC-Contur. It is an innovative safety feature that causes guaranteed forced leakage in unpressed connections. It identifies unpressed connections during a leakage test and it can be pressed on the spot without any extra work. The dry testing range is between 22mbar and 3 bar while the wet testing range is from 1.0 bar to 6.5 bar.
The Megapress press-in branch connector is a life-saver solution when it comes to retrofitting connections to an existing steel pipe installation. The complete tool set allows drilling into thick-wall steel pipes and pressing in new connection.
