The Viega system press tools have been developed and tailored specifically for the installation of Viega press connector systems. Viega does not check whether these system press tools can be used for pressing other manufacturers' systems. In particular, no statement can be made on whether it is possible to create permanently leakproof connections in this way. Detailed information concerning applications, limitations and national codes and standards can be found in the product documentation, either printed or on the Viega website.
Press machines generate a specified pressure for the pressing process.
To guarantee operational safety, a leakproof hydraulic system is required. Natural wear and tear on such heavily used components, however, is unavoidable.
To ensure the continuous operational safety and reliability of the system press machines, these must be maintained regularly.
For addresses see operating instructions, instructions for care of Viega system press tools or Viega website.
Usually, tools are sent for maintenance to the authorised service partners specified by Viega, or maintained during local promotions at service partners at the specialist wholesaler.
We strongly recommend having press jaws, press rings, press chains and (hinged) adapter jaws checked during press machine maintenance.
This involves replacing consumables, reworking press jaw contours and resetting the press jaws, press rings, press chains and (hinged) adapter jaws.
Please fulfil your duty of care and follow these maintenance notices.
The general principle "safety through maintenance" applies!
If the advice is not followed, no responsibility for personal injury can be accepted!
Since 2012, the press jaws and (hinged) adapter jaws have been provided with a maintenance label that indicates the next recommended maintenance date.
Yearly changing label colour for better distinction. A new lable is placed after successful servicing by a Viega service partner.
