System press tools for all Viega press connector systems. System press tools consisting of: press machine, press jaw, press ring, press chain and (hinged) adapter jaw. These system press tools have been developed and tailored specifically for the installation of Viega press connector systems. The functional safety of Viega press connector systems depends primarily on the faultless condition of the press tools used.
Labeling Manufacturer, pipe dimension or system name
Note 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.
Service Notes 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. By this, moving parts are lubricated, pressing contours are reworked and the press jaws, rings, chains and (hinged) adapter jaws are checked for damage and dimensional accuracy. Please fulfil your duty of care and follow these maintenance notices. The general principle "safety through maintenance" applies! From 2024, the press jaws and hinged adapter jaws will have a service sticker with QR code. This refers to the instructions for maintenance and care of the Viega system press jaws in the online catalogue.
