Flow-optimised press connector system made of copper (99.9 % Cu-DHP), gunmetal or silicon bronze for copper pipes. Press connector for protecting the sealing element equipped with cylindrical pipe guide. Press connector from d64.0 with stainless steel compression ring to ensure the mechanical strength of the connection. The pressing force is located before and behind the sealing element seat. Suitable for concealed and pre-wall installations of manifold and riser pipes.
Labeling Manufacturer, Pipe dimension, Batch, Approval mark (DVGW), Green dot on press end, Detachable orange label as press indicator from d64.0

Note – Standards and approvals Australian watermark approval No.WMKA21120. AS 2419.1 compliant. AS 2441 compliant. AS 2118.1 compliant.
Note – Limitations of use potable water The press connector system Propress is suitable for the creation of potable water installations according to DIN 1988‑200 and EN 806‑2 in consideration of the selection of material in accordance with DIN EN 12502‑1 and according to the evaluation basis for metallic materials in contact with potable water of the Umweltbundesamt (UBA) (Federal Environment Agency). When used for other areas of use and when in doubt about the right selection of material, please contact Viega. With regard to the possible exceeding of the limit value for copper ions according to the Potable Water Ordinance (PWO), pipes and connectors made of copper may only be used when the pH value is ≥ 7.4 or the total volume of organic carbon does not exceed TOC = 1.5 mg/l at values between pH = 7.0–7.4!
Operating conditions potable water installations operating temperature max. 85 °C / 185 °F operating pressure max. 1.6 MPa / 16 bar / 232 PSI
Operating conditions heating installations operating temperature max. 110 °C / 230 °F operating pressure max. 1.6 MPa / 16 bar / 232 PSI
