When it comes to underground pipelines, many factors must be considered. They need to be made of a corrosion-resistant and durable material that can withstand the high strains it will be exposed to. Cost-effectiveness is also important – not just the price of a connector but also the time it takes to install, no matter what the weather conditions.
The solution – by Viega
Geopress K gas satisfies each and every challenge posed by underground installations. The system offers the reliability of press connection technology with internal sealing that’s robust and extremely economical.
The system – versatile
The Geopress K gas system offers the highest possible safety in connection with a great variety of HDPE pipe types. HDPE-80, HDPE-100 and HDPE-100 HSRC – any pipe of the SDR class 11 – can be easily combined with Viega Geopress K gas.
The clamping ring of the Geopress K gas connectors fulfills two functions: On the one hand, it ensures a connection that is high-tensile and, on the other hand, it serves as an unmistakable marker that the connection is correctly pressed. This is because the clamping ring only becomes visible on the outside of the pipe after the pipe has been pressed, thus indicating a complete and safe pressing.
Tensile stress resistant
The approval granted to the Geopress K gas system confirms that the connection will remain tight and firm even under extreme tensile stress. The clamping ring permanently connects the pipe and connector – so that even digger shovels cannot destroy it
Optimal hydraulic design
Thanks to its optimised internal geometry, the Geopress K gas connectors, elbows and T-pieces provide optimal flow characteristics.
