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 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
Geopress K is compatible with all standard PE piping materials. PE-80, PE-100, PE-RC and PE-X, with SDR 11 pipe and available in sizes 25 mm to 63mm for water and 32 mm to 63 mm for gas.
The green clamping ring of the Geopress K connector fulfils two functions at once. First, it acts as a grab ring to resist tensile forces and second; it serves as an unmistakable marker that the connection is correctly pressed. This is because the green clamping ring will only become visible on the outside of the pipe if the connection was pressed completely and safely.
Tensile stress resistant
European certification of the Geopress K connector confirms that the connection will remain tight and firm even under extreme tensile stress. The clamping ring connects pipe and connector permanently, even digger shovels cannot destroy it.
Optimal hydraulic design
Thanks to its optimised internal geometry, the Geopress K connectors, elbows and T-pieces provide optimal flow characteristics.
