Geopress K

Now Available!

Geopress K. The most reliable underground supply lines on earth.

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.

Visibly pressed

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.

  • Quick and easy installation in seconds.
  • Component traceability.
  • System is pressure loss optimised.

Tapping Valves. A safe service connection right from the start.

Market leading technology can be identified easily if it makes your work easier – just like the tapping valves of Viega. With 43 various outlets for three systems, they provide the highest flexibility for the job and are the ideal connection to Geopress K. The fittings are also made from high-strength polymer and are available for drinking water (9690TW) and gas (9690G). The material ensures enormous stability and superior durability – features that are of utmost importance for underground installations.

With the tapping valve, the spot drilling of the main supply line takes only a few minutes. It is placed around the pipe like a bracket and tightly connected with the pipe using the press tool. Due to the integrated miller for PE pipes, the drilling can be carried out directly without having to use an external drilling machine. To ensure the anti-twist protection of the tapping valve, a sleeve will be inserted into the drill hole.
