Viega was the first to offer press joining systems in Australia, the first to offer a proven method to verify secure connections and the first to offer the same time-saving press technology in multiple materials. Viega Propress systems also offer Viega Smart Connect technology, which helps installers easily identify unpressed connections.
Best drinking water quality
Cold or hot water – Viega Propress offers the right components for every drinking water installation – of course, with certified quality.
Thanks to high quality materials and components, Viega Propress provides drinking water installations that are corrosion-resistant and sealed over the longer term. The system has WaterMark certification in accordance to AS 3688 standard, license No. LN21120. This requires testing to AS/NZS4020, which guarantees peace of mind when used for the drinking water installations. Viega Propress is therefore approved for the Australian market with dimensions DN 15 to DN 100 for connection of AS 1432 copper tube; types A, B and C.
Viega Propress products for drinking water installations are easy to identify from the green dot on the bead and are fitted with a black EPDM sealing element. The high-quality sealing element is designed to withstand temperatures of –20 degrees Celsius to 110 degrees Celsius and is pressure-resistant up to 1600 kPa.
Safety is a top priority for gas installations. Propress G ensures that installation specialists already work to the right safety standards throughout the installation procedure. Thanks to Viega, using the press technology ensures complete installations can be finished amazingly fast, efficiently and, most importantly, with no fire hazards. Brazing is yesterday’s technology!
Virtually manipulation proof
Once Viega Propress fittings have been pressed, they can no longer be separated. This makes the press connections virtually impossible to manipulate or interfere with. Another safety bonus: thanks to the Viega Smart Connect-Feature, is that unpressed Propress G fittings are visibly leaky during a leakage test.
Mistakes are out of the question
The yellow dot on the bead, a yellow rectangle with the word “GAS” as well as yellow HNBR sealing element make the Viega Propress G visually distinctive and clearly identifiable. The yellow packaging is also easily distinguished at a glance from the Viega Propress components for drinking water installation.
Quality assured reliability
Viega Propress G has a yellow HNBR sealing element designed to withstand temperatures from –40 to 70 degrees Celsius as well as a maximum pressure of 1000 kPa. The system is approved for the entire Australian market – in dimen-sions DN 15 to DN 100 for connection of AS 1432 copper tube; types A and B.
All Viega press fittings offer a unique safety factor: the Viega Smart Connect-Feature. Thanks to this technology, which has been tried and tested a million times, unpressed fittings are guaranteed to leak during the pressure test.
Unpressed fittings are visibly permeable Viega press fittings with Smart Connect-Feature work with both compressed air and water. If the connection has a leak, the “dry” leakage test will show a visible pressure decrease over the entire pressure range from 2,2 kPa to 300 kPa. If the leakage test is carried out with water, this visibly escapes from the unpressed fittings in the pressure range of 100 kPa to 650 kPa. Another advantage of the Viega press connection is the cylindrical pipe insertion. This prevents damage to the sealing element during the assembly process.
