MegaPress and MegaPressGViega designed the MegaPress and MegaPressG systems for installing schedule 5 to schedule 40 black iron pipe in sizes of ½ to 2 in. The systems make watertight and airtight connections in less than seven seconds under flow conditions without hot permits, welding rods, or cutting oils. The systems use a stainless-steel grip ring with an EPDM sealing element for the MegaPress system that is ASME B31-compliant for pressure and boiler piping, or HNBR for the MegaPressG system that is CSA LC4-compliant for fuel gas and oil applications. The company’s Smart Connect feature quickly and easily identifies connections that need pressing.
