Vic-PressVictaulic designed the Vic-Press, a flame-free press system that joins pipe in seconds. This press-to-connect system, designed for off-the-shelf stainless steel pipe, is an industrial-grade solution for quickly and reliably joining small-diameter piping systems. Pipe is cut to size and deburred, marked for visual verification, and inserted into a lubricated coupling, fitting, or valve. A handheld tool presses the component onto the pipe-end, providing a positive mechanical interlock and creating a rigid, permanent, leak-tight joint. Press detection technology confirms any unpressed joints as the system is filled. This system reduces rework and requires 70% fewer hours than welding to install.
