Viega has extended its Megapress range further with new Easytop ball valves designed for thick-walled steel tube systems. The new products are available in ½” to 2” sizes and with both a standard EPDM sealing element and a Megapress S version with an FKM sealing element suitable for higher temperature applications up to 140C.
The high-quality, German engineered press connection valves are quick, simple and clean to install. As with the rest of the Megapress range, the new valves feature SC-Contur technology that is proven to deliver a 100% positive leak during testing if the fitting is inadvertently unpressed. This reliable method of detecting missed connections prevents costly and time-consuming issues occurring after the installation is complete.
The internal design of the valves and easy to operate actuating lever ensures smooth and accurate control. The structure of the fitting also makes maintenance and servicing simple. The main valve section can be removed for cleaning or replacement if required without the need to modify the pipework.
The extensive range of Viega Easytop system fittings includes products for use on copper stainless-steel and plastic (multilayer) systems in a range of pipe sizes including XL dimensions. The product portfolio also features adapters suitable for threaded and soldered connections.
“We are continually working to expand our range to give building service contractors even greater installation flexibility,” said Scott James, director at Viega. “The new Megapress Easytop valves offer a high-quality solution with the simplicity of press connection technology – overcoming many of the installation issues traditionally associated with thick-walled steel tube.”
