Application

Areas of application:

  • Solar installations (flat plate/vacuum collector).
  • District heat supply systems.
  • Low-​pressure steam systems.

Use for systems with additives (e.g. anti-​corrosion or anti-​freeze agents in heating water) or areas of application other than those described must be approved by Viega.

Description

Flow-​optimised press connector system made of copper (99.9 % Cu-​DHP), gunmetal or silicon bronze for copper pipes. Press connectors for protecting the sealing element equipped with cylindrical pipe guide. The pressing force is located before and behind the sealing element seat. Suitable for concealed and pre-​wall installations of riser pipes and floor installations.


Marking:

Manufacturer, pipe dimension, batch, approval markings (DVGW), white dot on press end, white rectangle with inscription »FKM«.


Press connector with SC‑Contur:

Inadvertently unpressed connections are noticed immediately during a leakage test. Viega guarantees the detection of unpressed connections in the following pressure ranges:

  • Minimum water pressure: 0.1 MPa/ 1 bar/ 14.5 PSI.
  • Maximum water pressure: 0.65 MPa/ 6.5 bar/ 94.3 PSI.
  • Minimum air pressure: 22 hPa/ 22 mbar/ 0.3 PSI.
  • Maximum air pressure: 0.3 MPa/ 3 bar/ 43.5 PSI.


Sealing elements:

FKM (fluorocarbon rubber), matt black, pre-​assembled.

The use of Profipress S and Profipress connectors with FKM sealing elements in potable water and gas installations is not permitted.


Standards and approvals

Press connectors tested in accordance with DVGW Worksheet W 534 with DVGW test mark.

Press connectors suitable for copper pipes in accordance with DIN EN 1057 and DVGW Worksheet GW 392.
