Viega Smartpress

Viega Limited

Viega Smartpress is an advanced press-connection piping system and multilayer composite pipe, available in sizes from 16 to 63mm diameter.

Stainless steel and gunmetal Smartpress connectors are suitable for a wide range of domestic and commercial applications including drinking water and heating installations. The range also includes manifold and radiator connection blocks.

One of the most common causes of failure in traditional press connections for MLCP is damage to the O-ring within the fitting. The innovative Smartpress system replaces the traditional O-ring construction with a robust and durable Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) support structure that also simplifies the installation process. There is no need to widen, deburr or calibrate the pipe, simply cut to the correct length, slide the fitting into place and press the connection. This provides up to a 30% time saving on-site when compared with alternative systems.

In addition, Smartpress has also been designed to help maintain water pressure within the system. Standard press connectors for multilayer pipes have right-angled flow deflectors and reduced internal cross sections due to the O-rings - both of which contribute to considerable pressure losses.

In contrast, the deflectors in the Viega Smartpress connectors feature flow-optimised geometries and the construction achieves minimal cross section reductions. Therefore the fittings have very low resistance coefficients (zeta values) and as such reduce pressure loss by up to 80% when compared with standard designs.
