Viega Brings Marine Products in Metric Sizes to North American Market

BROOMFIELD, CO. Oct 15, 2020

Viega LLC is introducing three marine pipe pressing systems in metric sizes to the North American market.

Now carrying over 400 marine metric products in North America, Viega will make construction, maintenance and repairs easier for customers working on vessels which use metric piping. These Viega metric products have proven themselves in Europe and other markets for decades and carry certifications from the U.S. Coast Guard, American Bureau of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas/Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyd’s Register, Bureau Veritas and RINA.

“Ships have tight windows in port or dry dock for maintenance to be done and need product in hand to get underway. The best way for us to meet our customers’ needs is to have our most requested metric products in stock and ready when needed,” said William Dutcher, Product Manager, Metals IPS. “Now our North American marine customers can enjoy the efficiency, safety and reliability of Viega pipe fitting systems, regardless of which sizing they work with.”

The product lines being introduced are:

Raxofix – This is an innovative, form-stable PEX piping system that optimizes flow rates, allowing for reduction of pipe sizes and topside weight. Raxofix is available in sizes from 16mm to 63mm. Most commonly used for potable water.

Sanpress INOX – These 316 stainless steel system valves and fittings come in metric sizes from 15mm to 54mm and are available with EPDM or FKM sealing elements. Comparable to Viega’s ProPress Stainless 316.

Profipress – These copper and bronze fittings are available in metric sizes from 15mm to 54mm and offer the option of EPDM or FKM sealing elements. Comparable to Viega’s ProPress.

Viega will continue to carry:

SeaPress – These 90/10 copper nickel fittings are for seawater applications, including fire main and cooling systems. They’re available in sizes from 15mm to 108mm with metric and standard adapters and offer the option of EPDM, HNBR and FKM sealing elements.

Viega’s press systems are faster and safer than brazing or welding while eliminating the need for a fire watch. Connections can be completed in tight spaces, under the most difficult situations and repairs and modifications can be carried out while a vessel is underway.
