MegaPress Press-​In Branch Connector

General

MegaPress Press-​In Branch Connector

The MegaPress Press-​In Branch Connector is an innovative way to create branches from main runs or install instrumentation onto existing piping. The branch connector installs onto carbon steel pipe in sizes 1½" through 4", as well as 6", and has a ¾" FPT outlet. As with other MegaPress products, it can be installed on partially drained systems, further reducing downtime during installation.
The MegaPress Press-​In Branch Connector is approved for use in hydronic heating, cooling water applications, compressed gases and many more, thanks to a variety of sealing elements. Not approved for use with potable water.
