No hot works, generators or pipe preparation required with Viega Geopress K

Launched into the Australian market in late 2019, Viega Geopress K satisfies every challenge posed by HDPE pipe underground installations by offering the reliability of press connection technology with internal sealing that's robust and extremely economical.

What makes this revolutionary system so unique is its tapping valve, which combines a tapping band and isolation valve within the one device.

Viega civil and utilities account manager Glenn Lewindon explains; "Live tapping of the HDPE main supply line takes only a few minutes. And, due to the integrated miller for PE pipes, live tapping can be carried out safely and efficiently without hot works and extra connections for a valve."

Market leading technology can be identified easily if it makes your work easier - just like Viega's tapping valves. With multiple outlet sizes, they provide the highest flexibility for the job and are the ideal connection to Geopress K. The fittings are also made from high-strength polymer and are available for drinking water (9690TW) and gas (9690G). The material ensures enormous stability and superior durability - features that are of utmost importance for underground installations.

With the tapping valve, the spot drilling of the HDPE main supply line takes only a few minutes. It is placed around the pipe like a bracket and tightly connected with the pipe using the press tool. To ensure no axial movement of the tapping valve, a sleeve is inserted into the drill hole during the tapping process.

"The base part of the saddle is also equipped with a series of heavy-duty springs to assist with pipe movement," Glenn explains. "This meaning that the main pipe to tapping valve connection seal is always under pressure and never relaxed!"

The tapping valve is integrated into the Viega product network. At the outlet of the tapping valve, the house service connection is connected by means of a connecting piece or connection elbow.

"These features make our connectors the perfect choice for harsh underground conditions," says Glenn. "The system also means no hot works, generators or pipe preparation is required. It offers the reliability of permanent-press connection technology with internal sealing that is robust and extremely economical."
