RIDGID’s Press-In branch connector tool kit quickly makes 3/4” branch connections on black steel pipe. Significantly faster when compared to traditional welding, it is ideal for adding gauges or 3/4” pipe in chilled water, compressed air, industrial gas and low-pressure steam system applications, the company notes. Plumbers, pipe fabricators and maintenance professionals working on 1 1/2” to 6” black steel pipe will not only save time but also eliminate fire risk and avoid the additional expense of a fire-safety watch, RIDGID points out. The kit includes an expander that fits all RIDGID standard press tools, including the RP 340, RP 330, RP 320 and Ct-400, and works with Viega Press-In branch adapter fittings. The kit also contains fitting positioning guides, an arbor shaft assembly, drill guide and vacuum adapters. Comes with a full RIDGID lifetime warranty.
