Small-Diameter Pipe Press System
Victualic’s Vic-Press is an industrial-grade, flame-free press system for quick and reliable joining of small-diameter piping systems. It is an ANSI Schedule 10S pipe-sized press-to-connect system designed for off-the-shelf ASTM A-312 Schedule 10S stainless-steel pipe. The pipe is cut to size, deburred, marked for visual verification and inserted into a lubricated coupling, fitting or valve. The PFT510 hand-held pressing tool presses the component onto the pipe end, providing a positive mechanical interlock and creating a rigid, permanent, leak-tight joint.
