      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      ProPress G™ Connects Copper Fuel Gas Piping
      Quickly and Safely
      May 2005 – Viega North America and Ridge Tool Company now offer a copper piping
      system that is approved for natural gas, LP gas and fuel oil installations. The new
      ProPress G™ system is the latest addition to the popular ProPress® System used
      worldwide to join copper tubing for water applications.
      Like the ProPress System for copper water piping, ProPress G uses special 1/2" to 2" Viega
      copper fittings, along with Ridgid hydraulic pressing tools. The tools are fitted with
      interchangeable jaws that come in nine sizes to fit a wide range of piping applications.
      The ProPress System has been used in thousands of installations throughout North America
      since 1999 and since 1994 in Europe. The proven reliability of hundreds of millions of
      connections convinced major industrial and government approval bodies around the world to
      approve ProPress G for gas applications.

      Viega ProPress G fittings have the same quality and design as traditional Viega
      ProPress fittings, but they have a yellow sealing element composed of a high-
      performance hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) designed to last the life of
      the tubing. The fittings also feature a yellow marking to identify them as gas fittings

      not bad research, problem is wrong propress. the g is gas applications.

      same fittings, different o-rings.

      the introduction of propress was in the late 80's in germany. it hit north america in 2000.

      i will post a photo, since i can't scan it right now of my paperwork from viega.

            Dang OZONE,
            I'm sorry I missed this one last week.

            Can you imagine how the plumbers felt a few decades ago when A.B.S. came out to replace bell and spigot with lead and oakum.

            How horrified they must have been to see a no hub coupling.

            I absolutely feel for your frustration for the decline in the trades.

            Adam
