Only Viega offers a line of press ball valves manufactured from material specifically designed for lead-free press systems. Made from Viega’s unique silicon-bronze alloy, engineered for press technology, these ball valves provide the same quality, reliability and performance as all Viega press fittings.
“We have expanded our Zero Lead valve offering to include press by female, press by hose and two additional lines of press by press end configurations,” said Monty Betts, product manager, Viega. “The new valves are forged, providing a stronger valve body and are constructed with double stem seals, which provide years of leak-free operation.”
The patented Viega Smart Connect feature helps installers easily identify unpressed fittings during pressure testing. Certified to ASME A112.4-2004 and NSF-61G in sizes from 1/2-2 inches, Viega ProPress Zero Lead ball valves are suitable for use with Viega ProPress fittings in copper for potable water applications.
The 316 stainless steel ball is a standard feature of the new Viega ProPress Zero Lead ball valves. Installers have a choice of stems in the press x press configuration ball valves, either Eco Brass or 316 stainless steel.
