This Viega system press tools have been specially developed for the processing of the Viega press systems and have been adjusted accordingly. When used for systems of other manufacturers Viega can not take any responsibility.Maintenance tips for Viega system press tools and press jaws:
Viega press tools achieve a pre-set pressure electro-hydraulically for the pressing procedure. The required operational safety requires a leak-free hydraulic system without oil loss, however natural wear and tear on such heavily used components is unavoidable. To ensure the continuous operating safety and reliability of the system press tools, the tools must be maintained regularly. This normally takes place by sending to the service points named by Viega or on location promotions through service points at the trade wholesaler.
It is recommended that the press jaw are inspected together with the system press tools. During the procedure, consumables are replaced, press jaw contours are revised and the press jaws are reset. Since 2012, Viega press jaws have been provided with maintenance stickers, which show the next recommended inspection date.
Example: next service 3rd quarter of 2015. New stickers after successful servicing by a Viega service point.Viega system press tools/servicing intervals:
