Description and Specifications
RIDGID Press Tool Attachments for Mega - Press with the appropriate RIDGID Press Tool, are designed to mechanically press MegaPress fittings onto pipe to create a permanent water or gas tight seal. MegaPress. When the switch on the press tool is depressed, a motor powers a hydraulic pump which forces fluid into the press tool cylinder. This moves the tool rollers forward into contact with the attachment and applies thousands of pounds of force to the specially designed fitting. The entire pressing cycle takes between 4 and 8 seconds starting from when the switch is pressed. Once the pressing tool starts to deform the fitting, the tool will automatically continue the press until complete.
Standard Series MegaPress Jaw Sets
(1/2" to 1")
Standard Series MegaPress Jaw Sets are designed to mechanically press MegaPress and MegaPressG fittings onto 1/2", 3/4" and 1" nominal pipe size (NPS) steel pipe. An individual jaw set is required for each pipe size. Standard Series Jaw sets are designed to be used with RIDGID Standard Series Press Tools such as the CT-400, 320-E, RP 330 and RP 340. Standard Series Jaw Sets cannot be used with RIDGID Compact Series press tools such as the 100-B, RP 210-B or RP 200-B. Jaw sets and press tools must be used perpendicular to the fitting/pipe being pressed.
MegaPress Rings (1-1/4" to 2")
MegaPress Rings are designed to mechanically press MegaPress and MegaPressG fittings onto 11/4", 11/2" and 2" pipe. An individual ring is required for each pipe size. 1-1/4" to 2" rings can only be actuated with the V2 actuator and Standard Series Press Tools. 1-1/4" to 2"
MegaPress rings cannot be actuated with Compact Series Press Tools. The MegaPress rings must be used perpendicular to the fitting and pipe being pressed but the ball pocket/tip feature on the rings and actuators allows the actuator and press tool to swivel up to 90 degrees in each direction. This allows the rings and actuators to be used in some applications where jaw sets and pressing tool might not fit. The MegaPress rings are marked to show the correct actuator for use with that ring.
