Cooney Valentine's RIDGID Press Rings

SING IT: “Cause if you like it, then you shoulda put a ring on it”

How about a RIDGID Press Ring to make the pipe fitter’s in your life job easier?

With the press of the trigger, this new head shears up to 12 gauge steel struts in five seconds or less, without chips and fewer sparks. Due to its compact design and light weight, it is extremely portable, making it easy to transport to, from, and around jobsites.

Viega, the first manufacturer to bring press joining technology to North America and the first to offer a proven method to verify secure connections. Their ProPress and MegaPress lines make consistent, reliable, permanent connections in 7 seconds or less. Since no flames are required, there’s no need for burn permits or fire watches, and repairs can even be made to ‘wet’ pipelines under flow conditions. Setup time is also reduced since no oily threading machines or welding equipment is needed. Talk about time saving!

RIDGID provides the tools necessary to make ProPress and MegaPress connections. At 30% smaller and 17% lighter than its predecessor, the RP 340 Press Tool is the latest standard sized, pistol-grip tool offering from RIDGID. The RIDGID RP 340 is the only standard sized tool that offers a full line of jaws and rings compatible with: ½ - 4” ProPress for Copper and Stainless Steel, as well as PureFlow for PEX and MegaPress Steel.

The ProPress rings allow for access in tight spaces, and the swivel actuator allows the press tool to be placed +/- 90 deg to the tube being pressed. 

RIDGID makes ProPress XL-C Rings for use with ProPress XL-C Fittings. ProPress XL-C Rings are designed to mechanically press ProPress XL-C fittings onto 2-1 /2", 3" and 4" tubing:

RIDIGD 20543: 2-1/2 in ProPress Ring
RIDIGD 20548: 3 in ProPress Ring
RIDIGD 20553: 4 in ProPress Ring

An individual ring is required for each tubing size. ProPress XL-C Rings are actuated with V2 actuators and Standard Series Press Tools such as the CT-400, 320-E, RP 330 or RP 340.

ProPress XL-C Rings cannot be used with the Compact Series Press Tools. The ProPress XL-C rings must be used perpendicular to the fitting and tube 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.
