Ridgid: Branch Connector
Product: Press-In Branch Connector Tool Kit
Description: This product makes ¾-inch branch connections on black steel pipe. Replacing the need for welding, it is ideal for adding gauges or ¾-inch pipe in chilled water, compressed air, industrial gas, and low-pressure steam system applications. The kit includes an expander that fits all Ridgid standard press tools and works with Viega Press-In Branch Adapter Fittings. It also contains fitting positioning guides, an arbor shaft assembly, a drill guide, and vacuum adapters. The hole saw arbor attaches to standard drills, includes an M27 hole saw, and is designed to prevent the saw from penetrating both sides of the pipe. The vacuum adapters allow for connection to standard-size vacuum hoses to prevent steel chips from falling into the pipe while making the branch. Both the positioning and drill guides ensure proper placement against the pipe.
