The RIDGID® Press-In Branch Connector Tool Kit quickly makes ¾” branch connections on black steel pipe. It was introduced at AHR Expo last week. Significantly faster when compared to traditional welding, it is suitable for adding gauges or ¾” pipe in chilled water, compressed air, industrial gas, and low-pressure steam system applications.branch connector

Plumbers, pipe fabricators, and maintenance professionals working on 1½” to 6″black steel pipe will not only save time but also eliminate fire risk and avoid the additional expense of a fire safety watch.

The Connector Tool Kit includes an expander that fits all RIDGID standard press tools, including the RP 340, RP 330, RP 320, and CT-400, and works with Viega Press-In Branch Adapter Fittings. The kit also contains fitting positioning guides, an arbor shaft assembly, 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; while the vacuum adapters allow for connection to standard size vacuum hoses to help reduce steel chips falling into the pipe while making the branch. Both the positioning and drill guides ensure proper placement against the pipe.

“The RIDGID Press-In Branch Connector Tool Kit takes our standard press tools up a notch. This accessory kit not only reduces complexity, but more importantly, it speeds up the process when creating branches,” said Rob Trefz, RIDGID Director of Business Development and Marketing. “Particularly in industrial gas settings, when you can eliminate flames and a fire watch, it provides significant project cost savings.”

The Connector Tool Kit comes with the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.
