    Mega Press is approved for LP steam but then again so is Propress. The manufacturers have a way of getting anything approved.

    Most here don't like it for steam I think.

    I can certainly understand the relative ease of installing it compared to 3" threaded or welded.

    So I guess the choice is yours.

    Personally for a small job I wouldn't want to lug a 3" threader and everything else you need. If I had a way to measure it and have it cut at a supply house or at the shop that would be my preference. If not I would probably use Mega Press

    You need to install double elbow swings. I don’t think mega press will hold cyclical turning loads well. Also, you need to provide anker supports.
