Making a Perfect Connection

Cut -


Use only purpose designed pipe cutters and cut the pipe squarely. Ensure the pipe and fitting are both free from burrs and scratches and they are kept free from dirt
or debris. A pipe insert must be used to act as an internal support.

Lock - 


Ensure the pipe is pushed into the fitting fully past both the collet (gripper) and the ‘O’ ring, and is engaged properly. Twist the screw cap until the green coloured ring is no longer visible; this confirms a proper, secure fit and locks the pipe into position. It also increases pressure on
the ‘O’ ring seal around the pipe for greater security.

Check - 


Pull to check connection is secure. We recommend pressure testing the system before use. A pipe insert should be used to act as an internal support. Ensure there are no scratches, gouges or any other form of damage to the circumference of the pipe.

 

Separate - 


Before attempting to disconnect any fitting, make sure that the system is de-pressurised. Unlock the fitting by twisting until the green ring is fully visible. Press collets squarely against the face of the fitting. With collets depressed, pull on the pipe to remove it from the fitting.
