Pipe cutting

Use special cutting equipment to cut pipe vertically according to the construction size. Then remove burrs on the cutting surface by utilizing special file or deburring device to make sure the pipe end and outer surface are smooth, clean and without oil stain.

Make a circle at the end of the pipe by using special scriber. Ensure O sealing ring is fixed in the correct position before inserting the pipe. And never use lubricant for installation. Pipe should be inserted into press fitting vertically, so as to avoid pricking the O sealing ring or falling it out.

The pipe should be inserted deep enough into the press fitting, so that to make it ready for press fit connector assembly.

Compression connection

Before press fit installation, Read Carefully the instruction of the compression tool before handling. Let the groove of the Special compression tool approach the convex part of the fitting closely. Make sure the plier is perpendicular to the pipe, then start compressing operation. When connecting inner and outer bread exchange joint, it should tighten the bread and then compress.

After press fit connector assembly, use special hexagonal gauge to test the compression connection. If the compression connection is not proper, use the press tool to compress again, and measure by hexagonal gauge again.

After the whole pipeline is installed, use water pressure test or gas pressure test to do the pressure test. The pressure of water pressure test should be 1.5 times larger than working pressure. And the pressure of gas pressure test should be 1.05 times larger than working pressure.
