Polymer Fitting Installation 16mm to 63mm
Tools for Aircom Installation
For the correct installation of Aircom systems it is advisable to use the following tools.
Chamfering Cone – for the correct external and internal de-burring of the pipe
Specified Wrenches (Aluminum Body & Nut or Poly Body & Nut) – for Aircom wrench; allows efficient tightening.
Pipe Insertion Meter – allows marking the correct insertion of the pipes of any diameter
Drill Screwdriver – during bracketing and during the installation of the rapid diversions.
D.16-24mm Hole Saw – which, being crucial during the assembly of rapid diversions, allows drilling which will allow the passage of the ideal about of air required by the opening.
Screwdriver – during the bracketing for opening the pipe holder
Allen Wrench – for tightening rapid diversions
Pipe Wrench – blocks the body of the sleeve during installation
Gasket Lubricant – allows the correct lubrication of the gaskets allowing an easier insertion of the pipe hence avoiding the risk of cutting thereof. Without oils and mineral fats, it keeps the system clean
Marker – for mounting fittings and accessories
Tape Measure – for measuring heights, depths, inclinations, heights etc…
Pipe Cutter (Multi-layer or Aluminum) – for correct vertical cutting of the pipe without forming burs
Deburring Tool – for de-burring the hole created during
Nut Wrench for HR Polymer Fitting Installation
The Aircom wrench allows suitably tightening the nut wrench of the fittings without causing any damage, as it usually occurs with metal pipe wrenches. It is specifically designed for Aircom fittings made of plastic or aluminum material.
The Aircom fittings wrenches allow an accurate tightening of the fitting. The perfect fitting of the wrenches on the ferule shall allow tightening the component and activating the safety system.
Pipe Insertion Meter
The Aircom “spline gauge” is an accessory required for the execution of safe mounting operations. It allows marking on the pipe, as indicated in figures 1 and 2, the exact splining depth for all pipe measurements. Once inserted into the fitting, it will be easy to check the correct insertion depth of the pipe thus marked.
16-63mm Polymer Fitting Installation
The “QUICK LINE” Aircom system is extremely easy, quick and does not require the use of expensive and complex equipment. Just a few operations and the joint is ready for use.
ALWAYS CHECK FOR THE PRESENCE OF ALL COMPONENTS AND THE CORRECT INSERTION THERE OF
After checking the condition of the surface of the pipe (there should be no evident scratches, abrasions, dents that could lead to leakages), perform a precise and straight cut at the desired measurement.
The cut shall be cut closest to a right angle (90° with respect to the axis of the pipe) as possible.
De-bur the previously executed cut at the external surface of the pipe and eliminate possible chippings and/or cut residue along the edge of the internal diameter. Eliminate the cut residue, dust, and impurities possibly present in the pipe with the aim of avoiding future problems to the pneumatic apparatus is important
Untighten the ferule, by turning it by half rotation anticlockwise: the distance between the body and the ferule shall increase. Mark the splining depth indicated by the special spline gauge (if available) on the pipe. The mark thus obtained shall indicate the point of arrival in the internal abutment of the fitting. This will allow avoiding incomplete insertions.
Lubricate the end of the pipe and/or contact surface of the O-ring gasket using our AIRCOM lubricant so as to facilitate the operation.
Insert the pipe into the fitting and push up to the stop of the pipe at the abutment at the bottom of the splining.
AVOID THE USE OF SLIDING AGENTS, OILS, GREASES WHOSE COMPATIBILITY YOU ARE NOT SURE OF.
IF NOT SURE, PLEASE CONTACT US!
Tightening shall be carried out by hand tightening up to the stop point and subsequently 180°, using a sector
A correct tightening of the fitting shall position the nut wrench halfway the tightening marking point.
Joints executed using the “QUICK LINE” AIRCOM systems do not require waiting times after completion; pressurisation is instantaneous.
