2. DEBURRING:

All pipe cuts must be carefully deburred, both inside and outside, using a manual or electric deburring tool. Any cutting residue (swarf) must be removed to preclude damage to the O-ring when the pipe is inserted into the fitting, avoiding possible leaks.

4. ASSEMBLE FITTING ON TUBE

Before assembling the fittings, the positioning of the O-rings must be checked and, if necessary, lubricate O-ring with water or talc to ease the insertion of the pipe. Never use oils, greases, glues or other similar substances. The pipe is inserted in the fitting with a slight rotating motion until it hits the stop.
