Tracpipe Install Guide
Jointing flexible gas pipe with autoflare fittings
EachAutoFlare fitting uses a back nut and 2 split rings.
Simply slide the nut back over the cut pipe end, the two split rings will be aligned with the first corrugation of the pipe.
Slide the nut forward to trap the split rings.
Align the AutoFlare fitting with the back nut and hand tighten the threads then use an appropriate spanner size to tighten the fitting until it is tight.
Torque should be applied similar to that used when making up a flaredpipe joint.
