Assembling the SRWD..VI soft seal

  • The SRWD..VI soft seal cannot be assembled unless the cutting ring has already been assembled correctly.
  • Disassemble the pipe and check that a clearly visible shoulder of cut material is present in front of the first (front) cutting edge.
  • Slide the SRWD..VI soft seal over the cutting ring.
  • Thread the union nut onto the screw fitting until the force required to turn it* increases noticeably.
Abb: SRWD..VI
  • Fully assembled cutting ring: Turn the union nut of the threaded connection or pipe about 30° to 60° further with the spanner (tighten/tighten fully).
  • Pre-assembled cutting ring: Turn the union nut of the threaded connection or pipe ¼ turn further with the spanner on pre-assembled cutting rings.

We recommend replacing the SRWD..VI soft seal whenever the connection is disassembled and re-assembled.

Any other tightening path on the cutting rings and pipe fittings reduces the pressure load capacity and service life of the connections and threaded connections. As a result, the cutting ring will slip off and leaks will occur!
