1/2"(16.5mm) – 1-1/2"(40mm) Installation Instructions

< Back to Previous Page

Installation Guidelines
1. Transair pipe and hoses: Transair pipe should be protected from mechanical impact, particularly if exposed to collision with fork-lift trucks or when sited in an environment with moving overhead loads. Similarly, rotation of the pipe and pipe supports should be avoided. Transair pipe must not be welded.

2. Expansion and contraction: Expansion and contraction of the system should be calculated prior to installation. The system designer and installer should calculate the elongation or retraction of each Transair line according to the recommendations in this installation guide.

3. Situation to avoid: Installation within a solid mass (concrete, foam, etc.), the hanging of any external equipment to Transair pipe, the use of Transair for grounding or as a support for electrical equipment, and exposure to chemicals that are incompatible.

4. When assembling Transair connectors, do not interchange the nuts with different Transair bodies due to our calibration process.

1. Cutting the pipe:
■ place the pipe in the pipe cutter
■ position the blade onto the pipe
■ rotate the pipe cutter around the pipe while gently tightening the wheel.
2. Carefully chamfer the outer edges.
3. Deburr the inner end of the pipe.
4. Trace the connection indicator using the marking tool.

To connect, simply insert the pipe into the connector up to the connection mark.

Pre-assembled Tightening Indicators for 1/2"(16.5mm), 1"(25mm) and 1 1/2"(40mm) Connectors

There are important visual markings on the bodies and nuts of Transair® 1/2", 1" and 1 1/2" connectors. These are represented by solid and empty arrows and indicate the optimum torque. When assembling Transair® connectors, the nuts are tightened to a predefined torque on the body of the connector. This torque guarantees the seal and safety of each connection.

Before using 1/2"(16.5mm), 1"(25mm) or 1 1/2"(40mm) connectors, ensure that the arrow marks are correctly aligned with each other.

To disconnect, unscrew the nut by one half turn and remove the pipe.

Lateral Dismantling
Loosen the nuts located on the side of the pipe to be removed and slide them along the pipe. Then remove the pipe.
