OPERATOR SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR TOOLS NOTICE
• Although Victaulic pipe preparation tools are manufactured for safe, dependable operation, it is impossible to anticipate all combinations of circumstances that could result in an accident. The following instructions are recommended for safe operation of Victaulic pipe preparation tools. Always refer to the specific operating and maintenance instructions manual for complete safety guidelines.

1.

Read and understand the operating and maintenance instruction manual for the tool. read the supplied manual carefully before operating or performing maintenance on any tool. Become familiar with the tool’s features, operations, applications, and limitations. Be particularly aware of its specific hazards. store the operator’s manual in a readily available location. if you require additional copies of any literature, contact Victaulic. Secure the tool, power drive, and equipment. make sure that the tool and power drive are fastened securely to the floor.

2. 3.

Prevent accidental start-ups. place any power switches in the “off” position before plugging the tool into the electrical system. always use a safety foot switch for the power source. Ground the power source. make sure the power source is connected to an internally grounded electrical system.

4.

5. Operating environment. do not operate tools in damp locations. Wear hearing protection in noisy shop operations. ensure that the work area is well lit. 6. Wear proper clothing. do not wear unbuttoned jackets, loose sleeve cuffs, neckties, or anything else that can become tangled in moving parts. always wear safety glasses and foot protection. 7.
Stay alert. do not operate tools if you are drowsy from medication or fatigue. avoid horseplay around the equipment, and keep bystanders a safe distance away from the equipment. Inspect the equipment. Before starting the tool, check all moveable parts for any obstructions. make sure the guards and tool parts are installed and secured properly.

8. 9.

Keep work areas clean. keep the work area around the tool clear of obstructions that could limit the movement of the operator. clean up all oil and coolant spills. remove shavings from the tool to maintain proper operation.

10. Use pipe supports. for long sections of pipe and heavier work, use floor-mounted pipe stands. make sure that the work is secured properly in a pipe vise that is fastened securely to the floor. 11. Operate the tool on the switch side only. operate tools with a safety foot switch
located at an easily accessible area. never reach across moving parts or material being worked on. the safety foot switch must always be accessible to the operator.

12. Do not misuse tools. perform only the functions for which the tool was designed.
do not force the tool. do not operate the tool at speeds exceeding those specified in the operating and maintenance instructions manual.

13. Disconnect the power cord before servicing tool. only authorized personnel should attempt to service tools. always disconnect the power source before servicing or making any adjustments. 14. Always maintain tools. keep tools clean and cutting tools sharp for safe,
dependable operation. follow all lubricating instructions. report any unsafe conditions to authorized personnel for immediate correction.

GENERAL INFORMATION REV_D

PIPE PREPARATION
the grooved piping method is based upon the proper preparation of grooves to receive the housings’ keys. the groove serves as a recess in the pipe, which allows ample depth for secure engagement of the housings, yet ample wall thickness for full published Victaulic pressure ratings. Victaulic cut grooving tools are designed for use on standard, heavy-wall metallic; cast gray iron; ductile iron; or plastic pipe. roll grooving tools accommodate standard-wall pipe, light-wall pipe, and some X-strong pipe.

WARNING
• Before setting up and operating any Victaulic pipe preparation tools, read and understand the operating and maintenance instructions manual for the tool. • Learn the operation, applications, and potential hazards peculiar to the tool. Failure to follow these instructions could cause improper product installation, resulting in serious personal injury and/or property damage.

pipe must be prepared to Victaulic specifications outlined for each product style. preparation may vary according to pipe material, wall thickness, outside dimensions, and other factors. refer to all pipe preparation and groove specification sections of this manual for detailed information. Victaulic recommends square-cut pipe for use with grooved-end and plain-end pipe products. square-cut pipe must be used with Victaulic flushseal® and endseal® gaskets. Beveled-end pipe may be used, provided that the wall thickness is standard wall (ansi B36.10) or less and that the bevel meets ansi B16.25 (37 1/2°) or astm a-53 (30°). NOTE: roll grooving beveled-end pipe may result in unacceptable flare.

the “tool ratings” tables featured in this manual contain general information about tool capacities. certain tools are designed for high-use shop fabrication, while others are designed for field fabrication. for detailed information on tools, refer to Victaulic publication 24.01. for information about maintenance and operation of tools, refer to the applicable operating and maintenance instructions manual for the tool. NOTE: Victaulic cut grooving tools are designed for use on aWWa ductile iron pipe as well as ips steel and other ips materials.

PIPE LENGTHS SUITABLE FOR GROOVING
the table on the following pages identifies the minimum pipe lengths that can be grooved safely by using Victaulic grooving tools. in addition, this table identifies the maximum pipe lengths that can be grooved without the use of a pipe stand. pipe that exceeds the maximum lengths listed in this table requires the use of a pipe stand. always refer to the operating and maintenance manual for the applicable grooving tool for proper setup and grooving techniques.

NOTE: Always use a pipe stand when roll grooving pipe in these sizes. DO NOT roll groove pipe lengths shorter than 18 inches/457 mm in these sizes.

if pipe is required that is shorter than the minimum length listed in this table, shorten the next-to-last piece so that the last piece is as long (or longer) than the minimum length specified. EXAMPLE: a 20-foot, 4-inch/6.2-m length of 10-inch/273.0-mm diameter steel pipe is required to finish a section and only 20-foot/6.1-m lengths are available. instead of roll grooving a 20-foot/6.1-m length of steel pipe and a 4-inch/102-mm length of steel pipe, follow these steps: 1. refer to the table above, and note that for 10-inch/273.0-mm diameter steel pipe, the minimum length that should be roll grooved is 10 inches/255 mm. 2. roll groove a 19-foot, 6-inch/5.9-m length of pipe and a 10-inch/255-mm length of pipe.

WARNING

• Read and understand all instructions before attempting to install any Victaulic piping products. • Depressurize and drain the piping system before attempting to install, remove, or adjust any Victaulic piping products. • Wear safety glasses, hardhat, and foot protection. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious personal injury, improper product installation, and/or property damage.

NOTICE
• Style 72 Outlet Couplings are not recommended for vacuum services. In addition, Victaulic #60 End Caps must not be used with Style 72 Outlet Couplings in systems where vacuums may develop. • The Style 72 gasket contains a plated “neck ring” to aid sealing. DO NOT remove this ring, since leakage may result. • Style 72 Outlet Couplings are designed for use on straight runs of pipe. For installations onto fittings, contact Victaulic for information.

2. CHECK GASKET AND LUBRICATE: check the gasket to make sure it is suitable for the intended service. apply a thin coat of Victaulic lubricant or silicone lubricant to the gasket sealing lips and exterior.

CAUTION
• Always use a compatible lubricant to prevent the gasket from pinching/tearing during installation. Failure to follow this instruction could result in joint leakage.

1. CHECK PIPE ENDS: the outside surface of the pipe, between the groove and the pipe end, must be smooth and free from indentations, projections (including weld seams), and roll marks to ensure a leak-tight seal. all oil, grease, loose paint, dirt, and cutting particles must be removed.

3.

INSTALL GASKET: install the gasket onto the pipe end so that the lips on one side cover the area between the groove and the pipe end. NOTE: the pipe end should not contact the reinforcement ribs inside the gasket.
