Faratec Pipe, Glued Coupling Installation Procedure

Introduction:
Glued coupling joints designed and approved in FARATEC technology centre are made by glass reinforced plastic (GRP) pipes and produced in FARASSAN manufactory according to continues winding method. This kind of joints designed for Biaxial and above ground applications and recommended for more than 300mm of diameter sizes. A glued coupling is longer than a REKA coupling and has four grooves which grinded for gaskets seats and two grinded surfaces between of this grooves that after installation jointed to the pipe by the glue.

Before transporting of this pipes one coupling installed on a side of each pipe in the factory, same as uniaxial pipes and REKA couplings, but usually glue don’t injected and its need to fill by adhesive at the installation site.

now insert output tube into the undermost hole and hold it by hand. A.4: Put the pipes on some same thickness woods and check that enough space exists for working (at least 10cm) under the coupling then twist the pipe to one of coupling’s holes move to top of coupling. A. Recommended use pneumatic tube and connections for outline of vessel as tube seats into the coupling holes and no leakage exist. Put the pitcher of prepared glue into the “injection vessel” and tide the door of vessel. Glued Coupling Installation Procedure Page 3 of 7 Version 1 rev 0. as output air flow be adjustable and also dehydrated and then connect them to the “injection vessel” input. Recommended that before installation of pipes. Use a suitcase flexible tube to can connect the outline of vessel to the coupling holes simply.2: Connect an “air filter” and “regulator” to the outline of “air compressor”. As told if installed side of coupling does not fill by adhesive suggested that inject the glue according to procedure A and if it has done in the factory you can install the other side according to procedure B. This hole will use for vent of air.com . check that air don’t issues with glue. A.5: Open compressor’s valve and let to compressed air to push the glue from “injection vessel” to out of tube. Faratec Pipe. Adjust air flow by regulator to take to good rate of glue.3: Prepare the glue according to the adhesive procedure and adjust its gel time from 45 to 60 minutes. A-Adhesive injection into the coupling A.1: For glue injecting surfaces of ends of pipe and between of grooves at inside of coupling should be grinded and cleaned. Before than anything infuse acetone into the holes of installed side of coupling to clean the surfaces.pdffactory. A. June 2010 PDF created with pdfFactory Pro trial version www. adhesive injected into the installed side of coupling.-Preparation of installation “Glued coupling” has no stopper in middle so it needed to be immovable on the pipe by something like clamp that tide on the pipe right by the coupling.

com . Faratec Pipe. Injection of glue now is completely done. Glued Coupling Installation Procedure Page 4 of 7 Version 1 rev 0.A.6: Glue is filling free space of between of gaskets and is coming up inside of coupling.7: Close the valve and remove the tube from the coupling and seal it by pin. When see glue issues from last hole (the top hole) wait to maker sure all of air comes out and then seal the hole. Check the other holes and wait. When glue comes out from each ones of holes insert a pin and hit it by hummer to seals the leakage.pdffactory. Repeat this way for other holes. A.

NOTE4: Hydrostatic pressure can applied after than at least 12 hours from injecting. Stop jacking when pipes tangent together. By keeping of jacking pipe will arrived to coupling and pipe will insert to the coupling.5 to A. Jacking will damage pipes. Glued Coupling Installation Procedure Page 7 of 7 Version 1 rev 0. NOTE3: Suggested that draw a line around the pipe which has half of coupling length distance from end of pipe.7: Bring some belts and tide them on the pipes and use one or two “come along jack” to connect the belts and pull them together. Never use another lubricant for installation. B. NOTE1: Glue in this type of joints use as lubricant as told.8: Inject the prepared glue into the second side of coupling immediately.6: Prepare adhesive according to A.
