Assembly of Standard Coned & Threaded Connections
Assembly Instructions for Standard Coned & Threaded Connections
1. Insert the gland onto the tuwwbing. Thread the left handed collar onto the tube until one or two threads are exposed from the tapered coned end.
2. Apply a compatible lubricant to the gland threads and the back side of the collar where it comes in contact with the gland. Also lubricate the tapered cone portion of the tube with a system compatible lubricant. This will help protect the sealing surfaces from galling during the assembly process.
3. Insert the tubing into the connection and tighten the assembly hand tight. Then use a torque wrench to tighten the connection to the appropriate value in the table below. It is good practice to use an additional wrench to prevent the opposite connection from turning.
