Other

 

The smallest installation gap a connector can be fitted into is 65mm (21/2”) (for an 80mm (3”) long connector).

Note:  This may not be suitable for frequently changed connectors or those with more than a small amount of vibratory movement.

Distance between spigot & rings:
for 150mm (6”) long  = 75mm (3“)
for all other lengths = 100mm (4”)

Multiple rings evenly spaced at a min: 
100mm (4”) apart for CL > 850mm (331/2") (max 4 rings)
200mm (6") apart for CL ≥ 850mm (331/2") (max 10 rings)

Diameter (Ø) Measurements:
100mm (4”) Ø is measured to outside edge (OD) (to fit standard tube)
125mm (5”) Ø & over measured to inside edge (ID) (to fit standard pipe)
    Blanking caps and socks/bins available from 100mm (4") to 650mm (251/2") diameter Only Seeflex 040E, Seeflex 040AS, LM3, LM4 and Teflex are supplied with rings (Seeflex 020E on request only). Wall Thickness: 
100mm (4”) Ø are 1.5mm (1/64”) thick
150mm (6”) Ø & up are 2mm (5/64”) thick
    All Ø 800mm (311/2”) & over have finger-loops as standard to aid installation from one side Maximum number of rings: 10 Available in T304L SS and T316L SS, as well as C22 Hastelloy
      Tapered connectors cannot be made with rings Internal finish of the stainless steel is 0.8Ra micro-metres (32Ra micro-inches).
