This is a step-by-step guide for connecting BIC hubless pipe and fittings with BIC couplings. These suggestions are based upon accepted international industry standards and practices.
Important Points to Note
Ensure that the pipe ends have been cut straight and clean.
To prevent movement, pipes and fittings should be suitably braced by the use of blocks, rodding or other suitable methods wherever necessary.
Coupling Shield: SS304
Rubber Gasket: EPDM
The Hubless Couplings gaskets are made of EPDM rubber conforming to IS 15905:2011. Chemical characteristics of EPDM assure that the gasket will not decay or deteriorate from contact with effluents in the pipe, or chemicals in the soil or air around the pipe.
BIC SS304 Coupling with EPDM Gasket
- Loosen screws, separate SS304 shield and EPDM rubber gasket.
- Insert one spigot into the gasket and slip the shield over.
- Insert spigots into the gasket from both sides and ensure they sit evenly and firmly on the rim inside.
- Move the shield over the gasket and screw alternately to a tight fit.
