Assembly Instructions for Standard Coned & Threaded Connections
1. Insert the gland onto the tubing. 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.
