How to Guide – 400/410 Series Hose

2) Hold socket in vise and insert hose by pushing and twisting to the depth of the mark indicated on the outside of the socket – just behind the threads. Mark or tape the hose behind the socket to indicate any backing out on assembly.

 

3) Lightly lubricate the fitting threads and the inside of the hose with clean lubricating oil. Hold the fitting horizontally in a vise and thread the hose and socket on by hand as far as possible - taking care not to cross the threads.

 

4) Complete the assembly using the correct size spanner and tighten until there is a maximum gap between socket and fitting of 1-2mm. Check the mark behind socket for backing out of the hose, none should be evident.

 

5) Pressure test the assembly to 2 x maximum working pressure, clean, inspect and plug ends for storage.

4. Lightly lubricate the fitting threads with clean lubricating oil. Hold the fitting horizontally in a vise and thread the hose and socket on by hand as far as possible - taking care not to cross the threads.

 

5. Complete the assembly using the correct size spanner and tighten until there is a maximum gap between socket and fitting of 1mm.

 

6. Under no circumstances undo the fitting to adjust the alignment.

7. Pressure test the assembly to 2 x maximum working pressure, clean, inspect and plug ends for storage.
