The Buteline Plumbing System is designed to be used with complete confidence. You will get a simple, controlled, accurate joint every time.
Always use a Buteline pipe cutter to ensure a square, clean, burr-free cut. Cut the pipe on an indicator line.
To assist the pipe cutting process slightly twist the cutter as you begin to cut.View Buteline Pipe Cutters play_arrow
Once you have cut the pipe, simply insert the pipe into the Buteline fitting and push fully home to the shoulder of the fitting, with a slight twist to 'SureFit', up to the next indicator line of the same size.View Buteline Fittings play_arrow
Clamp the Buteline fitting, using ONLY the Buteline clamp tool.
Position the Buteline clamp tool squarely, approximately 2mm in from the end of the clamp ring.
Close handles to stops, hold in the tightly closed position for a moment to ensure that the flow of material is performed. Open and remove the tool.
* When burying Buteline fittings underground or when in contact with concrete (or when using for marine purposes), wrap the aluminium rings directly with PVC insulation tape or similar to prevent corrosion.View Buteline Clamp Tools play_arrow
Installing the Buteline Plumbing System is quick and sure and always provides a visual indicator of joint completion.
As you can see, the process of using the Buteline system is quick, simple and highly efficient.
Use the gauge provided with ProClamp Tools, QuickClamp Tools & 28mm Clamp Tools to check that the full clamp force has been achieved. It is important that the gauge passes over the clamp ring. If necessary, take corrective action by re-adjusting the tool and re-clamping.
Service your clamp tool by cleaning and oiling moving parts regularly (WD40 is an ideal cleaner/lubricant). Watch this demo on how to check your standard FR (non-adjustable) clamp tool.
