AIRnet Pipe Systems Guide

By referring to the following list of DO's and DON'Ts, your AIRnet Aluminum installation will go smoothly.  Due to its smart design, AIRnet can be installed faster than conventional systems. Enjoy installing the best, safest and most efficient piping system on the market!

Before you begin installing AIRnet piping, check the surface of the AIRnet pipes. There should be no abrasions, scratches, dents or any other damages visible on the pipe. You must also ensure that all necessary test controls and applicant rules for the specification installation are compiled with.

 

DO cut the pipe using a tubing cutter (pipe cutter).

DON'T use a hacksaw or cut-off saw - this can leave both sharp and uneven edges at the end of your pipes!

DO use a pipe deburrer or chamfer on all pipe ends ensuring a nice, smooth edge is achieved. This guarantees that the AIRnet pipes can be inserted smoothly into your connected fittings.

DO ensure the pipe is inserted fully into the body of the fittings. Use the pipe marker (-NEW-PN 2811 0029 80) to ensure a perfect fit. Use a water-based, non-silicone, gel slide fluid to facilitate assembly.

DO us a minimum of 2 pipe hangers for every 19-foot length of AIRnet pipe.

DO deburr all drilled holes to ensure the O-rings are not damaged when attaching AIRnet Quick Drops.

DON'T over tighten standard market pipe hangers. AIRnet pipes should be able to slide freely.

DON'T assemble fittings by sliding them piece by piece onto a pipe. PF Series fittings are pre-torqued for press fitting using water-based slide fluid and do not require loosening. Larger AIRnet fittings are made to insert with a simple loosening of the nut and full insertion of pipe, then, tightening with an AIRnet spanner wrench 1/4 turn.

DON'T drag the AIRnet pipes along the ground, deform or scratch the ends. Be cautious to not make direct contact with the soil.

DON'T use a wrench with grooved metal jaws on AIRnet fittings.

DO use the AIRnet wrenches to tighten fittings 1/4 turn as necessary.
