Grease the pipe ends, valve ends and rubber gasket lips with grease, graphite paste or similar grease. Slip the rubber gasket over the pipe end of each joint. Slide the gasket past the grooves. Position the grooved end valve between the pipe ends and slide the gaskets back into the central spanned position. All products have a flow direction arrow. Make sure that it is pointing in the direction of the flow. Apply grease on the outside of the gasket. Install housing clamps over the gasket – insert bolts and nuts. GROOVED END VALVE CONNECTIONS Tighten nuts evenly, using socket or other wrench. Tighten so that housing clamps come together evenly. The connection is complete when housing clamps meet metal to metal, further tightening of bolts is not necessary. Pre-assemble large diameter multi-segment housing clamps loosely and install them as half-housings. Take up evenly from top to bottom on alternate bolts.
