FAQ we receive at Infinity Pipework
We regularly receive questions from our customers or those new to the product and our company. We are always delighted to give feedback to your queries and welcome you to get in touch with us at any time.
The following FAQ area is a selection of the questions we have received over recent months and years. We work to populate and update this area regularly as and when new queries arise but we always welcome you to get in touch directly to discuss a particular topic.
1. Can I purchase the whole compressed air system from Infinity?
2. Can I over tighten the fitting?
Yes it is possible, but very unusual. Here is what we suggest: Once the tube is in the fitting and you are happy the connection is good, tighten to a 'good' tightness. To gauge the tightness, we would describe this as being a 90 degree turn away from being tight.
As you tighten the fittings, the stainless steel grab ring is cutting into the pipe and is secure. There is a torque figure for the 63mm and 110mm bolts (110m bolt must be tightened transversely).
3. Do I need to undo the fitting nut fully to slide tube into the fitting?No, Infinity is a simple push fit system. Once you have decided on a fitting to use, simply undo through 360 degrees to slacken off. Slide the de-burred pipework into the fitting and tighten the nut.
4. Does the Infinity system need condensate drain points?Yes, it is a good practice to install these in all compressed air systems. Please see part number 90260 for more details.
5. Do I need special tools to install the Infinity Pipework system?
Two simple tools are required for the actual pipework; a tube cutter and a de-burrer. Both the inside and outside edges of the tube need de-burring after cutting. This is to avoid damage to the fitting seals.
6. How do we stop water from entering our air tools?
Firstly, if this is a really bad problem, you may need to consider a refrigerant air dryer. However, as our ring main solution is unique, instead of a traditional swan neck, you can use our Zero Condensate Tee.
This will give you the benefit of the swan neck but its patented design will cost you less as you only need one fitting to stop condensate ingress.
