Cutting, bending, deburring multilayer pipes, are the three essential steps to master to ensure the durability and tightness of your installation.
Deburring to chamfer and recalibrate the tubes
Whichever fitting is used, deburring the freshly cut tube is a crucial step.
Be aware that when a leak occurs at a fitting, the cause is usually due to poor deburring.
The purpose of this operation is to chamfer the end of the tube to remove all residues (chips and other plastic dusts) that could affect the sealing of the fitting.
It also recalibrates the end of the tube that could crash slightly during cutting, and must find a perfect shape to ensure tightness.
This work is done with a sizer calibrator manual or mounted on a screwdriver.
When the tube has been cleaned, chamfered and calibrated, it fits perfectly into the fitting and thus guarantees the tightness of the network and its longevity.
To obtain a clean cut of the tube and its different layers (that is to say without crushing), use a special pliers.
Insert the tube into the chamfer calibrator.
Without forcing, pull out the plastic chips by operating the handle.
- Easier, mount the chamfer on a screwdriver, insert the tube and deburr at a fast speed without pressing too hard.
- When you force on the tube, it deforms and you have to start the operation again...
