MAINTENANCE OF MANIFOLD ASSEMBLY - (Cont)
Temporarily insert pipe (3, Figure 5-3) into tee (2). Insert flange (4) over pipe (3).
Align top of tee (2) vertically between two holes in the top of flange (4).
Align top two holes of both flanges (4) and repeat steps 1 and 2.
Scratch alignment marks on tee (2), pipe (3), and flange (4) of both assemblies.
Death or severe injury can occur from inhaling fumes caused by inadequate ventilation while using
cleaner/primer and adhesive.
Disassemble parts, apply cleaner/primer to pipe fittings and allow to dry.
Reassemble parts with adhesive individually while checking alignment marks. Refer to steps 1 through 3.
Make any alignment corrections rapidly - adhesive is fast drying.
For inlet half of manifold assembly apply cleaner/primer to slip by spur adapter (5) and inside top of tee (2). Allow
Apply adhesive to slip by spur adapter (5) and insert into top of tee (2).
For outlet half of manifold assembly apply cleaner/primer to nipple (6) and inside top of tee (2). Allow to dry.
Apply adhesive to nipple (6) and insert nipple (6) through ball valve collar (7) and install into top of tee (2).
Apply anti-seize tape to threads of nipple (12, Figure 5-2) and install quick connect coupling (11).
Apply anti-seize tape to threads of nipple (10) and install quick connect coupling (9).
Position orifice plate (7) and gaskets (6) between flanges (5).
Position flange (5) next to bracket (8). Secure flanges with bolts (4), flat washers (3), lockwashers (2), and hex
Install manifold assembly (refer to para. 4.18b).
