Do not use deformed pipes or pipes stained with foreign matter even if they are of the standard grade.
Cut the pipe square using a hand saw, a roller cutter or a high speed grinder.
Chamfering must be performed on every size of pipe, 1C on outside edge. Remove burr on inside edge if any. As a chamfering tool, a "Dendo-Reamer" is available.
Insert a pipe to an ABACUS fitting to the depth shown in the Table below. Apply marking or special seal to indicate level of insertion. "Marking-Reamer" ,a tool for chamfering and simultaneous marking of insertion depth is available.
