  1. Remove the protective plug or the adhesive tape from the valve before installing it, on to the pipeline.
  2. Don’t cut extra long thread on the pipe, as it may damage the valve interior.

  6. While installing the flanged valve, always use properly matching companion flanges with suitable flange packing.
  7. Always tighten the valve from the near end of the joint & do not attempt to force the joint, too tight, with an extra long handled wrench, which is likely to wrap / crack valve body & throw the valve seat out of alignment.
  8. Flush clean the pipeline, after installation of the valve, keeping the valve seat in fully open position, in order to flush away the foreign particles present in the pipeline, if any.
