INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION AND USE
1 - Verify that the hose length is suitable for connection between the valve and the appliance (hob, oven, kitchen, boiler, etc.) taking care not to exceed the maximum length allowed indicated on one of the fittings.
2 - Perform the assembly of the fitting to the valve, by taping the fitting thread with a P.T.F.E. tape or other material allowed by the current standards, screwing it in by hand without tightening (if it is a cock with female end) or, after fixing the enclosed gasket in the suitable seat of the female fitting, screw the revolving nut in by hand (if it is a gas cock with male end). Connect the other fitting to the appliance in the same way.
3 - Place the appliance definitely, checking that the hose does not bear torsional stress, then tightness both fittings with a hexagon wrench.
4 - Perform the tightness check of the fittings as follows: a) sprinkle the fittings with water and neutral soap; b) open the gas cock; c) if there are no bubbles the fittings are tight; if on the other hand there are bubbles verify that the gaskets are not damaged, tightness the fittings again, repeat the check in the same way until there are no bubbles.
If necessary the installer must effect earthing respecting current norms. This kit is suitable to connect appliances
with a nominal thermal capacity not exceeding 35 KW.
The hose installation must be performed only by qualified personnel in observance of all current norms and procedures. Especially do not install the flexible hose if there is any doubt about the compatibility of its connections to the gas appliance or the gas supplying system. Do not use adapters to make the connections compatible. Do not install the hose upstream the pressure reducing valve. Ensure that the flexible hose allows a suitable flow for the use which it is destined for.
Install the hose in conformity with the local and national standards and with the best customary practise.
Follow the instructions for installation given by both the hose manufacturer and the appliance manufacturer.
The connection between two flexible hoses is not allowed. Do not have the flexible hose undergo a bending radius inferior to the minimum allowed. The deterioration or destruction of any part of this assembly makes it necessary to change the whole kit; modifications made
to any piece of the assembly makes it no more in conformity with the European standard. It is appropriate to avoid any torsional stress to the flexible hose.
Do not place the hose in areas with temperatures exceeding 60°C. Assembly, disassembly or improper uses of the ENOLGAS flexible hose render the manufacturing company guarantee void. For assembly please refer only to qualified installers.
To clean the ENOLGAS flexible hose use only neutral and inert detergents and non abrasive tools. The ENOLGAS hose does not need maintenance.
