Multi Fit Compression Waste Bend Conversion - 90 Degree x 40mm
|Guarantee||1 Year Manufacturer Performance Guarantee|
|Specification||BS EN 1455-1:2000|
Swivel bends are used to create a tight radius 90 degree change of direction in a waste pipe system. They are also often referred to as M and F bends or spigot bends. They have a long tail that is usually inserted into the socket of another fitting.
This fitting is available in 32mm and 40mm size options.
This compression waste system is manufactured in the UK to BS EN 1451. It is commonly used to connect waste pipes of differing materials or those made by different manufacturers.
When making a compression joint, cut the pipe square and remove any burrs. Unscrew the nut from the fitting and remove it along with the washer and the rubber seal. Place these three components over the end of the pipe – first the nut, then the washer followed by the seal. The dished side of the rubber seal should face away from the nut and towards the fitting. Push the pipe into the fitting as far as it will go, slide the seal and washer forward into position in the fitting and tighten the nut.
The joint can be taken apart again if required, but always check that the rubber seal has not been damaged in any way as this will cause the joint to leak.
Multifit Compression Waste System
Multifit compression waste fittings are ideal for use when connecting different waste pipe systems together. This could be for a variety of reasons – connecting on to a different manufacturers’ plastic system, connecting push fit to solvent weld waste or even connecting plastic to copper waste pipes.
In compression waste systems the joints are not permanent, they can be demounted and re-made if necessary.
The watertight seal in compression waste systems is created by a large, dished rubber seal and a nylon washer. When the nut on the fitting is tightened, the seal is compressed on to the pipe in much the same way as a copper olive works in plumbing fittings.
Our multifit compression fittings are made from white polypropylene. They are manufactured in the UK by FloPlast, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of all types of gutter, soil, waste and underground drainage products.
