Quick Lock Tubing Installation Guide

Champion offers the easiest and fastest installation available. There is no welding, gluing or threading, and very little skill is needed for a professional installation. With the purchase of nylon clips or wire hangers, an installation crew can clip tubing securely to a wall or hang from the ceiling and around beams. No special tools are required and both pieces are easily adjustable for a quick and efficient install.

1. Remove burrs from the outside diameter of the tube. Clean and remove any shavings.


2. Add oil on tube before inserting into the fitting.

3. Fittings D14, D20, D25, D32 and D40mm are supplied fully assembled. Insert the tube into the fitting. To make insertion easier, rotate the tube on itself while making the connection. Be sure tubing is securely and fully inserted into the fitting.


4. Use the below table to properly tighten the fittings:

5. Only for tube dimensions D50 and D63mm. To facilitate installation, fittings are supplied with unscrewed nuts. Once the tab is inserted into the fitting, tighten the nuts to the torque specified above:

6. Outlet/Reducing Tee Fitting This fitting is a valid alternative to the traditional swan neck, and proves itself as a fast and low-cost solution. The efficient internal system allows air to reach the pointof-use and drain toward the most convenient low point of the system, so that no moisture stays within the main circuit. This fitting is also an alternative to a traditional goose neck (up and over) take-off point. It prevents water from dropping out of the main piping loop into the drop line. All systems should be installed with a slight slope to allow moisture to collect at one point in the system. This point should be fitted with a drop line and terminated with a condensate drain.


CAUTION! Do not loosen the compression nuts prior to pipe installation. The fitting compression nuts are torqued at the factory. To install the pipe, push and rotate the pipe into the fitting until fully seated. Verify the compression nuts are tightened to the proper torque displayed in the above tables.

PIPE REMOVAL: Loosen the fitting compression nut 1 to 1.5 turns, push the pipe into the fitting and then pull out.
