All products are tested hydrostatically at 1.5 times working pressure. Hose units are tested at 0.2- and 6-bar with air, while tank units and PTCs undergo 0.2-, 2.5- and 25-bar air tests. These procedures are carried out in compliance with BS EN 14432.
This will depend on a case-by-case basis, as small quantities will differ in lead time compared to larger orders.
The NGX break-away should always be attached to the hose side, while ensuring it’s not fitted directly behind the unit as this can lead to health and safety issues in the event of a breakage. There should be at least a length of pipe or hose between the break-away and the unit to maintain a safe area of operation.
For general chemical applications, TODO recommends a six-monthly service interval with either a seal kit or a repair kit depending on the condition of the hose and tank units in question. Seal kits provide all the O-rings necessary to carry out servicing and put the unit back into working order. However, if there is visible evidence of degraded parts then a repair kit is recommended.
Chemical applications must be treated with a high degree of caution. For more aggressive chemicals, TODO recommends shorter servicing intervals. From here, performance can be monitored and service time gradually adjusted.
TODO can provide step files. The engineering team will need to be informed of the desired part to accommodate this request.
The smallest size available is 1”, though TODO does offer smaller connection sizes including 0.5” threaded or flanged connections. Spatial requirements make it very complex to make couplings any smaller. It’s for this reason that TODO offers smaller connection sizes as opposed to shortening the product itself.
TODO performs 3.1 material search to offer full traceability, along with testing certification per order upon request.
