To control the inner duct-Ø please refer to the MRF measuring band instructions. In case of deviations beyond the tolerances, read the values on the scale and send us that information when placing your order.
Please advise upon ordering if the flanges are intended for fittings, as they are made smaller (diameter about 3 mm smaller / circumference about 9 mm shorter). The SR joining clip bridges
these small diameter differences.
Before inserting the flange into the duct apply an adequate sealant into the groove of the flange along its entire circumference.
Another possibility: After the installation of the flange apply mastic inside the duct between the flange and the duct wall (not always possible with smaller ducts). The different sealing solutions can often be combined for more security.
Place the flange in front of the duct end ( grip-pliers might be helpful) and drive the flange evenly home using a rubber hammer.
If the seam is too high (A) preventing the flange from being inserted all the way in, grind it down (B).
Alternative fastening methods: blind rivets or self-tapping screws.
Distance between the fixing points: between 50 and 100 mm.
