How To Assemble PowerFlex™ Hose To PowerFlex™ Hose End
STEP ONE: Wrap the hose tightly with electrical tape. Hold the hose firmly in a vise without crushing and cut through the tape. Make sure you make a straight cut. Remove the tape slowly and deburr the teflon edges. Install the socket on the hose and slide it back out of the way.
STEP TWO: Insert the nipple portion of the PowerFlex hose end in a vise. Slip the hose over the nipple in a twisting motion to size the I.D. of the teflon. Separate the wire braid from the O.D. of the teflon tube with a small screwdriver. Be careful not to crush the teflon.
STEP THREE: Push the olive sleeve around the teflon and between the braid. This can be done by pushing the olive sleeve against the side of your work- bench or vise. Be sure the teflon liner is square to the bottom of the olive. With the nipple in the vise, lube the threads and the nipple portion of the hose end sparingly. Insert the hose over the nipple making sure the olive does not pop off the teflon tube.
STEP FOUR: Start the socket onto the nipple by hand. Tighten with a wrench until the gap between the nipple and the socket is no more than 1/16”. Clean the hose assembly and pressure test before using.
