Assembly Instructions

  1. Cut the hose to the required length, preferably using a hose cut off machine with a hardened steel blade, allowing for the length of the end fitting.
  2. Assemble the correct ferrules (see list) on to the hose ends.
  3. Open the hose bore, by screwing in then pulling out the correct Visiflon Opening Tool (Manual or Motorised). For hydraulic fittings, use the basic tool. For PTFE tail fittings, add the correct collar to the tool.
  4. Insert the end fitting, then push the ferrule fully over the hose up to the end fitting.
  5. Crimp the ferrule to the correct diameter as given in Aflex Document AS-42 for Hydraulic Inserts, or AS-VI-01 for PTFE Tail Inserts. These are available on an I-Bay system - apply to Aflex Hose for access codes. Check using a Vernier or Micrometer.
  6. Pressure test the assembly with air or water to 2.0 x listed Maximum Working Pressure before use in application.
