A package consisting of EPDM seals and aramid fibers gaskets, approved by DIN-DVGW in accordance with DIN 3535, part 6 FA, guarantees an excellent seal to the outside between the spindle and the gland; instead, the seal between the spindle group and the body, in direct contact with the fluid, is ensured by an HNBR.
Read carefully the installation instructions included in the box. For the CSV..SHP types is necessary to disassemble the valve, acting on the indicated hexagon, before brazing the body to the system. The brazing shall be done with a low melting point alloy. During this process do not point the flame directly towards the body in order to prevent leaving combustion residues on the sealing seats.
