Installation and System Testing
Products should be kept clean and undamaged before use.
All installations must be pressure tested after installation to ensure system
integrity before handing over to the final user. See also “Making a connection”.
Cleaners and Sanitising of Acetal Fittings.
The external surfaces of Apex Filtamate products must not come into contact
with oxidising or acidic cleaners and sanitising agents, for example (but not
limited to) those below pH 4, high in sodium hypochlorite level (bleach) or
containing hydrogen peroxide. Our plastic material suppliers recommend
ECOLAB Oasis 133 as a suitable cleaner for the external surfaces of acetal
products manufactured by Apex Filtamate.
Several different methods exist for sanitising the internal surfaces of fluid
systems, including sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide
or ozone. It is entirely the responsibility of the end user to determine if the
chosen method is suitable for use with John Guest products over the planned
working life of the system. However, to avoid unnecessary early failure, John
Guest requires that the disinfection solution must be immediately flushed outat all draw off points with fresh, wholesome water at the end of the disinfectionperiod. The solution must not be left in the system. Disinfection solutionsmust only come into contact with the internal (fluid carrying) surfaces of thesystem. If any other surfaces of a fitting come into contact with disinfectionsolution, the whole fitting must be replaced immediately.Details of whichproducts are made from Acetal are shown in our catalogues but generally Polypropylene fittings offer greater resistance
to aggressive chemicals than Acetal fittings. Polypropylene does not have the
same mechanical properties as Acetal.
Apex Filtamate Valves has a policy of continuous research and development and reserves the right to amend without notice the specification and design of all products. Product descriptions and sizes are approximate and Apex Filtamate reserves the right to supply products which may have minor and negligible deviations from that printed in catalogues etc. (or from products previously supplied).
Whilst we give a warranty against defects in manufacture or materials, it is
the responsibility of the specifier to ensure that fittings and related products
are suitable for their application. The installation must be carried out correctlyin accordance with our recommendations, complying with recognised codesof practice and relevant national standards, and be properly maintained.

Apex Filtamate products are not designed to be used under side load as this
may adversely affect their ability to function long-term. Always ensure tubes
have good alignment with the fitting. They must also not be subjected to any
form of impact or other damage, such as being hit or dropped, even
accidently. If fittings have damaged or suffered an impact, they should be
replaced immediately. Apex Filtamate warranty does not cover loss caused by any form of damage
