Installation tips

Very important

The cartridges must be adjusted as much as possible.

When a hole has to be drilled for the housing of the cartridge, the following factors should be considered:

  • The inside of the drilled hole must be uniform, without scratches, nor different diameters however small they might be. Finishing off with a reamer is recommended
  • Heat rises
  • The distribution is greater at the ends and the heat is concentrated in the middle
  • Choosing cartridges from stock: between 8 to 11 wcm2
  • Ensure that the drilled hole has an outlet as to make removal easier
  • The connections must never be inside the drilled hole, as there is the risk of crossing and burning
  • The connections must be protected to prevent possible spilling of fluids and the entry of plastic, gases, etc..
  • incorporation of probes is recommended and must have a maximum distance of 15mm from the cartridge and be connected to a temperature regulator
  • There must be a minimum space of 3 diameters between the cartridges.

Extraction

Where possible, a hole must be drilled at one ending of the connection in order to extract the cartridge easily.
