Gas connection

Gas connection must be carried out according to the
rules in force. The manufacturing company release the
unit, once tested, adjusted for the kind of gas stated
on the rating plate located on the back of the range,
next to connection pipe. Be sure that you are going to
connect the unit to the same kind of gas written on the
rating plate. For best efficiency and lowest
consumption, be sure that manifold gas pressure
respects the values in the table of burners
characteristics.
Connection using a rigid pipe or
a flexible metal pipe
To ensure higher safety, it is recommended to carry out
the connection to the gas system using rigid pipes (ex.
copper) or using flexible stainless steel pipes, to avoid
any stress to the unit. Gas feeding pipe fitting is Gc 1/
2. For this type of installation, connection to the gas
supply should be carried out using only and exclusively
flexible metallic tubes in conformity with rules in force.
Connection using flexible non
metal pipes
When the connection can be easily inspected in its full
extent, there is the chance to use a flexible pipe
according to the rules in force. The flexible pipe must
be tightly fixed using clamps according to the rules in
force.
The flexible pipe should be made ready for use in such
a way that:
-
nowhere it can reach overtemperature, other than
room temperature, higher than 30°C; if the flexible
pipe, to reach the cock, must run behind the range,
it must be installed as shown in the diagram;
-
it is no longer than 1500 mm;
-
it shows no throttles;
-
it is not subject to traction or torsion;
-
it doesn't get in touch with cutting edges or corners;
-
it can be easily inspected in order to check its
condition.
The control of preservation of the flexible pipe consists
in checking that:
-
it doesn't show cracks, cuts, marks of burnings both
on the end parts and on its full extent;
-
the material is not hardened, but shows its normal
elasticity;
-
the fastening clamps are not rusted;
-
expiry term is not due.
If one or more abnormalities are seen, do not repair the
pipe, but replace it.
IMPORTANT
Once installation is complete, check the perfect
seal of every pipe fitting, using a soapy solution,
never a flame.
