RPT Bell mouths

All Pipes Manufactured By Rpt Come In A Standard 6 Metre Length With A Bell mouth (socket) End For Simple Joining.

The Green Pipe from size 250mm dial to 450mm dial have a long tapered bell mouth and should be joined as follows:

  • Do not lubricate the O ring or spigot (non bell mouth) end of the pipe.
  • Place the O ring on the spigot end of the pipe as close to the edge but where it will sit without rolling, this is approx.25 to 35 mm from the end.
  • Insert spigot end (with O ring) of pipe into the bell mouth of the pipe you are joining, once the pipe and O ring have gone into the bell mouth the pipes can be pushed together (with a crowbar) until the Oring is tight. The further you pushthe tighter it will get until it can't be pushed further

The Green Pipe from size 525mm dia to 600mm dia have a shorter parallel type bell mouth and should be joined as follows:

  • Do not lubricate the O ring or spigot (non bell mouth) end of the pipe.
  • Place the O ring in the groove on the spigot end of the pipe.
  • Insert spigot end (with O ring) of pipe into the bell mouth of the pipe your are joining, once the pipe and Oring have gone into the bell mouth the pipes can be pushed together (with a crowbar) approx. 100mm or until home.

NB: Short lengths or pipes without bell mouths can be joined using our joining sleeves.
