Cannot be displaced during transportation & installation
Greater joint reliability due to joint tolerance reduction
Traditional Rieber style seal for IPS pipes
The Forsheda 560 Rieber IPS seal is a composite compression seal consisting of:
The seal is integrated into the socket. During pipe manufacture ensuring it is always in the correct position in the joint.
The seal is placed onto the socket forming tool and used to shape its own seal groove reducing irregularities and tolerances in the socket.
The seal is equally effective under both positive and negative pipe pressure (vacuum).
Increased installation reliability and reduces risk of accidental seal displacement during pipe installation.
Forsheda 560 is designed for PVC pipesystems conforming to ASTM 2241.
F-560 Rieber IPS seal meets or exceeds current ASTM 2241 pipe sealing requirements.

All data in inches.
On each seal, profile thickness, outer diameter, recommended pipe measurement and production period are given. The corresponding data are also on the packaging.
Subject to change for technical reasons
The spigot and socket of the pipe should be checked for damage prior to jointing.
The pipe spigot should be chamfered with an angle of 15°, taking care to remove all burrs. Both spigot and socket including the sealing ring should be free from dirt and other foreign matter.
Lubricant should be applied evenly to the spigot end of the pipe.
Immediately after lubrication, the spigot should be brought into contact with the socket.
Both spigot and socket should correctly aligned and then slide the spigot into the socket, thus compressing the seal until the joint is fully made.
