BRANCH CONNECTIONS TO SMALL DIAMETER WASTE PIPES

PAM KONFIX, the easiest solution

The easiest way to connect cast iron systems to other drainage materials is to use rubber connectors or plugs. Flexible couplings and stepping rings are also available to facilitate connections where variances in diameters have to be compensated for.

Rubber transition connectors PAM KONFIX and PAM KONFIX-Multi are used to connect waste pipes made from other materials (steel or plastics) to a PAM cast iron pipe system.

PAM Konfix installation

  1. Insert the PAM KONFIX rubber connector loosely onto the pipe until the stop point is reached. Then secure to the pipe by tightening the hose clamp screw.
  2. Cut the pre-cut rubber to size with a knife and remove the lid.

Warning: Do not cut too deep as you may damage the lip seal inside.

  1. Mark the insert depth on the connecting pipe. Apply a lubricant and push in. The assembly is complete.
  2. The connecting steel pipe illustrated here is only an example. The PAM KONFIX rubber connectors can be used to connect all waste pipe materials to the PAM cast iron systems.

EPDM plugs

The plugs can be pierced to the appropriate groove from 32 mm up to 54 mm waste connections and the center disc torn out where required.

PAM MULTIQUICK, TRANSITION CONNECTOR

PAM Multiquick

To connect PAM cast iron pipes with an outside diameter of 109-112 mm (tolerance range for PAM cast iron pipes is DN 100) to other rigid materials with an outside diameter from 72-110 mm. To connect PAM cast iron pipes with an outside diameter of 109-112 mm to waste pipes with an outside diameter up to 115 mm maximum. The connection is made with two hose clamps both suitable to address larger diameter tolerances.

PAM Multiquick installation

  1. Push the open end of the PAM MULTIQUICK connector over the pipe end and place the hose clamp to its tightening position.
  2. Then use a knife to cut open the pre-cut lid to the corresponding outside diameter of the connecting waste pipe. Then push the second hose clamp loose over the connecting rubber end.
  3. Push the connecting pipe into the PAM MULTIQUICK connector and tighten the hose clamp in the right position. Ensure that the sealing zones (face ends of pipes or fittings) are clean: remove paint flakes and cement residues. The hose clamps should only be tightened manually with a screwdriver to avoid any damage to the PAM MULTIQUICK rubber connector.

How to select the best solutions for connection

PAM cast iron connections to other materials may often be required in new construction projects or for renovation.  Different connections can be used with products from our catalog (see figures below).

Depending on the outside diameters, solutions exist for compensation. If you are unsure of the circumference of the material being connected, you can use a circumference tape. The range of tolerance of the different joints can help you find the required solution.

The table to download below, lists the solutions for connecting PAM cast iron to the most frequently encountered material.
