Installation Instructions for the Ikon Stem Tube Arrangement
Ensure that the valve is in the fully OPEN position. On the center position of the rising stem, drill 8.5mm hole ready to tap out to 10mm x 1.5mm thread, as shown in below photo.
Locate the Stem Adaptor, apply thread locker to thread and then screw into the 10mm tapped hole. Tighten as required.
Locate adaptor for the threaded extension bar and place on Stem Adaptor, locating the position for the M8 grub screws to tighten onto the Stem Adaptor. Thread locker should be used on all threaded components.
Locate the threaded extension bar and screw into the M20 nut that is welded to the Threaded extension bar mounting adaptor, with the chamfered end screwed into the nut to locate into the recess on the stem adaptor.
Place the inner tube over the threaded extension bar and locate flange onto the handwheel. Using the supplied clamps and bolts, secure the inner tube by using the handwheel spokes and bolting at even intervals around the flange.
Screw the outer tube into position where the bolt interlock will engage into the M20 slot on the inner tube.
Once the outer tube is positioned in place, screw on the M20 locking nut to secure the outer tube in the correct position. Now the Fortress bolt interlock can be bolted to the mounting bracket, the key is required to retract the bolt to allow the valve to be closed/shut, with the key remaining trapped once valve is moved from fully opened position. In the fully opened position spot, drill the inner tube through the 10mm hole to know when valve is fully opened.
