Examples of incorrect assembly
Rubber toric ring (2) may twist during installation if the seal is not completely wet or if there are burrs or fins on housing retaining lip (3) that is part of seal ring housing (5) . Misalignments, twists and bulges of the rubber toric ring will cause Duo-Cone Seal failures. If correct installation is not obvious, remove the toric ring from the housing and repeat the installation procedure.

Wipe seal ring face (6) that is part of seal rings (1) by using a lint free cloth. No particles of any kind are permissible on the sealing surfaces. A small piece of paper from a paper towel can force apart the seal ring face, which will cause a leak.Note: Rubber toric ring (2) must never slip on the ramps of seal ring (1) or the ramps of seal ring housing (5) . In order to prevent slippage, allow adequate time for evaporation of the lubricant before proceeding with the procedure. Once the rubber toric ring is correctly positioned, the rubber toric ring must roll only on the ramps.

Apply a thin film of clean oil on the entire seal ring face of one or both seals. Use a lint free cloth or brush in order to distribute the oil evenly. Be careful not to get any oil on the rubber toric rings. Lubricate the seal faces by using the same oil that was used during assembly. Dye may have been used in the oil that was used during assembly. Use the same kind of oil without dye in order to lubricate the seal faces.

Make sure that both seal ring housings (5) are in correct alignment and that the seal ring housings are concentric. Move the parts slowly and move the parts carefully toward each other.Note: Do not force the seal ring and the seal ring housing together in a sudden manner. The seal component could be scratched or the seal component could be broken if the components are slammed together.
Tighten the bolts after the components are in the correct position.Acceptable Lubricants for Assembly
Avoid prolonged skin contact with isopropyl alcohol. Avoid breathing the vapors in enclosed areas without adequate ventilation and do not smoke.Isopropyl alcohol is flammable. Do not use near open flame, welding operations, or around heated surfaces exceeding 482°C (900°F).
Note: Do not use any liquid that leaves an oil film. Do not use any liquid that does not evaporate quickly. All of the guidelines for safety and all of the guidelines for disposal must be followed when you use a flammable liquid. The following liquids are acceptable lubricants for assembly:
