How Water Soluble Socket Spacer Ring Works?
Position

Position ring by aligning outer edge with inner pipe circumference.

Snap in Place

Slide ring inside pipe so tabbed edges can fit snugly and snap-in-place, maintaining the 1/16″ or larger gap while avoiding compression.

Stay in Place

Once secured inside the pipe, ring will stay in place, even when the socket is sideways or inverted

Weld
  1. Tack weld 3 or 4 times maintaining proper interpass temperature, as specified by ASME B31.3 or welding engineer
  2. Square up the pipe after the first tack
  3. Proceed to weld without exceeding interpass temperature
Dissolve

Introduce hot or cold water to dissolve and remove its entire contents, leaving no residue in the pipe or if preferred, simply leave the spacer in the pipe as no adverse effects will result
