Ball Valve Installation

1. Be sure location is accessible for probe removal and maintenance.
2. Install mounting hardware. Drill a 1½" through-hole, center the thread-o-let over

the hole and weld it onto the condenser vacuum pipe (see Figure 2). Thread the
ball valve assembly into the thread-o-let. Use thread tape or pipe dope to seal the
connection (Alternate: weld thread-o-let to pipe wall, then drill a 1¼" hole in pipe
wall using a hot tap drill).

3. Make sure the probe installs parallel to the floor (see Figure 2).
4. Verify that the probe slides easily through the ball valve assembly and pipe

penetration hole.
