Providing optimum leak-free sealing, rigidity and reliability, FLUIDLOK Pipe fittings and adaptors have been specifically designed for use on instrumentation, process and control systems, together with equipment employed in chemical, chromatography, petroleum, power generation, pulp & paper plants, etc.
These fittings are manufactured in stainless steel, carbon steel, brass, etc. and in sizes ranging from 1/8”to 2” with a high quality appearance. Pipe threads are available with NPT (National Pipe Taper) and exceed the requirement of ANSI B1.20.1 or BSP/ISO (British Standard Pipe/International Standard Organization) or SAE/MS straight thread with pressure and temperature ratings up to 20,000 psig and 1000°F respectively which are based on ASME Code for Pressure Piping B31.3, process piping, at ambient temperature. All working pressures are calculated in accordance with power piping code ANSI B31.1 and refiner piping code ANSI B31.3.
The male and female threads have a tapered flank and controlled truncation at the crest and root to assure metal to metal crest root contact just as the male-female thread flanks make contact. Upon further tightening, the thread crests flatten out and allow the flanks to make full contact. This full thread profile contact theoretically gives the tapered threads self-sealing ability, however, variations in condition of mating threads, fitting and port materials, assembly procedures and operating conditions make self-sealing highly unlikely without the aid of paste, tape or reapplied thread sealants.
We provide a comprehensive range of pipe fittings and adapters, which are widely used in day-to-day as well as long term applications in commercial entities and industries. All our pipe fittings are offered in numerous sizes and dimensions to suit different purposes. Our products are well tested for reliability and durability. The specifications of these pipe fittings can also be customized as per the requirements of the customers. Please refer our catalog for detailed information.
