  • Fittings: Tapered Pipe Fittings
    Nominal pipe sizes do not match the outside or inside thread diameter. To determine pipe sizes up to 1¼", measure the outside diameter of the threads. Subtract ¼" for the pipe thread size. (example, a fitting measures ¾" at the large end, then subtract ¼", the fitting in question is a ½" pipe
  • Case Study:Thread Sealant Compatibility Issues with Plastic Piping at Semiconductor Fab
    A leading international semiconductor manufacturer recently cut out and sent a section of pipe to Plast-O-Matic complaining of a leaking check valve, pointing to cracks on both the inlet and outlet. Cracked ports on a new valve generally indicate that the installer used a pipe wrench or channel
  • Threaded Connections
    from completely closing. To avoid this problem, clean out old tape, and do not apply tape to the first thread.ASSEMBLE "HAND TIGHT" followed by a quarter (1/4) turn with a strap wrench. Do not over tighten. DO NOT USE PIPE WRENCHES, vise grips, channel locking pliers, etc. on plastic pipe
  • New Pressure Tester Helps Fine-Tune Irrigation Systems
    at the ARS Northwest Irrigation and Soils Research Laboratory, in Kimberly, Idaho. Trout is with the ARS Water Management Research Laboratory, in Parlier, California. The unit weighs close to a pound, is about the size of a pipe wrench, and is accurate to within the accepted 5 percent. Kincaid
  • Safety Guide for Selecting and Using Quick Action Couplings and Related Accessories (.pdf)
    mounting hardware, especially breakaway clamps. 3.3 Fitting Installation: Use a thread sealant, lubricant, or a combination of. both when assembling pipe thread joints in quick action couplings. Be sure the. 4.3 Visual Inspection All Other: The following items must be tightened,. sealant
  • Case Studies Involving Jaeco Pumps
    . The compression fittings also allow easy piping changes and the installation brought great kudos from the pipe fitters. They joined pipe using only wrenches and enjoyed 100% perfection. Not one single GripSeal TM connection failed. We welcome the opportunity to help solve your difficult applications. 17 Lee
  • Basics Of Design Engineering: Fluid Power
    . Modifying an installed system only requires a hacksaw, wrenches, and a few new parts. And because tube connections have higher leaktight integrity than pipe connections, the systems can be reassembled easily and reliably. Tube systems are also relatively easy to disassemble. Virtually every fitting
  • Calculating True Conveyor Drive Costs
    tracking screw out until it contacts mounting plate. 16. Determine proper plug and remove 1/4 pipe plug in reducer (review reducer instructions). 17. Check to be sure oil is in reducer (fill if required, review reducer instructions). 18. Remove 2-piece vent plug from packet and screw brass section
