PVC Nipples

Machined Schedule 80 PVC nipples comply fully with ASTM D2464, threads conform to ASTM F1498, and the pipe is extruded from PVC 1120-1220 meeting ASTM D1784 and meets ASTM D1785, products standard 21-70


3 Types of Plastics

  • W
    White Nylon: made from virgin grade formulated to resist physical stress and abrasion. This material meets F.D.A. requirements of Code of Federal Regulation part 177.1500 and is therefore suitable for food contact surfaces.
    Temperature Range: -40°F to 200° F
    Working Pressure: 125 PSI maximum.
  • B
    Black Polyethylene: made from a high molecular weight linear polyethylene formulated for chemical compatibility and high impact resistance at lower temeratures. Polyethylene is NSF approved for potable water.
    Temperature Range: -65°F to 190°F
    Working Pressure: 125 PSI maximum.
  • P
    Polypropylene: made from the finest polypropylene resins. Polypropylene is used for its resistance to a wide range of chemicals. Working pressures decrease as temperatures increase.
    NSF-approved materials
    FDA-approved materials

 

Plastic Compression Fittings
  • Standard nut and sleeve provided

Corrosion resistant thermoresins designed to resist vibration, provide good electrical insulation, low flow resistance, and resistance to scale buildup.

Add letter to the end of part number to denote the type you prefer.
  • N = Nylon
  • P = Polypropylene
  • C = Celcon
  • Some available in White Nylon

Standard nut and sleeves will be provided (sleeve is integral part of nut). Other sizes available upon request.
