Poly Alloy Vs. Brass PEX Fittings

PEX refers to cross-linked polyethylene Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer with a variable crystalline structure and a vast range of applications and is one of the most widely produced plastics in the world.  The two primary types are low density (LDPE) and high density (HDPE).  Where LDPE is used in film applications ranging from trash bags to frozen food packagingHDPE is more tightly packed and stiffer than LDPE.  Therefore, PEX fittings and tubing are made from HDPE.

Automated Retractable Chemical Injection Quills

Chemical Injection

Chemical injection is required in a wide range of applications and industries including oil pipelines, gas processing, water, and wastewater as well as mining. A chemical injection system is comprised of equipment which injects chemicals into the system at a specific pressure for the system application and provides chemical dosing to avoid process line failures. The process may operate intermittently or continuously in both upstream or downstream systems and is used in corrosion prevention, well cleaning, pipeline flow enhancement and oil recovery.

What You Need to Know About Applications for Stainless Steel Fittings

There are many different types of steel, with the two most common in industrial applications being stainless steel and carbon steel. They often look very similar, sometimes indistinguishable from one another, yet they are vastly different in the functions they serve.

Understanding BSP Adaptor Pressure Ratings

As with other fitting types, BSP fittings have such a broad range of applications and are made from a wide variety of materials. In addition to steel, stainless steel, other alloys and brass, BSP thread-style fittings fulfill applications where the materials are cast iron, bronze or plastics, such as PTFE, PVC and nylon.

Understanding BSPP Parallel and BSPT Tapered Threads

BSP threads are derived from British Standard Whitworth (BSW), which is an imperial-unit-based screw thread standard. BSW threads were developed by Joseph Whitworth in 1841 and later adopted as a British standard. The Whitworth thread was the world's first national screw thread standard, which gave wave to the vast popularity of BSP.

What's the Difference Between BSP and NPT Thread Styles?

The two most popular thread styles in the world are British Standard Pipe (BSP) and
National Pipe Taper (NPT). They are the international standard for joining fittings and pipes. However, the difference between these thread styles is something to note.
