About Our Hosetail Adapters

Connecting with clients for better efficiency is part of The Metal Company culture.

The Tri Clover Ferrule, RJT Male Part, and RJT Weld Liner are often ordered along with a swaged Hosetail to use for dairy or wine tanks. After analysing this common ordering pattern, a core range of hosetails with pre-welded union connections have been developed by The Metal Company to make installation quick, easy, and cost effective.

Hosetails are now available with the following options:

  • Single swaged hosetail to butt-weld tube connection (Code Prefix: SSSH)
  • Single swaged hosetail to Tri Clover ferrule (Code Prefix: SSSHFER)
  • Single swaged hosetail to RJT male part (Code Prefix: SSSHMP)
  • Single swaged hosetail to RJT weld liner (Code Prefix: SSSHWL)
  • Double swaged hosetail to butt-weld tube connection (Code Prefix: SDSH)
  • Double swaged hosetail to RJT weld liner (Code Prefix: SDSHWL)

 

Note: Some people refer to hosetails as ‘barbed tails’ or ‘hose tails’, but we like to keep things together.
