Technical Tuesday: Why Are BSP Fittings So Common in New Zealand?
BSP stands for British Standard Pipe and have been adopted internationally as they interconnect and seal pipes and fittings by mating a male thread with a female thread. Watch Huntley as he talks about why they are so common in New Zealand.
Socket weld fittings are used with schedule pipe, which fits into the recess of the fitting and then a fillet weld can be used to join them. Watch Frank as he discusses our range of Socket Weld Fittings.
Technical Tuesday: What’s the Difference Between EPDM, FKM & HNBR Seals?
EPDM, FKM and HNBR seals are used with our Press-fit system and have different purposes and properties. Watch Huntley as he discusses the difference between each seal to find out what seal might be right for your application.
Technical Tuesday: What are our BSP to Tube Fittings
BSP to tube adapters are used when connecting BSP with imperial tube as normal BSP weld nipples and sockets don’t work nicely with imperial tube. We stock two different types of BSP to tube adapters. A weld nipple adapter, also known as a reducing weld nipple, and a weld socket adapter, that was developed by The Metal Company. Watch Huntley discuss what BSP to tube adapters are.
Cast Iron Butterfly Valves are used in pipelines such as water lines, glycol lines, sewer lines and less frequently in hygienic lines. Watch Patrick discuss more about our range of Cast Iron Butterfly Valves
RJT Fittings are measured according to the size tube they fit. It is often mistaken that the outside diameter of the fitting is the size of the Weld Liner or Male Part, but that is not the case. Watch Huntley go through how to correctly measure your RJT Fittings.
Technical Tuesday: How To Measure Tri Clover Ferrules
Tri Clovers are measured according to the tube size they fit, It is often mistaken that the outside diameter of the flange end of the ferrule is interpreted as the size of the tri clover, but that is not the case. Watch the video to find out more.
Technical Tuesday: Tri Clover Expansion Ferrules Explained
An expansion ferrule can be identified by the ridges on the inside of the ferrule. It also slips over the dairy tube rather than butt welding to it like a normal ferrule. Watch Huntley explain more in the video above.
The Mac Union, also known as a BSP union or threaded union, is mostly used to access BSP threaded pipework.
Mac Unions are made up of three parts; the Female-Male Union Part, Female-Female Mac Union Part and O-ring seal.
Technical Tuesday: Pipe Schedule and what this means
Pipe Schedule is the standard method to define the thickness and pressure rating of pipe. Watch Huntley explain the correlation between schedule number and thickness of pipe and other components to note.
Pipe fittings come in a range of different sizes and shapes to suit your pipe line configuration and are used to join it together to transfer liquids. Sinead will take you through The Metal Company’s range and show you how they work.
