Hayward Flow Control Systems has introduced a line of industrial bulkhead fittings.
Designed to allow safe, quick pipe connections to plastic or metal tanks, the BFA series bulkhead fittings come standard with heavy duty, full-buttress, left-hand threads to prevent leaks under pressure. The fittings are molded 1 in. longer than previous versions for use with thicker or double-wall tanks. They have a heavy wall thickness to help withstand most abuse; are rated to 150 PSI; have EPDM or FPM gasket seals; and feature a hex body for one-person installation.
The fittings are available in PVC, Corzan® CPVC, and PPL with standard flanges in sizes from 1/2 in. to 6 in. and large flanges in sizes from 1/2 in. to 1 in.
