Gravity Flow pvc fitting

Unread postAuthor: MisterSteve124 » Tue Nov 28, 2006 3:52 pm

I am looking for fittings on mcmaster for my new pnuematic but when I look for 1.5" male adapters the only ones it has say gravity feed under schedule. It says Non Rated(Gravity Flow) so I'm guessing that wouldn't work right? Why don't they have pressure rated male adapters?

mcmasters parts labeled as gravity flow are DWV.

Look for nsf-pw or another pressure rating.

I had this same problem.

They are marked as male x female adapters. There's a picture of two black SCH-80 male threaded adapters screwing into each other. Just choose socket weld x NPT male when you get there.
