Fitting Lengths

Unread postAuthor: n-strike » Fri May 02, 2008 11:35 pm

Hello again, my fellow SpudFilians...I am here to ask a question. My question is, how long is a 2" PVC coupler is and how long is a 2" cap?

A coupler is 7cm long and an end cap is 4.5cm.

You do know that an end cap doesn't fit over a coupler, right?



...imagine if Spudfiles was called Spudphiles :lol:

I know it doesn't fit over a coupler, I just couldn't find an example. Thanks for the measurements. And bigbob12345, to measure one myself, I would have to go to Home Depot and waste gas just to measure fittings. And I know what someone might say, that why do we have to do it when you could too, but I was thinking that someone might have a gun already built with the fittings I need measured, or just fittings lying around their houses. And I want to know, because it's gonna be part of my next cannon and I want to know how long it would be. And do you know if "cannon" is spelled with 1 N, or 2 Ns? Sorry for the randomness, I just needed to know.

And I edited the first post...I don't know why I would need an example of a coupler beside a cap. Stupid me.

It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer...there must be some sort of length requirement that allows those fittings to get an NSF-pw or NSF-61 designation.

okay
nsf pw is a pressure rating, so is nsf 61 but nsf 61 appears mainly mcmaster parts and nsf pw is on your average harware stor epressure rated parts.

If a fitting has nsf dwv on it instead of nsf pw then it is no pressure rtaed and my explode, if it does have nsf pw on it then it is rated to the same pressure as the pipe it fits onto

Make sence?

It doesn't explain NSF-61 yet, but it's the same thing as NSF-PW really.
