Stainless steel branch connection
The stainless steel mechanical-T bolted branch outlet simplifies installation of branch piping connections.
The Style 422 Stainless Steel Mechanical-T Bolted Branch Outlet is a mechanical solution that creates a direct branch connection at any location a hole can be cut in pipe. The mechanical tee contains a "holefinder" locating collar and pressure-responsive gasket, ensuring long-term reliability. The hole in the pipe is oversized to receive the locating collar, which secures the outlet in position and prevents the tee from moving once installed. The stainless steel mechanical tee is used for corrosive environments as well as applications requiring compliance with the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act. It is NSF Certified in accordance with ANSI/NSF 61 for cold and hot potable water service and ANSI/NSF 372.
