Best Value Vacs brand stainless steel parts are made with precision 304 Grade Stainless Steel and are clean and free from burrs or debris. These fittings are NPT threads (National Pipe Taper) and will compress against other Female/Male NPT threads creating a tighter and tighter connection. All NPT threads require thread sealant to create a watertight and gas-tight seal between the threads. We recommend using Yellow Gas PTFE Tape because it is rated for gases and is UL listed and it is NOT recommended to use white PTFE tape because it is not rated for gas service.
Branch Tee's are classified by the male threaded NPT connection coming off of the bottom pathway of the tee. This style of tee allows the user to reduce male pipe nipples or hex nipples and creates fewer leak points in an extraction system.
