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.
Stainless Steel Pipe Crosses are used to split flow 4 ways and create manifolds like the Bi-Flow manifold on Bidirectional extraction systems that Best Value Vacs is known for. They can also be connected together creating even larger manifolds when combined with valves and other stainless steel fittings.
