Applications And Features of Stainless Steel Bulkhead Fitting

Bulkheads are fittings that allow a tank or reservoir to drain via a hole. It forms a seal to prevent leaking and will enable you to pipe water from the tank to wherever you need it. Bulkhead fittings are used to join two tubes that are separated by a panel or other barrier. Stainless steel bulkhead fittings are available in inch and metric sizes and can be used with a range of tubing types. They are designed for use with air, water, or oil and used in high-temperature and washdown environments.

Why Stainless Steel Bulkhead Fittings?

Stainless steel has evolved into one of the most widely used and long-lasting materials globally, and it is currently used in a wide range of sectors. This covers various uses that are exclusive to stainless steel fittings and take advantage of the metal’s numerous beneficial qualities.

Stainless steel alloys have superior cryogenic strength, more outstanding work toughness, increased strength and durability, increased elasticity, a more appealing appearance, and cheaper maintenance costs when compared to standard steel. With all of this going on, it’s no surprise that stainless steel is so widely used in various industries.

Stainless steel bulkhead fittings are employed in various high-performance industries, including construction, aerospace, and engineering. Heat resistance is a crucial feature of chromium and nickel alloys, which is vital for aircraft. Applications for stainless steel bulkhead fittings are Pneumatic Control, Air Supply to pneumatic machines, Automatic devices, Instrumentations, Food handling equipment, Laboratories-Medical, Pharmaceutical etc. 

Because it is one of the most hygienic materials and has low maintenance as it does not support the growth of bacteria and is easy to clean and sterilise. It’s easy to clean with a swab and all-purpose cleaner, making it ideal for kitchens and hospitals.

Stainless steel’s strength isn’t it’s only advantage. It also has a polished finish, which is why it is frequently used in architecture. It gives classic and modern environments a clean and contemporary aesthetic without affecting performance.

Features of Bulkhead fittings

  • Corrosion resistance and chemical compatibility with a wide range of chemicals
  • Flow characteristics that are clearly defined and repeatable
  • Many typical plumbing connections are compatible.
  • Construction is tough and long-lasting.
  • Frequently found in leak detection and flow measurement equipment.
  • Bulkhead connector is ideal for general-purpose and single-use applications to connect tubing with the rest of the system.
