Haihao Group shares tips for assembling stainless steel threaded pipe fittings

As experts in the field of pipeline systems, Haihao Group not only provides customers with a variety of high-quality pipeline system products but also possesses expertise in the professional knowledge of pipeline systems. Stainless steel threaded pipe fittings play a crucial role in various industries, providing reliable connections for pipeline systems. However, proper assembly is essential to ensure leak-free operation and optimal performance. This article will introduce some important guidelines to follow during the assembly process:

Confirm Thread Compatibility: Before assembly, please confirm whether the internal and external threads are compatible and free from any impurities or contaminants.

Apply Thread Sealant: Wrap 3 to 6 turns of thread sealant tape clockwise on the external threads. The number of turns depends on the thickness of the tape. Optionally, a small amount of lubricating oil can be applied to the threads to prevent seizing (recommended).

Compact and Rotate: Press down on the thread sealant tape (clockwise rotation) to ensure it adheres to the threads.

Hand Tighten: Hand-tighten the fittings in place first, then use the appropriate tools to tighten them to the recommended torque.

Avoid Overexertion: Avoid applying excessive force during tightening. Use steady, consistent pressure to secure the fittings in place.

Support Long Pipelines: If the assembled pipeline is long, consider providing adequate support to prevent deformation, which could lead to leaks or loosening.

Handle Valves with Care: When connecting stainless steel valves to fittings via threads, prevent valve deformation by first using a wrench to secure the valve near the fitting end, then tightening the fitting. Additionally, do not use pipe wrenches on valves; instead, use an adjustable wrench.

Following these assembly guidelines will help ensure the proper installation of stainless steel threaded pipe fittings, promoting system integrity and long-term operation.
