Ratings and specifications are as follows:
Threads utilised on HOKE® Precision Instrument Pipe Fittings are National Pipe Taper (NPT) which exceed the requirements of ANSI B1.20.1.
Pressure Ratings for temperatures up to 38°C (100°F) are identified for each individual pipe fitting in the dimensional data charts.
Temperatures noted below apply to basic fitting capabilities. In all cases consideration must also be given to the type of thread sealant used. For example, PTFE tape has a maximum temperature rating of 232°C (450°F).
316 Stainless Steel: -198 to 648°C (-325 to 1200°F) Note: Prolonged exposure to temperature over 426°C (800°F) is not recommended.
Brass: -198 to 204°C (-325 to 400°F)
