The Chemtrol® socket union is an injection molded polypropylene (PP) thermoplastic fitting for use with chemical processing, industrial plating, chilled water distribution, deionized water lines, chemical drainage and waste water treatment systems. The black PP socket union features female thermo-seal socket connections. This fitting is supplied with FKM fluorocarbon seal which is suited to most applications involving mineral acids, salt solutions, chlorinated hydrocarbons and petroleum oils. It is also available with EPDM ethylene propylene seal which has good abrasion and tear resistance, plus excellent chemical resistance, but not recommended for applications involving petroleum oils or most strong acids. Chemtrol® industrial thermoplastic flow-control systems perform well in harsh environments because they are made with materials that are resistant to abrasion, corrosion, weather, chemical and biological attack. Chemtrol® black polypropylene demonstrates excellent tensile strength, UV stability and versatile chemical resistance properties, making it the material of choice for harsh industrial, outdoor and underground applications.
Chemtrol® premium line of plastic fittings is backed by a 1-year limited manufacturer warranty. Because Chemtrol® is a NIBCO brand the flow-control fittings are unsurpassed in quality, performance and longevity.
