Stainless-steel connectors for leakproof sealing - FasTest Inc.

The TwistMate connectors feature stainless-steel construction for greater durability and corrosion resistance.
The TwistMate MIT (internal) and MET (external) connectors now feature stainless-steel construction for greater durability and corrosion resistance. Previously available in heat-treated black steel, the connectors provide a seal design that delivers a leaktight connection to threaded pipe — quickly and without the use of wrenches and thread sealants. A twist-to-connect and pressure-assisted, grip-and-seal design allows fast, safe, and repeatable threaded connections, eliminating thread wear and damage common to traditional connectors. The connectors simply twist to finger-tight onto the mating thread profile. When pressurized with air, gas, or hydraulic pressure, the main seal is pressed against the test piece and the connector will automatically seal. The internal piston action maintains the seal with minimum pressure.The connectors, rated for pressures up to 10,000 psi, come in sizes from 1/8 to 3-in. NPT, as well as BSPP, BSPT, SAE, and metric specifications.FasTest is dedicated manufacturer of productivity and high quality improvement connection tools for pressure and vacuum testing applications.FasTest Inc., 1646 Terrace Dr., Roseville, MN 55113, (800) 444-2373,
