To ensure additional tightness of various types of pipelines, special connecting elements are used - brass locknuts. Such metal products prevent spontaneous unscrewing of fittings in systems, allow them to avoid depressurization and, as a result, leakage of the substance transported through them.
The specifics of the use of brass locknuts
Unscrewing and sliding of fittings from the pipes of the system occurs due to temperature differences (material contraction / expansion) and vibrations. A lock nut (brass) will help to avoid such troubles and, as a result, additional financial costs for their elimination.
Brass threaded locknuts are used in almost all types of pipelines. This is due to the fact that such products are able to ensure a high level of safety of the connecting elements of the system and reliably protect them from spontaneous unwinding.
As a rule, when installing locknuts on other types of fittings, various sealing materials are additionally used, which makes it possible to obtain a stronger and more tight connection. The product itself is made in such a way that its outer part has the configuration of a hexagon and is twisted using a conventional wrench with the corresponding number.
Locknut (brass): advantages of use
A brass locknut has a number of advantages over similar products made from other metals and alloys:
- rich assortment, which allows you to select a product depending on the diameter of the pipeline;
- good indicator of resistance to corrosion and mechanical stress;
- ease of installation;
- ensuring the tightness and efficiency of the system as a whole;
- affordable cost.
However, it must be remembered that all the above advantages of using a locknut (brass) can only be obtained by purchasing a quality product from a reliable and trusted supplier.
