This Dixon 21MP-G series clamp adapter sanitary fitting is made of stainless steel 304 and has a tube connection and a male NPT connection. This adapter fitting connects pipes or fittings with different end types. It clamps onto a tube on one end and has male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads on the other for connecting to female threaded pipe. The clamp end creates a non-permanent seal, providing access to lines, and the NPT threads create a tighter seal than straight threads. It is made of stainless steel 304 for resistance to corrosion and high temperatures. This clamp adapter sanitary fitting has a maximum operating pressure rating of 250 pounds per square inch (psi) at 70 degrees F ambient temperature and is suitable for use in food, beverage, and dairy applications.
Pipe and tube fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. Sanitary fittings are used in the food, beverage, biotech, pharmaceutical, and other sanitary process industries to transport fluids through pipe lines and are available in a range of materials, finishes, and shapes. When purchasing fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size, and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
