Stainless Steel Connectors Improve Corrosion Resistance

FasTest TwistMate connectors provide a seal design that delivers a leak-tight connection to threaded pipe—quickly and without the use of wrenches and thread sealants. Previously available in heat-treated black steel, TwistMate MIT (internal) and MET (external) connectors now come standard with rugged stainless steel construction for greater durability and corrosion resistance.

Suited to broad range of applications, including filling, flushing, plugging, calibrating, and venting, TwistMate connectors are simply twisted to finger-tight onto the mating thread profile. When the system is 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.
