Easy Tank Connections
Hayward’s BFA Series Industrial Bulkhead Fittings (Tank Adapters) easily permit safe, quick pipe connections to be made to plastic, metal or plastic tanks. Simply cut the proper size opening in the tank, slide the body of the fitting through it, and then just tighten the nut. The fitting is now ready to accept the piping connection.
BFA Series Bulkhead Fittings have been designed to stand up to the most demanding applications without leaking – year in and year out. These bulkhead fittings are molded with an extremely heavy wall thickness and will withstand most abuse without failure.
All sizes of BFA Series Bulkhead Fittings come standard with heavy duty full buttress threads to help prevent leaks under pressure. These full buttress threads are substantially stronger than the standard threads on ordinary bulkhead fittings.
The Bulkhead Fitting has been designed so that only one person is needed to install it, not two, unlike other ordinary bulkhead fittings. A special hex shape on the body end of the fitting allows it to be gripped from outside the tank while the nut is tightened.
