applications: hayward self-aligning bulkhead fitting allow straight piping connections to be made to the tops of domed tanks or other curved surfaces. A swivel ball connection corrects for the curved surface, not other fittings or piping is required.
no hassle connections: now it's no longer necessary to fabricate expensive, complex sections of pipe to make these types of offset connections. Just install the fitting onto the domed tank, position the swivel connection to line up with the pipe and you're ready to make the straight line connection.
unique design: hayward self-aligning bulkhead fittings feature a unique swivel ball design. The piping connection to the fitting is made into a threaded ball that swivels on a ptfe seat. Once the connection is positioned at the desired offset angle, a plastic lock ring firmly hold it in position. Straight to offset connections of up to 27 degrees can easily be made.
