1/2" FPT Slip Bulkhead A 1/2" FPT Slip Bulkhead is a type of plumbing fitting used to connect pipes to tanks. The "FPT" stands for "Female Pipe Thread," which means that the fitting has an internal threading that is compatible with a 1/2" male pipe thread. The "slip" refers to the smooth, cylindrical section of the fitting that slides into a drilled hole in the tank or container. The bulkhead fitting provides a secure connection between the pipes and the tank, helping to prevent leaks. It also allows for easy access to the inside of the container, which is useful for maintenance and cleaning purposes. When choosing a 1/2" FPT Slip Bulkhead, it's important to consider the material that it is made of. Common materials include PVC, polypropylene, and brass. Each material has its own unique characteristics, such as durability, resistance to chemicals, and temperature tolerance, so it's important to choose the one that best fits the specific application. Additionally, you may want to consider the thickness of the bulkhead fitting wall. Thicker walls provide greater strength and durability, but can also make the fitting more difficult to install. The exact thickness will depend on the specific application and the pressure and flow rates that the fitting will need to handle.
