1/2" Slip FPT Bulkhead A 1/2" Slip FPT (Female Pipe Thread) Bulkhead is a type of plumbing fitting used to connect pipes to tanks. The bulkhead has a smooth, cylindrical section that fits into a drilled hole in the tank and provides a secure connection between the pipes and the container, helping to prevent leaks. The "FPT" refers to the internal threading of the fitting, which is compatible with a 1/2" male pipe thread. The slip design of the bulkhead allows for easy installation, even in tight spaces. Simply drill a hole in the tank, insert the bulkhead, and attach the pipes. The fitting can be secured with nuts, gaskets, or other sealing materials to ensure a tight and leak-free connection. It is important to choose the right material for the bulkhead, taking into account factors such as temperature, pressure, and exposure to chemicals. 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.
