Bulkhead Tank Adapters

Connecting a tank to a pipeline requires a specific fitting, known as a bulkhead tank adapter. Thanks to their EPDM or Viton gaskets, schedule 80 PVC bulkhead tank adapters allow you to create a powerful, long-lasting seal that prevents unwanted fluid leaks into the pipeline. These fittings are easy to install and ideal for a variety of industrial and lab applications, as well as aquatic applications

Schedule 80 PVC is the ideal material for bulkhead tank adapters because of its exceptional strength, resistance to corrosion, warp resistance, and all-around performance and versatility. Since schedule 80 PVC is thicker and more durable than schedule 40 PVC, it’s better suited for high-pressure applications and/or applications involving highly corrosive chemicals and agents and harsh elements.

For corrosion resistance, it’s hard to find a material that performs better than PVC. Unlike various metals, PVC won’t rust, pit, or wear down over time, even when handling harsh media. These tank adapters can stand up to many of these most corrosive agents and offer reliable performance for years.

Schedule 80 PVC has a max operating temperature of 140⁰ F, so it’s not recommended for exceptionally high-temperature applications. For those applications, you want to consider using schedule 80 CPVC fittings. Always make sure to pay attention to the temperature ratings of your fittings to ensure you are getting the appropriate material best suited for your particular application.

Special features include:

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Capable of handling high-pressure applications
  • Maximum operating temperature of 140⁰ F
  • EPDM or Viton gaskets
  • Available in various end types and sizes
