The Ford Ultra-Tite compression coupling provides an immediate lock onto Polyethylene Pipe (PEP/IPS) or Polyethylene Tubing (PET/CTS) when inserted to the internal stop.
(No insert required or recommended)
Ultra-Tite couplings on corporation stops are assembled hand tight and must be removed for drilling or tapping machine adaptation to corporation stop outlet thread. Once the tap is made, the Ultra-Tite should be securely tightened to the corporation stop outlet thread.
In extremely cold conditions, Pitorifice Key Corps utilize mainline water flow to help prevent service line freezing. The Pitorifice copper tube opening on the corporation stop inlet, which faces upstream, continuously channels the warmer, faster moving mainline water through a service line loop. The loop channels water from the main, runs inside a basement (with a tee connection for the customer's plumbing) and returns to the main with another Pitorifice Corp copper tube opening that faces downstream.
The Pitorifice option is available on 3/4" and 1" Ford Key Style Corporation Stops. These are non-stock parts. Please call or write for prices and minimum order quantities. Standard lengths are for direct water main taps; longer lengths for saddles are available.
TO ORDER: Add "-P" to any 3/4" or 1" Corp Stop catalog number for Pitorifice option.
Note: The Pitorifice option is for Key Style Corporation Stops only.
