Bulkhead Fitting



An economical fitting best used on small tanks in mild applications. Can be installed on sidewall, overflow or dome. May be used as a overflow fitting with all chemicals, since it’s non-wetted. Bulkhead Fittings must be installed from the inside of the tank, requiring tank entry for repairs and maintenance. They should not be used on tanks greater than 3,000 gallons or tanks greater than 6 feet in height.

Note

Over time, this fitting “creeps,” causing the nut to loosen. Regular monitoring for drips is critical.
