Q: Hello, Do you do custom spools? I need two spools. OD: 8" Length: 40"
A: Yes, we custom fabricate all tri-clamp spool assemblies to order.
Q: What are the ID tolerances for a 3/4" spool assembly? Is this a typical standard in the industry? I want to ensure I have min
steps between old and new tubing from various manufactures.
A:All tolerances are +/- 0.005. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Q:What would the RA finish be on the ID and OD? Is this hand-welded or machine welded? What weld spec is used when welding?
A: Our standard surface finish for these tri-clamp spool assemblies is 32Ra ID/OD. We can also offer 20Ra and 15Ra for an additional
fee. Regarding welding specs, we weld to ASME Section IX and AWS 18.1. These are semi-automatically welded.
Q:Do you make or sell any TC fittings that have a dip tube attached? Specifically I am interested in a 1.5” Tri-Clamp. We are using this fitting to connect to a bulkhead for a liquid input and would like to direct the liquid stream straight down into the vessel
with the dip tube, to ensure the liquid does not drip down the side of the vessel. We will be connecting the dip tube to a 1.5” Tri-Clamp on the bulkhead and a 1.5” Tri-Clamp to barb adapter (both from Sanitary Fittings).
A: We have made what has been referred to as "dip tubes" in the past. I can send you copies of previous customer drawings for dip
tubes for your reference. We are able to equip the ends with a variety of fitting connections including tri-clamp elbows, NPT
Threads or hose barbs. Please contact us for more information.
Q: what is the pressure rating of a spool
A: All of our tri-clamp fittings have pressure ratings that are dictated by the type of clamp used in the process line. The pressure
rating is also affected by the temperature of the media that you are processing. For exact pressure ratings, please consult any of
our Tri-Clamp Clamps for the size that you are working with and it's corresponding pressure rating.
Q: DWhat is the minimum length of these spool assemblies.o this product ship via freight?
A: We can manufacture these tri-clamp spool assemblies to an overall length of 1.5" or greater.
