Well if they are not working you just might have another problem with the fittings themselves.Snake Bitten said:The reason I ask, is I am thinking of going to a Loctite Thread Sealant, probably the 574...
Regular thread sealants just ain't cutting it...
Simple- pick up the WHITE tube of loctite teflon PIPE thread sealer.Toby said:From what I remember using tape is a no no and what is recommended is a teflon sealing compound.
you may want to contact the maker of the connectors and see what they recommend.
Exactly, most people have no idea that NPT threads are not the same diameter along the length of the threads. They are tapered.HP said:I guess understanding the sealing nature of NTP threads and the mechanism
of compression fittings, give you some insight into what works best.
Even though NTP thread are interference cut to provide an almost total seal,
for good measure an extra sealant is applied.
Compression fittings benefit most from a lubricant that will allow you to
apply just the right torque to create the metal to metal 45deg or 70deg seal.
