  • Stabilized taps provide a means of transferring the radial load away from NPT type threads. This results in a much stronger joint between the pipe thread and the orifice fitting.
  • Eliminates the tendency for a leak to occur between the pipe thread and the orifice fitting.
  • These taps come with all the parts necessary to fit both orifice fittings and orifice unions.
  • The shoe is employed to create a larger flat footprint for the stabilizer nut when used on the curved surface of orifice flange unions.
  • A dielectric kit composed of a spacer and bolt bushings is included to provide a non-conductive barrier between a flow computer and meter run.
