Universal ball joints UT series

Features

Allows adjustment of spray direction over a range of 50 degrees as desired.

[Metal type]
• Withstands pressure design. Available from 1/8" to 3/4" in pipe connection sizes.
• Use UT-S303 (stainless steel 303) at pressure under 15 MPa, UT-B (brass) under 4 MPa.

[Plastic type]
• Lightweight, high seal performance. Spray direction is adjustable while spraying (up to 0.3 MPa).
• Use UT-FRPP at pressure under 1 MPa (at room temperature).

Cautions for both types:
• Do not use under conditions where water hammer or sudden change of water pressure occurs.
• For use with KB and KKBP series nozzles, a different type of UT Ball Joints are required. Inquire with us for details.

Note: The above photos are UT Ball Joints with spray nozzles attached.

Applications

• Accurate nozzle alignment is possible after connected to a pipe.
• Where large changes in spray direction are required depending on nozzle application such as cleaning and air blowing.
