Swiveling 90 degree elbow with stationary flange adapts for many applications
Putnam, CT; February 2015—— After successfully custom engineering a new suction and discharge elbow for use on New York Fire Department fireboats, Kochek Company has introduced the specialty product to broader markets. The Connecticut-based manufacturer of high quality water flow products and connections designed the product to FDNY specifications.
Featuring a stationary flange, the 90° elbow incorporates a full-time swivel and locking knob. Such universal adaptability makes the new product well suited for applications beyond its prototype, such as front suction in fire pumpers, fixed assemblies in marinas or shipyards, oil rig platforms, and refinery fire protection inlet manifolds. The new adapter consists of a 6 inch storz head and 6 inch stainless steel flange and may also be ordered with threaded heads. It is available in Kochek’s exclusive Micralox® anodized coating which produces long-lasting resistance to abrasion, chemical and salt corrosion. Micralox is available in several vibrant color options.
