“AE” Fig.135 (4-Way) and Fig.136 (2-Way) type breeching inlets are designed, constructed and manufactured in accordance with BS 5041 : Part 3 : 1975.
The materials used in the manufacture of the breeching inlets are in conformity to the standard’s requirement. The body is casted from spheroidal graphite iron and the inlets are made of BS1400 LG2 gunmetal and copper alloy parts with bronze spring, stainless steel locknut, washer, etc.,
The internal part of the breeching inlet bodies are coated with “black” epoxy cold tar paint which is a good anti-corrosion protection.
The inlet blankcaps are rubber with chrome chain. Brass or gunmetal blankcaps are also available on request.
The breeching inlets are individually hydrostatically tested on the body and inlets at 20 bars (approx. 300 PSI) and the non-return valves are tested to 1.7 bars (approx. 25 PSI) to ensure that no leaks are evident under such low pressure as required by the standard.
The 2-Way and 4-Way outlet flange connections are 100mm and 150mm PN16 FF (standard) respectively. Other flange connections eg., BS10 Table ‘D’ or ‘E’, ANSI #150 flat-face (FF) or raised-face (RF) are available upon request.
