Male /female adapters are designed to adapt a female connection to another size and/or type of connection without the need for additional couplings. In selecting an adapter involving two different sized connections, the larger connection should be on the male end where it is possible to maximize the mechanical strength of the adapter.
Other Adapters Autoclave supplies many other types of adapters on special order. These include Autoclave UniVersa-Lok swaged-type connections, socketweld to O.D. tube or nominal pipe size, male or female AN connections and others.
Materials All Autoclave adapters are precision machined from coldworked Type 316 stainless steel. Other materials available on special order.
Note: Special material couplings may be supplied with four flats in place of standard hex.
