Bulkhead Union

What is bulkhead union?

A bulkhead fitting helps to make the piping connections to the tank. Firstly, a hole is cut on the tank wherein the body of the bulkhead union is inserted. There is a locknut which threads into the body for holding it in place. The locknut of the stainless steel bulkhead union puts pressure on the gaskets which helps it to make a leak-tight seal. The brass bulkhead connector is affordable and should be hand tightened followed by another ¼ to ½ turn. However, overtightening it can make the gasket distorted and cause leakages. These are specially designed fittings which help with liquid free flow in the tank, drum drainage, and other types of plumbing connections.

Hydraulic vs compression bulkhead union

Both hydraulic and compression bulkhead union are used in different types of plumbing systems for connecting pipes of different diameters together. It comes with threaded connection on each side. The compression union does not require any tool for installation and can be hand tightened.

The hydraulic bulkhead fitting comes with a rubber gasket which seals around the pipe as pressure is applied. This is done by tightening one end of the pipe while pushing the other end inside it. This is a more expensive style compared to the compression fitting, but it offers better leakage and contamination protection.
