ACME threaded couplings are machined from steel bar stock. They are used to couple two lengths of NH3 transfer hoses.
Continental Acme Thread couplings are manufactured in a complete range of sizes for most applications, to and from storage, field nurse tanks and applicators. They feature a superior hand tightening arrangement eliminating the need for hammers or wrenches for securing a tight fit. The acme nut shell is a rugged light-weight aluminum casting molded around a steel insert insuring strength and reliability. A steel lock ring positions the nut for fast handling and protection of the sealing surface of stem.
