A 38mm elbow with recessed threaded socket for use on Series A and custom built Water, Waste and Grey Waste tanks.
The advantage of specifying an E38PR is that you can gain a fair amount of extra capacity on a tank when the fittings are mounted to the top.
For example: The height difference between a standard E38P and an E38PR is 23mm. A tank measuring say 750mm long x 500mm wide will gain an extra 8 litres in capacity if the E38PR fitting is specified.
The hosetails are screwed onto male threaded HDPE socket by means of a separate female nut. The socket is welded to the tank by Tek Tanks using an advanced fusion welding process. The hosetail is sealed with a ribbed rubber washer that contacts the underside of the hosetail and the top of the machined socket face. These fittings need only to be done up hand tight.
The price includes marking out, drilling the hole, welding the threaded socket and the pressure testing of the whole fitted assembly.
The threaded socket is not removable once welded to the tank and stands 10mm above the tank top. Please allow for this measurement when considering how to get the tank in and out of position.
A dip pipe for drawing off the contents with a pump can be fitted to the E38PR. Please see the Dip Pipe products for more information on lengths and available diameters.
Height above tank top:
E38PR = 85mm
