Installation Difficulty

By DIYer

Comments about 3/4" (FIP x Male Union) Radiator Union Elbow:

Similar to the 3/4" hot water valve, the distance from the first thread on the union nipple to the top of the union nut in the tightened condition is too small. Another 1/8-1/4" would have made it much easier to install. To actually tighten the nipple onto a radiator( or anything else for that matter) you need to use the smallest slip-jaw plyers you can buy, with the narrowest width of jaw head. Otherwise, materials and quality were OK.

                Q:

                Can this be used to hook up to a chilled water fancoil unit as well?

                  A:

                  As long as you use it as a unit, it could be connected to anything with the same thread size. I recommend that a light coating of thread sealant be applied to the union face (one side or the other, doesn't matter) to help it seal, but as far as what it is connected to, the threads are national pipe, so, as long as you match the size, it should work.
                   
                  For chilled water applications, it is important to insulate the lines and connections to prevent condensation (also heat gain). The insulation needs to be appropriate for chilled applications (not fiberglass) either the grey/black closed cell insulation or the foam tape style. The key to preventing condensation is to seal the joints either with insulation cement or good quality pipe-insulation tape. (There are several versions available commercially, they are basically heavy duty, wide versions of black electrical tape. Electrical tape will work, but being thin, you may need quite a bit.) The goal is to keep the chilled pipe surfaces from being exposed to moisture bearing air, so anything that can handle being wet that will do that, will work. It is not necessary to have a "liquid tight" seal, but it doesn't hurt. The goal is to prevent moisture laden air from condensing on the chilled pipe surfaces and then causing a drip. If it will only drip into the drain pan, then your primary concern shifts to corrosion, which with these brass unions is less of a concern, but the less condensation on the brass, the less oxidation and corrosion over the long haul.
                   
                  I hope this is helpful. Good luck!

                  I don't have specific experience with fancoil units, but this elbow is typically used on hot water radiator systems in a closed loop at relatively low pressures. If the pressure is low, and you're pumping water it might suit your needs.

                Q:

                Does the nipple for this union have "keys" or "spuds" on the ID for installing the nipple with a spud wrench into the cast iron radiator?

                  A:

                  I believe you mean is there a way to tighten the half union , male nipple side by the internal, ID of the fitting via key or spud device. The answer is NO, it is a smoothe bore ID. i tightened the union as 1 and then the entire fitting into the exchanger, then with a small "jerk" of the union nut the fitting is unloosened.

                  Use a little pipe dope and give it a try. Hope This Helps.
