Flagg Offers Catalog

On Complete Line Of

Fittings And Flanges

Stanley G. Flagg & Co. of Stowe,

Penn., is offering a free catalog of its complete line of fittings and flanges for the marine industry.

Flagg-Flow fittings have been a part of the Flagg product line for over 50 years. During that time, the company's engineers have devel- oped a complete line of bronze fit- tings for brazed joints.

The Flagg-Flow family includes a complete line of straight size and reducing fittings; unions; flanges (commercial and Navy) and high pressure fittings. Many of the high pressure fittings are designed for ultrasonic testing.

The fittings are used extensively by the naval shipbuilding and repair industry. They are currently used in many of the critical piping systems throughout the ship. They include water (salt and potable), air lines, refrigeration systems, oil lubrication and vacuum lines.

Nearly all of Flagg's fittings are designed in strict accordance with military specifications.

The catalog lists part numbers and specifications for the entire line of Flagg-Flow fittings. Photographs and diagrams are also included.

In addition, Flagg offers an in- structional video and booklet, "Suc- cessful Brazing with Flagg-Flow."

These cover step-by-step tech- niques for every aspect of brazing, from proper fit and clearance to cooling and cleanup.
