GN 300.5 Threaded Stud Type All-Stainless Steel Adjustable Levers

Our new product intro today is GN 300.5 Threaded Stud Type All-Stainless Steel Adjustable Levers, in inch and metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant adjustable hand levers are the result of modern industrial design. Their all-stainless steel construction makes them suitable for applications in the food processing and chemical industries.

The levers have a sand blasted satin finish and are offered in two types, Type IS with screw with internal hexagon, or Type AS with screw with external hexagon. The Type AS version complies with the sanitary requirement of “preventing dammed-up fluid.”

These adjustable levers have proven to be ideal wherever parts have to be clamped in a confined space or in a particular lever position. The insert is connected to the lever via serrations which can easily be disengaged. Pulling the lever upwards disengages the serrations allowing it to be swiveled to the ideal clamping position. When releasing the lever, the serrations automatically re-engage.

GN 741 and GN 742 Aluminum Fill/Drain Plugs

The latest products we'd like to introduce to you are our GN 741 and GN 742 Aluminum Fill/Drain Plugs, available with metric or BSPP parallel threads.

These RoHS-compliant plugs are made of turned aluminum with a matte shot-blast finish. They are available in plain, or with fill or drain symbol laser engraved. The GN 741 types have an NBR synthetic rubber seal, while the GN 742 versions have a seal of Viton rubber. The seal is retained in a groove undercut in the mating face, which prevents it from dropping out and from extruding when the plug is tightened. For this reason the seal can be of a softer material which offers better sealing.

Metric pipe thread sizes from M14 x 1.5 to M42 x 2.0 are available, as well as BSPP parallel threads from G ¼” to G 1½”.
