I have a male welded fitting on my kettles, and need 1/2" female thread to 1/2" copper (5/8" OD). What do I need?
The Swagelok fittings are sized for TUBING, which is sized by OD. If you have 5/8 OD tubing, you need a 1/2 NPT to 5/8 tube fitting.
elbow male to tube
elbow female to tube
SS-1010-1-8 Straight male to tube
SS-1010-7-8 Straight female to tube
Unfortunately, I don't see any with an easy Ebay search... One thing you can do is search "swagelok" on Ebay and sift through the many listings. It doesn't take long, and many people do not list the actual part number... good luck
