plumbing and accessories help
Posted 21 October 2009 - 09:28 AM
had some questions regarding 'plumbing and accessories' excel file.
btw i have added pics of parts to this file and can upload if anyone's interested
can someone let me know what a
3" too 2.5" NPT cast iron sewer clean out
is? Is the 'clean out' part a directive about what to do with a cast
iron sewer, or a compound noun in plumber-speak?
2" black 90deg elbow with bung - a bung is like a rubber stopper?
union - same as coupling?
Other parts I have translated from plumber jargon to civilian-speak:
nipple = pipe threaded on the outside, both ends
coupling=pipe threaded on the inside, both ends
black = not galvanized (?)
close = no unthreaded pipe (e.g. black nipple close is pipe threaded on outside of non-galvanized pipe with no unthreaded bit in the middle)
cap = what you might think, threaded on inside
plug = what you might think, threaded on outside
tee, elbow = what u might think
street elbow - pipe threaded on outside on one end and inside on other end, or some form of communicable hockey disease

we are now at v3.x. there are new part lists, drawings and instructions over in the wiki. i encourage you to use those and not the v1 ones. see here: http://gekgasifier.p...he-GEK-Gasifier
the raw vessel dimensions are the same between the versions. but many accessory and vessel intervention issues change. things get easier and better as the versions progress.

dimensions aren't published. so i must do a v2 version or buy from gekgasifier, right?
A humble suggestion would be to make the v1 stuff not be the 1st thing one sees at
also its not clear (wasn't to me anyway) that the link to http://www.gekgasifi...essories v1.xls
is outdated - it does say v1 in the file but its not explained anywhere that that plumbing stuff is outdated.
