Manifold Pressure Test Kit
For SSM and BSM series and similar radiant heat manifolds with 1" FNPT inlet.
Pressure test kit is connected directly to the radiant heat manifold and allows installers to test and monitor the system for leaks during the installation process and after it's complete.
The kit comes ready for installation - just connect it to one of the manifold's shut-off valves, close the other shut-off valve and pressure test the system.
Typical air pressure testing is at least 40 psi or up to 3 times the operating pressure, but not exceeding 100 psi. Typical test duration is 120 minutes.
For use with SSM or BSM series radiant heat manifolds or similar.
Each Kit includes the following:
(1) 100 psi Pressure Gauge (steel case w/ shatter proof face)
(1) Chrome Plated Test Manifold with Schrader Air Valve
(1) 3/4" Brass Nipple and (1) 3/4" x 1" Bushing to connect the test kit to the radiant heat manifold (shut-off valve)

Always wear eye protection during pressure testing and use safe installation practices.

Is the male end that plugs into the manifold NPT (National Pipe Thread) or BPS (British Standard Pipe)?

The TESTKIT has a 1" Male NPT outlet which connects directly to the manifold's shut-off ball valve
