Excerpt from Catalogue of High Pressure Hydraulic Fittings and Other Flanges
In the following pages it has been our aim to place before the hydraulic engineering world particulars of our well-known "Tight Joint" and its adaptation to fittings and flanges specially designed to suit their needs.
We are glad to be able to report that engineers can now procure fittings and flanges that will insure their being able to make tight joints, and that the trouble and annoyance of leaky joints they have heretofore had to contend with, can be obviated by the use of our specialties.
For the compiling of the "Information for use in designing Hydraulic Plants" we are indebted to Mr. John Platt, the well-known high pressure hydraulic engineer, of 97 Cedar St., New York City. Much of the information is taken from notes collected by him, both in this country and while associated with Mr. James Platt, Member of Council of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, who has done so much to further the development of high pressure hydraulic machinery. A number of the tables have been specially compiled and others taken from Mr. William Kent's "Mechanical Engineer's Pocket Book," Mr. Henry Adams's "Hand-book for Mechanical Engineers." and other engineering note-books.
We trust that the information given will be found of benefit to those who undertake the designing of hydraulic machinery, and we shall be glad if its users will kindly draw our attention to any errors of omission or commission, and also make any suggestions that may tend to make the "Information" more valuable.
