Boss Ground Joint Couplings
An all purpose coupling, the female ground joint consists of a MALE STEM, WING NUT and FEMALE SPUD. The female spud has NPT threads to accept the NPT threads of a rigid connection or male NPT nipple.Widely used for air, water or steam, the ground joint is secured with an interlocking clamp. By replacing the female spud of a ground joint coupling with a double or male spud, hose to hose ground joint connections or hose to rigid connections are simplified. Double spuds for hose to hose connections are threaded NPS MALE X NPS MALE. (GJ wing nut is also NPS). For hose to rigid connection, the male spud is threaded NPS MALE X NPT MALE.
