  • These pipes can be used for higher pressures than those above, or for special working conditions with suitable types of joints.
  • The efficiency of taper/parallel screwed joints is highly dependant on the degree of care taken in assembly and jointing compound used.
  • Light pipes are not recommended for steam, air or gas services. Reference to steam service applies to saturated steam only.
