The new IMPACT SOCKET from Emjay® is designed to accommodate the needs of users of impact sprinklers placed on top of standpipes or risers.
This socket is currently available in 1/2″ and 3/4″ BSP.
It is an interrupted socket which is designed with a thicker than normal “landing area” between the two tapered threads to ensure that the impact sprinkler’s rotating seals do not touch the top of the riser.
The riser side of the Impact Socket is shorter than the impact side to allow for thread length difference between various manufacturers of impact sprinklers.
The interrupted thread ensures that the riser and sprinkler do not touch and prevent the sprinkler from rotating, even if the riser is over-tightened. The landing area between the threads will prohibit this from happening.
The EMJAY® Impact Socket is made from high grade engineering polypropylene and has added UV stabilisers to counteract the effect of the sun’s harmful UV rays..
