Chicago Fittings Corporation is an industry leader that manufactures specialty joining methods for a number of markets, including natural gas and propane.
Natural Gas and Propane Gas systems should have as few joints as possible and, more importantly, those joints should be located above ground wherever possible. The X-Riser® with an integral service head adapter accomplishes both of these criteria. The use of an X-Riser® removes a minimum of two below grade joints per riser when compared to that of a standard pigtail style anodeless riser. In addition, those joints buried below ground are now moved to a single above grade joint, eliminating the risks and liabilities associated with below grade joints.
With the use of the X-Riser® system, gas is distributed from main to meter, meter to appliance, or propane tank to house with a solid (jointless) underground pipe. Combining this philosophy with the long list of features and benefits of the Sealastic® sealing technology makes the X-Riser® the most reliable, safest, and most cost effective method for gas piping systems.
Chicago Fittings provides a wide variety of transition fittings for the natural gas market. The Sealastic® design technology is the simplest, safest, and most robust design in the industry. The philosophy of this design is to greatly reduce/eliminate installation errors and reduce installation time. With features such as integral stiffeners, a bi-directional seal/ferrule assembly that can’t be installed improperly, and a “positive stop” or “bottoming” design that eliminates torque requirements, Chicago Fittings simply has the best products for your applications.
Chicago Fittings also manufactures a variety of transition fittings for the propane gas market. This includes risers, adapters, couplings, and numerous specialty items. Chicago Fittings puts a heavy emphasis on eliminating below grade joints in your system wherever possible. By using the X-Riser®, we remove the need for underground joints while boasting the simplest, safest, and most cost effective method in transitioning propane gas from tank to building, making us one of the most popular installation methods in the industry.
