Die electric pipe flanges for 2 1/2" copper X IPS, Need help.
I have to connect smaller copper to 2 1/2". There is a 4 bolt pipe flange I first thought was threaded on both sides. Hiding under the insulation on the copper side is a solder joint tailpiece coming out of the flange. The other flange is MPT with galv pipe screwed into it. A supplier described these as die electric pipe flanges. I need to reduce one to 2" and another to 1 1/2".
I was hoping to reuse the copper side of the flange connection as the pipe will probably be dribbling water as the flow would be held back by a 40 year old gate valve, making for a bad time soldering. Would consider a SS IPS flange if it would marry to the copper side.
Can't take anything apart until change over time...need to be ready at that time.
Is anyone familiar with this connection?
