April '21 Update: HART announces expanded manufacturing capacity for Carbon Steel Industrial Unions! Class 3000 and 6000.

Hammer Lug Unions

Hart Hammer Blow Lug Union

Fail Safe Leakproof Reliability

At any pressure, HART O-Rings actually strengthen the seal rather than loosen it.

Static

The O-ring is fitted into a machined groove between the two halves of the union. When the halves are drawn together the O-ring compresses to an ovalized cross-section, forming a positive, resilient seal which serves to block the fluid, thus sealing even at low or no pressure.


Under Load

As pressure is increased the O-ring is forced to flow and is "squeezed" into the downstream side causing the O-ring to conform to the shape of the end, blocking the groove gap. The more the system pressure increases, the more effective the seal.


Straight-Away Breakout

The flat faced construction allows for slipping the component in and out without disturbing the surrounding tube or pipe sections. Pipe alignment is much easier with Hart Unions since it is unnecessary to spring the line during make-up or disassembly.

Specialty Orders

Specialty O-Rings also available. Inquire within.

Ordering

The charts below contain all the information necessary to place an order. Use the appropriate codes in the manner shown below.

Example: a Class 3000 Female Threaded 1" Union with Viton O-ring and 316 Stainless Steel Ends is coded as follows:


When a size reduction or change in material is needed, simply enter the Tailpiece code and then the Threadpiece code separated by a slash as shown below.

Example: A Dielectric Class 3000 Union with a Dielectric Coated A105 Carbon Steel Tailpiece that is 3/4" Female NPT, with a 304 Stainless 1/2" Male NPT Threadpiece, Teflon O-Ring, is coded as follows:

Hammer Lug Union Overview

Hart Industrial O-Ring Unions are engineered to provide 3000 lb. service and are the most popular union in the industry for general purpose applications. The flat face design provides turbulence free fit across seats. This design is ideal where piping requirements dictate the necessity of having a flat face seal to make and break the pipe line. Sockets are deep counter-bored for perfect alignment on pipe ends. Schedule 40 & 80 are standard but can be custom ordered to meet any schedule size. All HART Unions are made in the USA.
Standard O-Ring Union Features:

• Turbulence Free: All unions provide a turbulence-free fit across the seats
• O-Ring Isolation: The O-Ring seal is strategically located in the thread piece face reducing O-Ring media contact and added protection against abrasives and erosion.
• Precision Machined components: All unions are precision machined to provide high quality and fail-safe leak proof reliability.
• Interchangeable End Connections: Threaded, socket weld, and butt-weld ends are interchangeable. This feature reduces overall costs by eliminating unnecessary nipples, bushings, couplings and inserts.
• Material Versatility: Unions can be provided in all standard metals or combination of metals. This includes 304 Stainless, 316 Stainless, A 105 Carbon Steel, Brass, Monel 400, Hastalloy, and Titanium.
• Excellent vibration resistance: Seals will not loosen, even under extreme pressure and pressure surges.
