Converse Patent Lock Joint.

Fitted with

[graphic][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

This special pipe is weli adapted for the conveyance of water, gas or air, under either light or heavy pressure; is tested and guaranteed to stand 300 pounds. per square inch, and is thoroughly protected against corrosion or the action of any acids or alkalies found in nature.

It can be bent or roughly handled without cracks or injury and can be laid more RAPIDLY AND CHEAPLY than any other style of pipe; a great saving in FREIGHT being effected on account of its LIGHT WEIGHT. The great saving in FRICTION in this pipe enables SMALLER sizes to be used and equal results obtained, and a consequent saving in first cost.

The lengths average about 18 to 20 feet and require about one-half the quantity of lead per joint that cast iron does. The joint with the pipe has successfully stood an hydraulic pressure of over 1000 pounds per square inch in tests that have been made. Kalamein alloy imparts nothing injurious to water, and Kalamein pipe may be safely used to convey drinking water without any fear of contamination. This pipe recommends itself, through its many desirable features, to the consideration of all who contemplate using pipe for water or gas works. Information and prices promptly furnished. A complete line of Fittings, Valves, Hydrants, Tools etc., etc., are manufactured by us in connection with this pipe. This pipe is used in over 400 cities and villages in the United States; nearly 2000 miles having been laid in the past eight years.
