Lokring Technology LLC, a leading provider of advanced pipe and tubing connector products for global fluid and gas transfer markets, announced today it has attained NSF 61 and NSF 372 certification for its line of stainless steel “PW” fittings and the facilities that manufacture them.

Already ASME B31 code qualified for use on 316 SS piping, the addition of NSF certification means these fittings can now be safely used in potable water applications in full compliance to the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act.
