Steel Weld Spuds
Con-Tech’s air brake tank fittings are produced by our global contract manufacturing partners to consistently deliver a wide range of air brake tank fittings which meet the highest standards of precision component manufacturing. All air brake tank fittings are machined in a TS-16949 certified factory.
An air brake is a friction brake that stops a vehicle by using compressed air on a piston to apply pressure to a brake pad. Con-Tech air brake tank fittings have cold-formed steel weld spuds that are an integral part of the air reservoirs in truck and trailer braking systems. These steel weld flanges perform reliably on many well-known brands, including Freightliner and others.
Con-Tech’s resistance welded fittings are available in four sizes, with threads made to NPTF Dry Seal Thread standards and are stocked in volumes sufficient to ensure an uninterrupted supply. We stock our steel weld spuds in 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, and 3/4″ sizes.
