Screw in nipple? For leg bag emptier.

Postby funkykeyboard » 30 Sep 2017, 13:19

I got 1 of these from eBay,
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V-DC-1-4-2- ... Ciid%253A1
and in that whole I want to screw in a nipple that you can plug a tube onto. What are they called so I can do a search on eBay please?

Done this before, but improved it now. When I have all the parts list down pat, I will do a description on here how to create this. Because, all the ones I have seen our 200 or £300 et cetera, and off the top of my head this should be no more than 30 quid.

Any advice appreciated, Tremulous Tetra. :-)

The first one was the correct 1/4 npt on the link above.
You need the correct tube size too. So probably 6mm or 1/4?

If you look around these are available in nylon, abs, etc too. More suitable for urine...

If you look for 1/4npt to fuel or oil hose you will find lots of choice, some from the US, for example:

Remember that urine isn't just water - make sure the valve material is compatible with it and not going to get corroded... (I'd be more inclined to look for something in either stainless steel or plastic, as aluminum tends to corrode pretty easily...

Also keep in mind the need to be careful about infection prevention / control, you don't want the valve to become a reservoir for bacteria that could travel back up the system and give you a UTI...

Presumably you'd want to be able to flush the system out periodically with bleach if nothing else - and I know bleach and aluminum don't get along well, at least they don't in the world of swimming pools...

Good job on that solenoid operated opener. I can manage manually emptying my leg bag by the flip valve. Here's the bag I use:

I wear the bag on my upper thigh with a length of 3/8" flexible tubing connected to the flip valve. The tubing runs down to my footplate. I can open/close the valve thru my pants.

Since I am constantly forgetting to drain urinal how about a bluetooth connection to a GPS app on my cell phone that opens the pinch valve when I am in the field out back. :geek: If you make it and get it approved for Medicare you could charge $950. czy

Or a sensor that beeps when pressure exceeds say .5psi or whatever.

NICE John. But at my age I'd be saying "what's that beeping sound?" :?

OK... Connect sensor to one of those dog collars that gives the dog a shock to control it.

Wire sensor to the button on the remote controller, and leave it fixed under the chair.

Put it on your wife as a reminder. She will then tell you when the leg bags full without fail.

As I can see, model of my pinch valve is Bio-Chem 100P2NO24-06S 24 VDC, 1/4” I.D., 3/8” O.D.

I've found my on ebay. It's important to find 1/4” I.D., 3/8” O.D. which is I think the biggest bio-chem valve. Because of orifice flow.

I've found some pdf http://www.westernanalytical.com/pdf/POWER%20Valve%2002-11-08.pdf so you can see the sizes of the valves. I dont't know can it be ordered from their site.

for example here is one, but listing has ended.
