Thread lock and filler

Post  lynnr on Thu 14 Jul 2011, 12:55 pm

Hi All

What is everyone using for locking their studs into the boiler with?

I do not think PTFE tape is any good at the boiler temp's as I think it melts. I may be wrong.

PTFE will not melt. I use it on oil fired boilers all the time around the burner not just water connections. A very good product is heldite. Hope this helps
