Greasing a Daniel Senior Fitting

Hello, I was wondering how much grease to put into a senior fitting? Is there a general amount per size or just until the chamber seals? I have senior fittings that range from 2" to 12". Thanks

  • Hi Cameron,
    The grease is used to assist the metal slide valve. If the slide valve assembly is not leaking, no additional grease is needed. The amount of grease needed to seal a fitting varies greatly with line size, the amount of grease already in the fitting and the condition of that grease. Typical users usually add 1 to 3 sticks when changing a plate.
