I help you save water. I help make cleaning more efficient. I help keep your kitchen running. I help provide reliability you can trust. At T&S, we provide commercial plumbing equipment for hundreds of applications. It all started inside a small New York garage back in 1947. Today, we're a global brand serving markets around the world. Our customers know us as a family-owned and operated company, and we still go by the same trusted name. T&S Brass and Bronze Works. For more than 60 years, the story of T&S has been one of growth, expansion, and innovation. After inventing the market's first pre-rinse unit in 1947, T&S quickly established itself as the industry's premier manufacture of foodservice plumbing products. Over the next 2 decades, our company expanded into new commercial plumbing markets, leading founder George Tyson to purchase property in South Carolina to accommodate a new, 80,000 sq. ft. plant. As growth continued, T&S opened facilities around the globe, including another manufacturing facility in Sheung Hei, China, helping to shape the company into the truly international brand it is today. Our track record of innovations speaks for itself, but our reputation for service is what sets us apart. With more than 10,000 interchangeable parts and the ability to quickly handle custom modifications in house, the experts of T&S are proud to deliver real solutions to customers every day. At T&S, taking care of customers at every step is our number one priority. Maybe that means getting orders out the door fast with our 24 hour quick ship, or assisting with design and engineering. And with our state-of-the-art contact center, we work directly with each customer to find the right solution. It's what we're all about. Many customers know T&S for a few must-have products, but we actually manufacturer thousands of plumbing solutions for every corner of today's commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities.

We have 5 distinct inspection operations within our production process so each product is rigorously tested to ensure it's built to last. And, just as quality is a constant focus for our team, sustainability has become a leading consideration for customers, but that's hardly new to us. Whether it's pioneering low-flow faucets and fittings before they were widely used, implementing green operational practices, or making products made to last a lifetime, T&S has always been a leader in water and energy conversation, as well as responsible manufacturing. It has always been important to us, even if we didn't call it sustainability back then, all over our company, in all of our facilities, and in all of the products we offer, we build in the kind of efficiency today's market expects and demands.

T&S Sustainability Where Blue Meets Green

T&S Sustainability Where Blue Meets Green

T&S offers truly sustainable plumbing solutions. The need for water conservation is a growing concern, as water is a precious resource. Businesses use a great deal of water, as shown here in this chart. The restaurant industry, educational facilities, hotels, hospitals, offices, and supermarkets all consume vast amounts of water. To cite numbers, restaurants use 7,736 gallons per day; educational facilities use 37,761 gallons per day; hotels use 5,531 gallons per day; hospitals use 47,250 gallons per day, offices use 27,675 gallons per day; and supermarkets use 7,703 gallons per day. That's a lot of water! Even so, these businesses are doing their part to conserve, and T&S has a way to help. It offers products for plumbing that are LEED certified and great for new constructions and renovations. Plumbing fixture fittings can even contribute to up to 4 LEED categories, including water efficiency, materials & resources, innovation, and regional priority. For the most point-earning power, choose low-flow products from a responsible manufacturer. T&S creates sustainable solutions with beneficial alliances and responsible manufacturing, where all corrugation, plastic shrink wrap, trays, and office paper are recycled and where 100% of the polishing dust is collected and re-purposed. Nearly 9,000 gallons of coolant is even recycled annually. Plus, 6% less electricity is consumed through new lighting, heating, and cooling efforts. Smart low-flow products include spray valves, aerators, sensor faucets, metering faucets, and ceramic faucets. T&S offers options to match flow rates with tasks and to eliminate waste. Saving water helps the planet and saves money. The cost of water, the cost of energy to heat the water, and the cost of sewage to dispose of the water is expensive. Small changes can add up. Reliable T&S products last for years, and fewer product replacements mean less waste. With T&S, you can enjoy a lower total lifecycle cost and more money in your pocket.

T&S Safe-T-Link Appliance Connectors

T&S Safe-T-Link Appliance Connectors

A chef is as prepared as his tools, and something as out of the way as a gas hose can make the difference between success and failure. An improperly installed gas hose can mean poor performance, unnecessary replacement, or even the risk of gas poisoning and death. Not such a an insignificant part of the kitchen, after all. T&s gas hoses begin with a hydro-formed inner core which provides both strength and flexibility. The core is covered with a high quality stainless steel braiding and then with a thick, extruded coating for added cleanliness. One of the main strains on gas hoses comes when the unit it's connected to is pushed back towards the wall. A typical gas hose will twist or kink with the strain, and repeated stress or even one stressful push can tear the hose material near its end fitting. Kinks in the hose can also restrict gas flow, meaning unpredictable cooking conditions, or even unusable cooking conditions. Another significant strain for a gas hose is the stretch it experiences when the unit is pulled away from the wall. Without a restraining cord or simply with careless staff pulling too far on the unit, the hose can be strained and experience the same risk of damage at its ends. Safe-T-Link connectors are designed to work together with our exclusive Swiv-a-Link, the ultimate connector accessory for gas hoses. Swiv-a-Link adds a swivel to each end of the hose, enabling it to turn from side to side without kinking. Swiv-A-Link can snug a hose closer to the wall without restricting its gas flow, a closer fit means additional kitchen space for more important things, like cooking. Swiv-A-Link also provides the most reach for your gas hose, in addition, our patented swivel design can't lock up unlike some of our competitors. Since Safe-T-Link is available in a variety of lengths and diameters for increased BTU capacity, there are plenty of options to meet the needs of your kitchen environment. Installing a Safe-T-Link is fairly simple but keep in mind that the dangers of working with gas should guide you carefully through the process. First, make sure the manual gas shut off valve is turned to off. If you can't find the shut-off valve, turn off the main gas supply valve. Never proceed unless you are sure the gas is turned off. Look at your insulation space to see how the appliance connection will match up with the gas supply line. If both are more than 18" above the floor, use a vertical loop. If both are low, use a horizontal loop. If one of the connections is higher than the other, use a combination loop, turning the hose to accommodate the height distance. Now, ensure the 2 ends of the hose will be offset from each other. This offset ensures that the hose, with Swiv-A-Link installed, will be able to turn to fit snugly against the wall. If your connections are not off set, you will need to install an elbow on the supply line to create one. Then, prepare the gas supply side. If the connection is already male, apply Teflon tape or pipe joint compound to its threads. If the connection is female, apply Teflon or pipe joint compound to the nipple and thread that into the connection. Next, install the Swiv-A-Link. Apply Teflon or compound to the male threads of the fitting and threading it into the assembly you've been working on. Then, move to the appliance side. Apply sealant and thread the male end of other Swiv-A-Link fitting into the elbow and tighten it. Attach the Safe-T-Link gas hose to each Swiv-A-Link and tighten. Check that all connections are tight and perform a leak test. Then, ensure that your Safe-T-Link is appropriately marked. To fix the notice label to the back of the appliance and the yellow label to the wall near the shut-off valve. Finally, and this is an important step, attach the restraining cable to the wall and to the appliance you've just installed. Adjust its length so the Safe-T-Link can never be fully extended.This cable will keep your gas hose performing for a long life without unnecessary strain. Congratulations, you've just installed the finest gas hose available. Treat it well and the T&S Safe-T-Link and Swiv-A-Link will keep your kitchen appliances well fueled for years and years to come.
