A Quick Question

Is Loctite 290 (or similar) acceptable on NPT at foreline pressures?
Some say the glass is half full. Others see it as half empty. I say it is twice as big as it needs to be.

Definitely.

Alternatively you can use Torr Seal (aka Hysol 1C) which is good to at least 10E-5.

Teflon tape usually works at foreline pressures.
