Pipe fittings are components that are used to connect pipe sections with other fluid control items such as valves and pumps to form pipelines. Fittings have a common connotation of being used for metal and plastic pipes that convey fluids. Sanjay Metal India is a leading Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings Stockist and Supplier in India. Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings are typically supplied with quick-connect clamps to permit line disassembly for interior cleaning in hygienic applications such as food and dairy processing. The flanges for these clamping systems are available as weld-on components or, in many cases, as wyes, tees, and other fittings with the flange built-in.
Pipe fittings, also known as pipe connectors, join two pipes in a plumbing system to prolong the run or alter the flow direction. They come in a range of sizes to fit the pipe they will connect and are used to combine, redirect, or lessen the flow of the water supply. The size of pipe fittings is critical, and there are size guidelines to follow. While the majority of fittings have the same size apertures on both ends, some are built with different-sized apertures to function as a transition from one pipe size to another. Pipe fittings come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The following is a list of pipe fittings that are often used in piping applications.
Elbow Pipe Fittings are used more frequently than any other pipe fitting. It allows you to modify the pipe’s direction with ease. The two most common kinds of the elbow are 90° and 45°. It can, however, be trimmed to any degree. Elbows Pipe fittings come in two different radius types: short radius (1D) and long radius (2D) (1.5D).
Tee Pipe Fitting distributes or collects the fluid from the run pipe. It’s a short segment of pipe with a 90-degree branch in the middle. The two forms of Tee utilized in pipes are equal / straight and reducing / unequal. The diameter of the branch in a decreasing tee is less than the diameter of the Run (Header) Pipe. The diameter of the branch in a straight tee is the same as the diameter of the Run (Header) Pipe.
There are three types of Coupling Pipe Fitting available;
For connecting small bore pipes, a full coupling is required. It was once used to join two pipes or a pipe to a swage or a nipple. Threaded or socket ends are available.
Small-bore branching from a vessel or big pipe is done with a half coupling. It can be either threaded or socketed. Only one side has a socket or thread end.
To join two different diameters of pipe, a reducing coupling is employed. It’s similar to a concentric reducer in that it keeps the centerline of the pipe while being compact.
A Nipple Pipe Fitting is a small stub of pipe with a male pipe thread on both ends or just one. It’s used to join two other fittings together. Pipe, hoses, and valves are all connected with nibbles. Low-pressure plumbing uses Nipple Pipe Fitting.
