Fittings And Their Applications In The Piping Industry

Pipe fittings remain one of the most integral parts of several manufacturing and processing industries. The following are a few varieties of pipe fittings that help in constructing a smoothly operating, leakage-free, durable, and optimal piping arrangement.

1. Elbows: Elbows find extensive use across industries for joining two pipes in different directions. Elbows of 45 or 90-degree angles are easy to find and help in changing the direction of the flow of liquids and gases through a piping arrangement. Therefore, many industries consider this variety of pipe spools a must for smooth operations.

2. Reducers: Reducers generally join two pipes with different diameters. In short, a pipe with a larger diameter gets attached to another pipe with a smaller diameter with the help of threaded or non-threaded reducers.

3. Couplings, Caps, Plugs, and Adapters: Couplings and adapters are typically used for joining two pipelines. Both varieties remain available in different shapes, patterns, and sizes. Plugs and caps are useful for blocking the end of a pipeline.

4. Unions: Featuring a nut, a male, and a female end, unions join the ends of two pipes to make them work as one. Much like elbow pipe fitting, this is also a pipe joining spool.

5. Crosses: Crosses also join pipes but in a different fashion. Crosses feature four (4) openings to facilitate a cross-design fitting.

6. Valves: Valves remain available in different sizes, shapes, and specificities to match the varying requirements of the industries. However, the primary task of these valves remains to control ( Open, close and regulate) the flow pressure of liquids and gases through a pipeline.

7. Outlets: Outlets are one of the most abundantly used pipe spools. One end of the outlets remains open while another remains attached to a pipe. The open end empties the liquid into a tank or cistern to which it remains burrowed.

8. Tees: Tees are particularly helpful in rerouting the flow of liquids or gases through a pipeline into two different channels. Industries using widespread piping arrangements use tees for joining the pipelines spread in different directions.

9. Flanges: Much like elbow pipe fitting, flanges find extensive application across industries. These fittings help extend the piping systems by joining pipes, pumps, and valves.
