Types of fittings according to pipes and plumbing accessories The fitting is a metallic piece, used to link and connect pipes with each other and with other profiles that have a cylindrical shape. They are devices with specific characteristics and are part of the piping system itself. Furthermore, a234 wpb fittings are widely used in other areas such as bicycle frames, fire hoses, etc. Fittings according to the manufacturing material Commonly, the best-known fittings are carbon steel forged fittings, but we can also find some made of plastic. The manufacturing material also determines the use that can be given to the fitting: what type of fluid can be transported in it and what characteristics must the connection points of the tubes have. Metal Fittings Copper Fittings: They are used to meet the needs of carbon steel fittings. The connection can be by welding or thread and they are very common in installations due to their versatility. Copper systems can be used for cold or hot water distribution installations, heating installations, gas installations or solar installations. Steel fittings: Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings are used for different types of water installations and can be found with a layer of galvanized or stainless steel. Fittings according to types of union It should be noted that the design of the fittings includes different shapes that facilitate the distribution of the pipes. Among the designs are elbows, tees, three-piece links, straight links, pipe saving bridges, curved links, among others. The following pipe connection systems are the most used in various installations: • • • • • • Threading or thread system Welding for copper pipes Compression system for PE pipes Pressing system for multilayer pipes (press fitting) Adhesives for polypropylene pipes (PPR) alloy steel forged fittings In plumbing installations, the most common fittings are the a420 wpl6 fittings for multilayer pipes, polypropylene fittings, copper fittings by solder joint, brass pieces for threading and compression brass for PE pipes. On the other hand, in industrial installations the most widely used connections are hydraulic fittings, What can flanges be used for? The different types of flanges can have very varied uses, both at a business and domestic level. The most frequent use of traditional nylon cable ties is to group or fix several cables at the same time, preventing them from being loose. At certain times they can even be used as provisional handcuffs to detain a person. In the business and domestic sphere a350 lf2 flange are also often used as a seal to prevent the opening of boxes and even enclosures. And is that its holding power and ease of installation make them very versatile in all kinds of situations. The rest of the carbon steel flanges can also be used to hermetically close plastic bags or packaging, to fix decorations, signs, labels and even lighting; and even to fix cables in all kinds of vehicles, bicycles and motorcycles. So the uses of the flanges can be so varied that it is always advisable to have them close in any area.
