Pipe fitting is the occupation of installing or repairing piping or tubing systems that convey liquid, gas, and occasionally solid materials. Pipe fitting can come in several types of materials, including steel, copper, iron, aluminium, and plastic.
Pipe fittings are used in HVAC, manufacturing, hydraulics, refineries, nuclear-powered supercarriers, power plant construction, and other steam systems. Pipe fittings can be installed within homes and buildings, transport materials, and sewage systems.
Pipe fittings can be installed via weld-on or screw-on techniques. This variation makes them widely applicable for a range of uses. This also reduces construction time and overall installation cost. The quality of steel pipe fittings also improves the delivery of the liquid being transported. They are also corrosion resistant, which minimizes potential for product loss and saves money in the long run. This selection of steel fittings is a good resource when selecting corrosion resistant products, due to Process Pipe’s galvanising services. Stainless steel is smooth and low friction, so there is less energy loss when transporting products. Also, stainless steel is one-hundred percent recyclable and can be recovered or reused. Stainless steel fittings are durable, with their low interior surface friction, and remain stable at extreme temperatures.
