What are Pipe Fittings? Where Are They Used?
Pipe fittings are used to connect pieces of pipe together. Pipe fittings connect to pipes in one of two ways: by threads or by slip fit. Metal pipes are threaded, while plastic pipe can be threaded or slip fit. As the names indicate, threaded pipes screw together to connect, while slip fit pipes use sleeves that slip into one another. They are organized by male and female connectors.
Stainless Steel Pipe fittings could be produced in both casting and forging methods. Considering the high tooling cost of forging, to be more cost effective, casting is perferred when the quantity is small. Stainless steel casting could be used to produce different types of pipe fittings in small runs.
In order to screw the pipe fittings to another piece, cast stainless steel pipe fittings need to be further machined for threads.
