Threaded Pipe Fittings
Threaded pipe fittings are probably represent the oldest method of joining piping systems. Like Socket Weld Fittings, threaded pipe fittings are mainly used for small pipe diameters.Threaded piping is commonly used in low-cost, noncritical applications such as domestic water, fire protection, and industrial cooling water systems.Threaded pipe fittings are normally made of cast gray or malleable iron, cast brass or bronze or forged alloy and carbon steel.
Domestic Thread Fittings are made in USA with material that is melted, forged and machined by domestic manufacturers.
- A105 - The standard forged carbon steel piping components for ambient and high temperature / pressure systems (More Info)
- A20 - a "Super" stainless steels that was designed for maximum resistance to acid corrosion, cracking and pitting attack (More Info)
- SS304 - A common standard for stainless steel due to its malleability, high corrosive resistance weld-ability (More Info)
- SS316 - A molybdenum stainless steel that provides excellent tensile, creep and stress-rupture strengths at elevated temperatures (More Info)
