Do you intend to use SS fittings for your project? Stainless steel is one of the best metals to use for any of your components because of its strength and versatility. It’s very resistant to some of the elements that can ruin other metals. This refers to water, oxygen and other materials that could be corrosive. Whenever you are building your system and need to have proper stainless steel fittings for your pipes or tanks, look into Cedarstone Industry! Our options are extensive, high-quality and very well priced. You can get the results you’re looking for, and also keep your parts safe and secure for the long term at the same time. We are going to depict our different options. Through this, we provide an analysis of what they can do and why our pieces are better. There are plenty of reasons so we want to be as concise as possible!
What Fittings Do We Offer?
In order to give you the best service, we want to ensure that you are aware of all we have to offer. If you didn’t know that we had the specific piece you were looking for, you may have ended up spending more time or money on parts that weren’t as good. This is something we hope to avoid at all costs. That’s why we’re showcasing these parts and explaining their quality.
Long Bend SS Fittings
When you have liquids or gases that are susceptible to pressure changes, then you will want to have piping that does not stress the substances. The may not react to the changes and could be ruined, or change form at the wrong times. This is an issue that can occur from using sharper angles for the pipe redirectors. When you are in need of a less intense shift in direction, long bend stainless steel fittings for pipes and tanks will provide that turn but with a softer touch. They will still provide a 90 or 45-degree turn, but since they are slightly longer, they offer less friction and pressure on the substance. This can be very beneficial for pressure sensitive projects.
Ferrule Cap SS Fittings
When you have to get a compressive fit for certain pipes, you will use a fitting that is made of two components. These are known as the outer nut and inner ring for a strong and leakless connection. We typically call these fittings ferrule caps. They have a ringed end with beveled edges. They will generally vary in size as well, but these compression guards are going to be great choices for your pipes as many different pipings use this fitting.
Elbow SS Fittings
When you need to redirect fluids but don’t require softer pressure, elbow fittings will do best. These are used for the pipeline that has to shift direction. Usually, they will come in one of two angular directions such as 45-degrees or 90-degrees. It will slightly resemble an elbow for this reason. Also, they will come in ferrule or buttweld caps that can connect with whatever piping you may have. Remember, these fittings are usually permanent when the couple the pipes. That is why it is imperative that you get our stainless steel fittings to ensure that they will last the longest.
Tee SS Fittings
For this stainless steel fitting, which is usually called a “bullhead” fitting, you can apply it in many circumstances. For example, it can be used if you are moving water or another fluid to one location, but have to move it to another destination as well. This is when you would apply the “T” shaped connector to the pipeline. Since it has three apertures, they can organize the flow of the stream without disrupting it. Typically they will split at a 90-degree turn that is perpendicular with the pipe. This is how the fluid will move from the original stream to its second location. This can be seen when using a watering system to get the water to the proper locations from one main source.
Reducers And Gaskets
Reducers are great options if you have to fit a pipe into a smaller pipe. The result is an adaptation from one size to fit the other. This is done with a reducer, which has one size on one side, and the other size is opposite to it. This will allow you to connect pipes that have totally different sizes. Usually, there would be a problem with leakage because of the size difference, but with reducers, you can ensure a seamless transition of the stream. There will be no problem with the flow because the reducer as essentially made the pipes the same size.
Gaskets, on the other hand, are meant for the pipes that have slight differences. For example, if you have a pipe that is perhaps an inch or half an inch different, then a reducer may not be needed. It is not drastic enough to warrant an additional piece so gaskets are used. This is where you place a ring into the pipe to close the extra space off. The final opening should be identical with the other pipe due to the gasket. It will ensure that the two connections are essentially leak-proof even when the pipes are dealing with high compression.
What Is Tri-Clamp?
Tri Clamps are among the most common types for machinery parts for a tank or piping system row. In many sectors, including our own tank industry, but also food, drink, and pharmaceutical sectors, this is essential. We use clamps on all of our tanks and storage units. They provide incredible sanitary benefits and keep the functionality clean and efficient. We also make them in stainless steel to ensure that they won’t even be able to rust. This way, they can be used for a very long amount of time without damage or degradation.
