Have you gotten all of the fittings that you need for your project? While the tanks are important and absolutely necessary, it’s very important to have the proper pipe fittings as well. We ensure that all of our fittings are stainless steel and sanitary for your usage. You will be able to keep these pieces for a very long time and they will provide excellent control of your equipment as you organize the direction and flow of the liquids. Throughout this article, we are going to analyze the different pieces that we offer and explain what they are used for. If you have any questions, hopefully, this can provide some insight. However, if you feel that you still need to speak with one of our representatives, you can reach us through our contact listing below.
What Fittings Are There?
We are going to go over the options that we sell and explain their uses. Many of these stainless steel fittings are very popular and can provide excellent service. If at any time you feel as though you might know which piece you need, we’ll be happy to get started. These options have all been made with stainless steel, and are approved and certified for sanitary usage. We are constantly working to improve our designs, and if you need a custom piece made, we may be able to provide service for you. Our custom options extend from our tanks and blanket almost all of our products.
This type of sanitary fitting will specialize in the redirection of fluids. When you apply it to a pipe and connect it with another, you will make an angular shift in the direction of the fluid. Our product line currently offers 45-degree and 90-degree angles for your elbow fittings and they will come in either ferrule or buttweld caps. This is usually a permanent coupling so its important to get the pieces that will last you the longest. Longevity is the biggest reason why we make our pieces with stainless steel.
If you have to split your pipe into a different location but don’t want to break the original flow, a Tee fitting may help. These are basically “T” shaped couplers that have three openings. Two of these openings are in line with one another and will represent the unbroken flow. The other opening is perpendicular to the others. They will allow a 90-degree break that can let the fluid leave the flow to another destination. This is important for multiple sourced tanks that need a connection from one main water line. Usually, these fittings are called “bullhead” for their overall shape.
There are some cases where the abrupt angles are going to cause too much pressure to the liquid. Some cases involve liquids that cannot experience this sort of pressure or else they will change form. This is a dilemma that is easily solved by the use of long bend fittings. Whenever you need to change direction but can’t make sharp turns, these long bend fittings will extend the length of the turn so that the curve is not so harsh. This will provide the same change in direction for the pipe but will not force as much friction or pressure on the fluid as it moves through.
The compression fitting for certain pipes was made of two components. There is typically an outer nut and an inner ring known as a ferrule. These compression guards will generally vary in shape but they are usually noted to have a ring with beveled edges that can protect from leakage and connect with many other pipelines.
What Is Tri-Clamp?
These are some of the most popular styles for process line equipment. It is necessary for many industries, including the food, beverage and pharmaceutical fields. They provide a sanitary way of connecting pipes with a leakproof, airtight hold. These are going to be the main components that come on all of our tanks. They are made of stainless steel to ensure the most sanitary connection that you could possibly receive.
When you need a gasket, it is usually for filling the space between two surfaces. This is done to prevent any sort of leakage between the two connections even under compression. A gasket can fill the extra space so that all of the empty space is not threatening the flow in the pipes. It can also compensate for smaller or larger surfaces that don’t connect perfectly. When interacting with different sized pipes and you don’t have the reducer to fit it, these gaskets can provide the solution you’re looking for as well.
When you are using the pipeline, there are chances that the piping may not always be the same size. In some cases, this can be a problem, especially if you don’t have a reducer. However, if you do have a reducer, you can apply this to one of the pipes and connect it to the other larger or smaller pipe in order to make it fit. This is done to ensure the seamless transition of fluids between different sized piping.
