How Much Do You Know About the Basics of Brass Fittings?

In a plumbing system, multiple pipes and pipe sections need to be connected to each other for the system to work efficiently. This purpose is achieved with pipe fittings, which are designed to connect straight pipe sections, as well as to connect pipes of different shapes and sizes. More and more types of fittings are used. Different types of accessories are required based on the field they will be used in. These accessories are made of various materials such as brass, stainless steel, aluminum, steel, alloy steel, plastic, etc. Each accessory made of different materials has its own characteristics, features and benefits. In this article, we'll discuss the basics of brass fittings.


1. The advantages of using brass material for brass fittings are as follows:


(1) It has high strength, good plasticity, can withstand cold and hot pressure processing well, and has excellent welding and corrosion resistance.


(2) Brass pipe fittings have extremely good plasticity and high strength, good machining performance, easy welding, and stable resistance to general corrosion, but are prone to cracking. It is the most widely used variety in ordinary brass. For complex cold and deep drawn parts, such as radiator housings, conduits, bellows, cartridge cases, gaskets, etc.


(3) The price is the cheapest, with high strength and hardness but poor plasticity, but it can still withstand pressure processing well in hot state, with average corrosion resistance, and other properties are similar to H62. For general machine parts, welded parts, hot stamped and hot rolled parts.


(4) It has good mechanical properties, good plasticity in hot state, good plasticity in cold state, good machinability, easy brazing and welding, corrosion resistance, but easy to produce corrosion cracking. In addition, the price is cheap, and it is a common brass variety that is widely used.


(5) Brass pipe fitting has high strength, toughness, good friction reduction, high corrosion resistance in the atmosphere and sea water, but have a tendency to corrosion and crack, and have good plasticity in hot state. For making structural parts that work under friction and seawater corrosion.


Brass fittings resist corrosion from water, heat, acids, minerals and peat soils. They are suitable for industrial and residential plumbing applications. Brass fittings are a blend of zinc and copper alloys and are considered the best source for ensuring durable plumbing fixtures from homes to large industrial complexes. Not to mention using safe and durable components in your plumbing system.


Flexibility and versatility are two key properties of brass fittings that make them ideal for use and offer a range of additional properties. They are available in a variety of shapes, widths and sizes, and come with accessories that allow you to change the pipe size. Buy brass fittings, choose Sanfitec!


2. Components required for brass fittings


(1) Coupling: A coupling is a component used to connect two pipes. You can get these components in different lengths and sizes.


(2) Nipple: A nipple is basically a tube. It is used to connect two fittings and is most often used in plumbing solutions. The assembly is made of copper or chlorinated polyvinyl chloride.


(3) Reducer: When you want to connect two pipes with different widths. In this case, use a brass tube reducer.


(4) Elbow: This part has the shape of a human elbow. It is used to change the pipe direction by 45° or 90°.


(5) Cross: As the name suggests, this component has a cross shape with four branches in opposite directions. One of the four crosses serves as the entrance, while the remaining three branches serve as the exit.


Pipes need to be disconnected during maintenance, fixtures or replacement. There is also a component for this purpose. Unions are components used to disconnect pipes when required for the above purpose.
