Pipe Coupling Components

Pipes play a very important role in any installation. The quality of their joints is especially important. The method of joining itself depends on what material the pipe is made of. The most common methods include: pressing, screwing, threading or using adhesive systems. Most connections are permanent, while others can be repeatedly connected and disconnected. It is very important to use high quality pipe joining components.

Pipe joining elements: characteristics

Pipe joining elements are mainly: brass fittings, steel fittings, fittings for flexible pipes, fittings for rigid pipes, angle fittings, elbows, or fittings for pipes with a crimp ring. All of these, including items such as casing pipe fittings guarantee mechanically durable and leak-free connections. Special fittings for corrugated pipes are also available. They have additional laths, responsible for high mechanical strength. They can be fitted with a watertight seal. Universal pipe couplings provide a press-fit connection between two pipes. Their simple construction allows to connect two different types of pipes, for example corrugated and thick-walled. The strongest couplings are the couplings for RHDPEp culvert pipes, thick-walled. They provide a sand-tight connection between two thick-walled pipes with the highest mechanical resistance.

Very often high-pressure couplings are used, which have a crimping ring, responsible for double crimping on the pipe. Pipe connectors can be used in various fields of industry, especially pneumatics and hydraulics. All connecting elements are available in a wide range of dimensions and threads. This enables them to be used in a wide variety of applications for connecting rigid pipes with external diameters ranging from 4 to even 42 millimetres. The couplings are made from galvanised steel or stainless steel in accordance with the requirements of the European market. The category of joints in this range may include: threaded couplings, straight couplings, angle couplings, reducing couplings, tees, fours and also supplementary accessories such as sleeves, rings and nuts.

On metric steel, copper, aluminum or plastic pipes, crimp rings are usually used. A steel pipe fitting may have an elastomer seal. Slip rings are useful during assembly, where the material enters the pipe as a sealing layer on one side and as a resisting surface on the other. This allows for optimal seating of the nut and connection of the couplings. Often these rings can be clamped by hand and there is no need for additional equipment.

Pipe Couplings: Creating Tight Connections

Pipe fittings can be used to make tight connections. Commercially available coupling and pipe systems in combination with reliable accessories allow for excellent performance. The most commonly used is universal technology, dedicated to different materials. Compression joints are highly compatible, which means that they can be connected with any elements. The universal design of the connectors means that there is no need to buy any additional parts for them. In the future you will also not have to worry about the fact that welding, threading, welding or gluing is necessary. Compression connections extremely reduce the time spent on installation, due to the fact that you only need to perform such tasks as: cutting the pipe to size, gradation of edges, marking on the pipe the depth of insertion into the fitting and crimping by pressing with a crimping machine. Fittings are usually made of copper with bronze threads, which provides the connection with resistance to the conditions in which the installation will operate. Bronze can withstand considerable loads and increases the corrosion resistance in the connector-pipe system by creating a protective cathodic layer on the inner surface of the pipe.
