Fittings & Tubing
Fittings and tubing play a crucial role in fluid systems, enabling the secure and efficient transport of liquids or gases in various industries. Fittings are connectors that join different sections of tubing or piping, ensuring leak-proof connections and facilitating fluid flow. They come in a wide range of types, including compression fittings, threaded fittings, and push-to-connect fittings, each designed for specific applications and installation requirements.
Some common types of fittings include copper fittings, iron pipe fittings, PVC fittings, galvanized fittings, welding fittings, dielectric unions, Victaulic fittings, and nylon fittings. These fittings are designed to connect and secure different types of tubing or piping materials, such as copper tubing, aluminum tubing, PVC fitting , vinyl tubing, pneumatic tubing, Gastite tubing, and TracPipe tubing. They provide reliable connections that can withstand various flow rates and pressures.
In addition to fittings and tubing, other components like insulation, pipe clamps, pipe hangers, and pipe insulation are also important in fluid systems. Insulation helps in maintaining the desired temperature of the fluid and prevents heat loss or gain. Pipe clamps and hangers provide support and secure the piping system, while pipe insulation helps in reducing heat transfer and condensation.
Overall, fittings and tubing together form a versatile and essential component of fluid systems, allowing for precise control, distribution, and direction of fluids. Whether in plumbing, hydraulic systems, pneumatic systems, or HVAC/R applications, these components ensure the reliable and efficient functioning of fluid systems.
