What is Pipe Fittings?
Pipe fittings basically include the range of components that are used to connect pipe ends for in-line, multi-port, offset and mounting configurations. Pipe fitting cross sections are mostly, but not always, circular in shape to match with the pipe section with which they are connected. Pipes can be metallic or plastic and pipe fittings vary depending on the type of pipe used.
Pipe fittings are used for various purposes. They can be used to extend or terminate pipe runs, change a pipe’s direction, to connect two or more pipes and to change the pipe size.
