Types of Pipe Fittings

Nov. 03, 2023


Pipe fittings are used to connect and join different sections of pipe or tubing in various piping systems. They come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials to accommodate different applications. Here are some common types of pipe fittings:


1. Elbow:

Elbows are used to change the direction of flow between two pipes. They come in various angles like 45 degrees or 90 degrees.

2. Tee:

Tees are used to create branches in a piping system, allowing the flow to be split in multiple directions.

3. Reducer:

Reducers are used to connect pipes of different diameters. They can be concentric (maintaining the same centerline) or eccentric (offsetting the centerline).

4. Coupling:

Couplings are used to join two pipes of the same diameter. They can be either threaded or slip-on.

5. Union:

Unions are similar to couplings, but they allow for easy disassembly of the pipes for maintenance or replacement.

6. Cross:

A cross fitting is used when four pipes need to be joined at a single intersection point.

7. Cap:

Caps are used to close the end of a pipe. They can have either a threaded or a plain surface.

8. Plug:

Plugs serve a similar purpose as caps but are typically used for threaded connections.

9. Nipple: 

Nipples are short sections of pipe that have male threads on both ends. They are often used to extend a fitting or connect two female-threaded fittings.
