To appropriately select the fitting, you must first understand the many types of joints available and which one best solves the connection issue.

However, you must also consider other factors such as the type of material, the size, and the method of screwing or assembling it.

Sanitary PVC: These pipes are grey or white in color and are used to link the pipes that convey sewage or sanitary liquids. Adhesives are required for your joints. More information is available in the PVC Sanitary Pipe Guide.

Ductile Iron Saddles Malaysia come in blue or green (irrigation) and are used to deliver cold water in drinking water and irrigation systems. Their joints are formed with a material-specific glue. The PVC Hydraulic Pipe Guide contains more information.

CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) is a white plastic material that is used to convey hot and cold water in home drinking water systems. They can have a bronze thread on the inside to connect to current copper systems, or they can be smooth to connect with a particular adhesive. More information is available in the CPVC Pipe Guide.

Threaded polypropylene is a type of polypropylene that comes in white or grey and is used to transmit hot and cold water. They have a thread or thread union system that allows them to make rapid and secure connections without the use of glue or welding. The Threaded Polypropylene Pipe Guide contains more information.

Polyethylene, often known as plansa, is a black plastic that is utilized in irrigation systems.

PPR stands for Polyethylene Random and is used to transmit hot, cold, or hot water. It comes in green or white. Heat is employed to fuse their unions together. More information is available in the Random Polyethylene Pipe Guide.

Copper is utilized in residential and industrial buildings to transmit hot and cold water, gas, and steam. For their connection, torch welding should be employed. More information is available in the Copper Pipes Guide.

Measure

Fittings, like pipes, have a measurement that correlates to their diameter, which must match the diameter of the pipe to which they will be connected. It can be measured in millimeters or inches.

There are fittings with multiple measurements because they are used to join pipes of different diameters, such as a Tee or reduction, among other things.

Thread

Because there is an exterior thread (HE) and an inner thread (IT) in screw-in fittings, you must fix it at the place where the thread is (HI). To screw the two components together, the pipe must be HE and the fittings must be HI, or vice versa.

Verses

It’s made to join two pipes of the same or different diameters in a straight line. They bring the thread inside with them. Welding, mechanical tightening, or glue are used to link them.

Nipples

It serves the same purpose as a couplet, except the thread is carried on the outside. Welding, mechanical tightening, or glue are used to link them.

Reduction or reduction coupler is a term used to describe a device that reduces

It’s a couplet that reduces the diameter of one pipe while increasing the diameter of another.
