Pipe Reducers

Pipe reducers are tube fittings that are widely used in a number of industries in order to providing greatest connection flexibility in connecting fractional tubes in various installations. Pipe reducer is a kind of pipe fitting that joins two pipes of different diameter. The pipe reducers are available in a range of materials depending on the end use of the products and these fittings are manufactured in inch and metric size.

Pipe reducers are special type of tube fittings that are commonly used in the demanding environments of chemical and power plants. They provide a highly reliable, sturdy and tight integral line system and these type of pipe fittings remain unaffected by shock, vibration or thermal distortion. These pipe fittings are very easy to install and they resist leakage due to thermal or pressure cycling. These reducers are sometimes chrome or nickel coated to prevent corrosion and increase the life of the product.

Materials used:
Various materials are used in the making of pipe reducers. Some of the common materials are as follows:
  • Stainless steel
  • Carbon steel
  • Alloy steel
  • Alloy titanium
