Materials used are as follows:
- Carbon steel
- Alloy steel
- Stainless steel
How to measure standard wyes?
To get the accurate measurement of standard wyes, calculate the dimensions of T, T1, M, N, P.
- Join pipes of different sizes.
- No interruption of flow path.
- Withstand acids, bases, and solvents.
- Withstand intermittent corrosive fluids in very high temperatures.
