About Black Schedule 80 Pipe Fittings

Schedule 80 black pipe fittings are components used in plumbing, gas, and industrial systems, designed specifically for applications that require higher pressure handling compared to standard Schedule 40 fittings.

The term "Schedule 80" indicates a specific wall thickness and pressure rating for pipes and fittings. In the case of black pipe fittings, Schedule 80 versions are constructed with thicker walls, enabling them to withstand elevated pressure levels and harsher conditions.

Similar to Schedule 40 black pipe fittings, these Schedule 80 fittings are made from black steel or iron, which is coated with a protective layer of black iron oxide to prevent corrosion. These fittings include elbows, tees, couplings, unions, caps, nipples, crosses, and other types, providing options for connecting and joining sections of black steel pipes.

Schedule 80 black pipe fittings are often used in industrial settings, high-pressure hydraulic systems, chemical processing plants, and applications where the system operates under increased pressure or in environments with more demanding conditions. Their robust construction and thicker walls make them suitable for withstanding higher pressures and ensuring system integrity in challenging environments.
