About Black Merchant Steel Couplings
Black merchant steel couplings are commonly used to join two pieces of steel pipe together. They are made from black carbon steel, which is a durable and strong material that is resistant to corrosion.
Merchant couplings are designed for use with Schedule 40 steel pipe and are threaded on both ends, allowing for easy installation and removal. They are typically used in low-pressure applications, such as water supply and drainage systems.
To install a black merchant steel coupling, the threaded ends of the coupling are screwed onto the ends of the steel pipes. A pipe wrench is usually required to tighten the coupling onto the pipe.
Overall, black merchant steel couplings are a cost-effective and reliable solution for joining steel pipes in low-pressure applications.
