Cast iron pipe fittings are pipe fittings made from cast iron, a strong and durable material known for its high resistance to pressure and heat. Cast iron pipe fittings are commonly used in plumbing, sewage, and drainage systems, as well as in industrial applications where strength and longevity are crucial.
Here are some common types of cast iron pipe fittings:
Cast Iron Elbows: Elbows are fittings with a curved shape used to change the direction of the pipe. Cast iron elbows are available in different angles (e.g., 90 degrees or 45 degrees) to accommodate specific plumbing or piping requirements.
Cast Iron Tees: Tees have a T-shaped design and are used to create a branch connection in a pipe system. Cast iron tees allow for the diversion of flow or the connection of additional pipes.
Cast Iron Couplings: Couplings are used to join two pipes of the same diameter together. Cast iron couplings have female threaded ends on both sides to facilitate a secure connection.
Cast Iron Flanges: Flanges are flat, circular fittings with holes for bolting to other flanges or equipment. Cast iron flanges are commonly used for connecting pipes to valves, pumps, or other components in a piping system.
Cast Iron Reducers: Reducers are fittings used to transition between pipes of different diameters. Cast iron reducers are used when there is a need to connect pipes of different sizes in a plumbing or piping system.
Cast Iron Caps: Caps are used to close off the end of a pipe. Cast iron caps provide a protective cover to prevent debris or dirt from entering the pipe.
Cast iron pipe fittings are known for their durability, resistance to corrosion, and high pressure-bearing capabilities. They are often used in underground or buried applications, as well as in commercial and industrial settings. However, it's important to note that cast iron fittings can be heavy and may require proper support and handling during installation.
