The connection between two pipes or diverting the fluid direction is possible due to the fittings. However, there are different range of fittings such as elbow, union, cross, couplings, reducer, concentric reducer, eccentric reducer, adapter, and connector. Elbow provides a change in 45 or 90 degrees to the fluid inside the pipes. However, elbows are used for connecting the same diameter of pipes. And to connect the different sizes of pipes, the reducer is used. On the other hand, the coupling is used for connecting the broken pipes. However, the slip coupling is used to connect long length pipes whereas compression coupling connects the broken pipe of smaller lengths. The fittings are capable of providing a safe connection to the pipes. Therefore, they are used in industries such as chemical processing, food processing, marine industries, petrochemical, pharmaceuticals, boiler and furnace, transportation and pumping systems.
The Inconel 625 is a niobium, molybdenum, and chromium alloy. This elemental combination infuses serious demanding properties to the fittings. Therefore, our fittings can work under severe high temperature, oxidation, carburization, and corrosive environments. They are however widely used in seawater applications because they are free from local attacks. Their high corrosion and fatigue strength is also an impressive quality. Their use in advanced reactors is possible due to their strength to work under elevated temperatures such as 1200-1400 degrees Fahrenheit.
