Where to buy brass fitting?
Modern plumbing cannot do without special elements for connecting pipes, such as threaded fittings made of brass or steel. A distinctive feature from similar connection elements ( transitions, bends, flanges) is that the fittings use pipe threads cut on them and the ends of the pipeline to connect to each other (it can be both internal and external). If you need to install a sink mixer or mount steel, bimetallic or aluminum radiators, connect water supply and metal-plastic pipes , bring a fitting for an irrigation hose in the country or install an adapter nipple for a pump into a well - in all these cases you will need to buy a brass fitting .
Why are brass fittings so popular? Brass was already known to the ancient Romans, and largely due to the fact that it had a pleasant golden color, was easily processed and corroded a little (unlike iron), it was actively used in the production of decorative elements of internal and external landscaping, weapon trim elements and of course, in the form of connecting and shut-off valves (faucets and valves) for plumbing , where brass fittings only darkened in contact with water, acquiring over time the well-known noble shade. Today, despite the active promotion by manufacturers of cheap polymeric connection elements and metal-plastic pipes to the plumbing market, the number of people who want to buy brass fittings , such as American sgon, coupling, nipple, threaded transition, futorka, tee and elbow, remains significant due to technological properties of brass as a material.
brass fittings for pipes, such as: union nut connection. An important advantage of an American brass squeegee is that it can be used to connect devices with pipelines that require periodic dismantling and maintenance ( filters , pumps, etc.). As a rule, they have internal and external threads and can be manufactured structurally together with a ball craneallowing to block the duct when the pipeline is disconnected.
A brass connecting coupling with an internal thread is an example of a classic fitting for connecting pipes (devices) with external threads of the same diameter in water supply and heating systems using FUM tape or sanitary flax with sealing paste . In the case of connecting pipes of different diameters, a brass coupling is called transitional .
Brass elbows, tees and crosses , used to change the direction and branch the flow of pipeline medium, as a rule of the same diameter, have become quite widespread in the creation of water supply and heating systems in construction and production.
Somewhat less common are brass fittings in the form of a plug (plug), locknut, squeegee, various options for threaded transitions and fittings, however, their use gives considerable freedom when completing pipeline connections with various devices.
