Brass pipe fittings comprise threaded pipe connectors made of brass. Brass pipe connectors are broadly used in water supply networks, heating systems, compressed air and fuel systems. They are cast or machined. Working pressure from 10 bar up to several tens of bar.
The connectors are threaded with BSP female or female parallel threads, BSPT male taper threads. Leak tight connection is obtained on the threads (BSP female taper thread and BSPT male taper thread are engaged closely together). Thread sealant must be used (PTFE thread seal tape, liquid sealant).
The connection of BSP male thread with BSP female taper thread should not be sealed on the thread and usually demands applying a separate flat seal.
The range includes:
- various types of elbows with female and male threads;
- tees and crosses;
- air diffusers;
- muffs, adapters and reducing adapters;
- nipples – male connectors;
- blank plugs and caps;
- pipe unions and many other.
