Contractors who are looking to save time as well as money while installing and repairing a piping system must use a simple solution: Press fittings. With the help of press fittings, pipes can be connected within seconds as compared to the old traditional methods like welding, brazing and soldering. Stainless steel pipe fittings are an excellent choice that can be used in a variety of applications. Rhinox manufactures SS fittings using the finest grade 316 L stainless steel.
Applications of Press Fittings
1. Chemical Lines
Stainless steel fittings resist chemicals in an effective manner. This way it helps the industries in a good manner. The stainless steel pipes and press fittings are approved to be utilized in piping systems that are known to carry highly corrosive chemicals like phosphoric acids and nitric acids. As there is no need for heat and flame when pipes are connected using press fittings, the hazard of exposing the industrial chemicals to the flame and heat is eradicated.
2. Heating and Cooling Systems
When it comes to hydraulics, press fittings play a significant role. Press fittings can be utilized with cold water and heat applications as well. Stainless steel pipe fittings are approved to be utilized in applications related to cooling as well as heating. Hence, press fittings allow you to provide a customized solution on the basis of the needs and requirements of your customers.
3. Gas Lines
Press fittings can also be used in gas lines as well as compressed air systems. On the basis of the type of gas, you can promptly install the gas lines with the help of ss fittings. Once the entire system is installed appropriately, press fittings help in yielding a pipe connection which is air-tight. As compared to brazing, soldering and welding, press fittings can install the leak-free gas lines within a fraction of time.
4. Potable Water System
Stainless steel pipe fittings that are certified lead-free by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) are an excellent choice to be utilized in portable water systems. No matter if you have a residential plumbing project in hand or large-scale commercial project, press fittings are an appropriate and an ultimate choice. With the help of press fittings, contractors can easily install hot as well as cold potable water lines.
5. Lubricant Lines, Fuels and Oil
Mechanical and industrial operations can be run well and in an effective manner when the pipes are connected using press fittings. From fuels like butane, diesel, propane and kerosene to various heating oils, press fittings are considered as the safest option to be utilized with combustible substances.
