Common Sizes for Threaded Bronze Fittings
1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2", 3 ", 4"
These dimensions refer to the nominal size of the fitting, which is based on the inside diameter of the pipe or pipes the fitting is designed to connect to. The threads on the fitting are usually NPT (National Pipe Thread), which is a tapered thread that creates a tight seal when tightened.
It is worth noting that some fittings may have different dimensions, such as the length of the threaded portion or the overall length. It is important to select the correct size and type of fitting for your specific needs to ensure a safe, leak-free connection.
Notes on Threaded Bronze Fittings
Threaded bronze fittings are used to join pipes and pipes together in plumbing systems, and they have threads on the outside that allow them to be screwed onto matching threads on the pipe or pipe.
Bronze fittings are often preferred over other types of fittings because they are resistant to corrosion, which makes them ideal for use in environments with high humidity or exposure to chemicals. They are also resistant to high temperatures and pressures, which makes them suitable for a variety of applications.
However, it is important to note that threaded connections are prone to leaks if installed incorrectly or become damaged over time. Therefore, it is very important to use the correct tools and techniques when installing threaded bronze fittings to ensure a tight and secure connection.
Additionally, it is important to select the correct size and type of fitting for your specific needs to ensure compatibility with the plumbing you are using.
