Titanium Pipe Fittings Info
  Titanium Pipe Fittings  

If you've ever had to replace the U-turn or "trap" under the bathroom sink, build your own sprinkler system, or run water or gas lines to install a washer and dryer, chances are you’ve already dealt with pipe fittings. Pipes are assembled together with the help of pipe fittings. Pipe fittings allow the lines to run around a corner, under a house, over a ceiling, or anywhere else you need them to go. For example, if a pipeline has to be laid around a corner, the pipe is cut just short of the corner and a 90-degree elbow fitting is placed at the end of the pipe. It allows pipes to be securely connected at both ends, providing a clean turn.

Pipe fittings connect to pipes in one of three ways: by threads, slip fit or welds. Metal pipes are threaded or welded together, while plastic pipe can be threaded or slip fit. As the names indicate, threaded pipes screw together to connect, while slip fit pipes use sleeves that slip into one another. Pipe fittings are organized by male and female connectors. Male threaded means that the threads are exterior, made to screw into the inside of a larger diameter pipe end with internal threading. Female threads are interior, made to receive male threaded pipe fittings. A male slip fit has no threads and is made to slip into a slightly larger female sleeve while a female slip fit is made to receive a narrower male slip fit. The ends of pipe fittings are slightly larger than the rest of the pipe to accommodate connections without narrowing the inside diameter of the pipe, thus keeping the flow consistent.
