Several pipes and tubing sections are needed to be connected with one another for the system to work effectively in a plumbing system. This objective is satisfied by pipe fittings, which are used for connecting taps or showers as well as connecting pipes of various shapes and sizes. Brass Pipe fittings come in a wide range of shapes and thread sizes to connect, adapt, or control any liquid or gas in pipes.
CP Brass Fittings also used in chemical, electrical and mechanical industries for various purposes. The fittings made from a different material has its own properties, features, and advantages. In this post, we will learn about the basics of CP brass fittings, its types and benefits.
Different Types of CP Brass Fittings –
1. CP Extension, HEX Nipple –
A nipple is a fitting that consists of short pieces of pipe with a male-threaded at each end that are used for connecting straight pipe runs.
The length of the nipple is normally indicated by the overall length with thread. Nipple with a hexagonal section in the middle for a wrench to grasp is referred to as a “HEX Nipple“.
2. Brass/Bush, PEX M/Adapter
Bushings are used to join pipes of various sizes, by typically reducing a larger fitting to a smaller pipe.
It is very useful for industrial works of pipes. It works similar to nuts and bolts and is available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
Brass bushing has anti-rust properties and anti-friction properties when in contact with steel. A rubber seal is set on the inside part of the bushing to prevent water leakage. This seal permits a minute amount of fluid to leak through to lubricate the bushing.
3. Shower / Shattaf Hose
Shower/Shattaf Hose is made of steel and brass which is rust & Corrosion resistant.
Shower hoses are mainly used to connect the shower valve to the shower head.
It has double interlock properties and it won’t bend or kink.
All shower hoses look the same at first sight, but when observed nicely the cones on the ends are actually slightly different and this can affect how the hose fits inside the bracket or riser. A poor fit shower hose could cause the shower head to turn or slip during showering, which can be very risky.
So, always inspect hose completely before buying.
4. Mixer Hose & Cp Smooth Flexible
A hose is a flexible tube which is designed to carry fluids from one place to another. Hoses are also sometimes called pipes but the only difference is that the pipe usually refers to a rigid tube, whereas a hose is usually a flexible one.
