Branch fitting

Branch fitting

A branch fitting is a type of pipe fitting that allows for the connection of a secondary pipe to the main pipeline. It is designed to create a branch or tee in the piping system, enabling the flow of liquid or gas to be diverted or distributed to multiple destinations.

Key features and benefits of branch fittings:

  • Flow diversion: Branch fittings allow for the splitting or redirection of flow from the main pipeline to one or more secondary lines, facilitating the distribution of fluids or gases to different parts of the system.
  • Versatile configurations: Branch fittings come in various designs, such as tees, wyes, crosses, and laterals, each suited for specific piping layouts and flow requirements.
  • Material compatibility: Branch fittings are available in a range of materials, including steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, and plastics like PVC and CPVC, ensuring compatibility with different piping systems and media.
  • Size options: Branch fittings are manufactured in various sizes to accommodate different pipe diameters, allowing for seamless integration into existing piping systems.
  • Ease of installation: Many branch fittings feature socket-weld, threaded, or slip-on connections, making installation quick and straightforward.

Branch fittings find applications in numerous industries and settings, such as:

  • Plumbing systems in residential and commercial buildings
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • Industrial process piping
  • Oil and gas pipelines
  • Irrigation and agricultural systems

The ability to divert and distribute flow makes branch fittings an essential component in the design and construction of efficient and reliable piping networks.
