Double branch fitting

Double branch fitting

A double branch fitting, also known as a double tee or a cross tee, is a type of pipe fitting that allows for the connection of two branch pipes to the main pipeline. It features a T-shaped body with four openings, enabling the flow of liquid or gas to be diverted or combined in two different directions from the main pipeline.

Key features and benefits of double branch fittings:

  • Multiple branch connections: Double branch fittings enable the creation of two branch connections in a piping system, allowing for the diversion or combination of flow from the main pipeline to two secondary lines.
  • Compact design: By combining two branch connections into a single fitting, double branch fittings help minimize the space required for piping installations and reduce the number of fittings needed.
  • Material options: Double branch fittings are available in various materials, such as steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, and plastics like PVC and CPVC, to suit different piping systems and media compatibility requirements.
  • Size range: Double branch fittings come in a range of sizes to accommodate different pipe diameters, ensuring proper fit and connection within the piping system.
  • Connection types: Double branch fittings can feature threaded, socket-weld, or slip-on connections, depending on the application and installation requirements.

Double branch fittings find applications in various industries and systems, including:

  • Plumbing systems in residential and commercial buildings
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
  • Industrial process piping
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic systems
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • Irrigation and agricultural systems

The ability to create multiple branch connections in a compact design makes double branch fittings a valuable component in the design and construction of efficient and space-saving piping networks.
