Tee fitting

A tee fitting, also known as a T-fitting, is a type of pipe fitting that is used to create a branch connection in a piping system. It features a T-shaped body with three openings, allowing for the flow of liquid or gas to be diverted or combined at a 90-degree angle from the main pipeline.

Key features and benefits of tee fittings:

  • Branch connection: Tee fittings enable the creation of a branch in a piping system, allowing for the diversion or combination of flow from the main pipeline to a secondary line.
  • Flow control: Tee fittings can be used in conjunction with valves or other flow control devices to regulate the flow of media through the branch connection.
  • Material compatibility: Tee fittings are available in various materials, such as steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, and plastics like PVC and CPVC, ensuring compatibility with different piping systems and media.
  • Size range: Tee fittings come in a wide range of sizes to accommodate different pipe diameters, allowing for seamless integration into existing piping systems.
  • Connection types: Tee fittings can feature threaded, socket-weld, or slip-on connections, depending on the application and installation requirements.

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

  • Plumbing systems in residential and commercial buildings
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Industrial process piping
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic systems
  • Fire sprinkler systems
  • Irrigation and agricultural systems

The ability to create branch connections and control flow makes tee fittings an essential component in the design and construction of efficient and versatile piping networks.
