The pipe fitting is a connecting part of the pipe for installing pipes and various materials for various purposes. Typically, fittings are required to connect pipes of different diameters, at the turns of the pipe or at the connecting branches.
However, in some cases it is necessary to use fittings on straight sections of the same diameter. For example, to extend it with the same pipe, or to create a plug connection. This section details what is a compression accessory. The components of the compression fittings, their design and installation will be described in detail.
Compression fittings are accessories for low pressure polyethylene (HDPE) tubes for copper and brass tubes. It is well known that compounds made from such fittings made of polymeric materials (polyethylene, polypropylene, etc.) have now become very popular because of their fast installation and reliable connection.
Compression fittings for plastic pipes can be reliably connected without the use of special welding equipment to connect the plastic pipes. The connection of the plastic tubes is simultaneously carried out in a blooming manner.
The advantages of compression fittings are simple and easy to install. There is no need to prepare the connecting pipe for installation. No special skills are required to assemble the compression joints; the compression joints are fully mountable, assembled and complete.
Compression fittings have another important advantage - this connection is foldable and allows quick disassembly or rework of the piping system if needed. Installation of polyethylene fittings can be carried out in almost any weather condition, including at low temperatures.
