A fitting is an item that is used when a straight pipe needs to be connected or make a turn in the system, as well as when you have to adapt different sizes or shapes of pipes. Fittings are likewise used for purposes like measuring and regulating the flow of the gas or fluid. The term plumbing is generally used when talking about a pipe system that is in charge of transferring, gas, water, or fluid waste, in home, commercial or even industrial environments.On the other hand, the term piping, is used when talking about high-performance pipe systems, for example,high temperature, hazardous materials, high flow, and high pressure transfer of fluids in specialized applications. As far as the tubing goes, this term is related to lighter-weight piping.
When it comes to Fittings, especially custom types, they need time, money, resources as well as specialized tools to be installed. This doesn’t make them an irrelevant part of the plumbing and piping systems.Valves are basically fittings, but they are not considered as fittings due to their different purpose.
As for any other technical product, when it comes to designing and producing the fittings, certain codes have to be followed, and the organizations that define standards in the piping industry are:The American Society of Mechanical Engineers or ASME, American Society for Testing and Materials or ASTM, American Petroleum Institute or API, and many more.Here are some examples of markings for standards:
Welded and Seamless Wrought Steel Pipe: ASME B36.10M
Stainless Steel Pipe: ASME B36.19M
Process Piping: ASME B31.3 2008
Power Piping: ASME B31.4 XXXX
The B31.3 / B31.4 code marks the pipes that are proper for the use in petroleum refineries piping systems, cryogenics, pharmaceutical, chemical, paper, semiconductor, and textile plants, as well as for plants that are related to these processes.
The pipe fittings bodies, and the tubing fittings bodies, are usually made of the same base material as the tubes or pipes that the fittings will connect.The materials like, steel, PVC, copper, steel, and more, are used for production of fittings. Furthermore, any material that passes the health, plumbing and building regulations,can be used in the system, but it has to be compatible with other materials used in the system, the pressure and the temperature the system generates, and with the fluids that go through the system.For example, bronze or brass fittings are usually used for copper plumbing and piping systems. There are also other factors that influence the choice of the fitting materials, such as earthquake resistance,climate in the area of the system, fire hazards, and more.
