Concentric reducer are tube fittings that are widely used in a number of industries in order to providing greatest connection flexibility in connecting fractional tubes in various installations. Pipe reducer is a kind of pipe fitting that joins two pipes of different diameter. The pipe reducers are available in a range of materials depending on the end use of the products and these fittings are manufactured in inch and metric size.
Pipe reducers are special type of tube fittings that are commonly used in the demanding environments of chemical and power plants. They provide a highly reliable, sturdy and tight integral line system and these type of pipe fittings remain unaffected by shock, vibration or thermal distortion. These pipe fittings are very easy to install and they resist leakage due to thermal or pressure cycling. These reducers are sometimes chrome or nickel coated to prevent corrosion and increase the life of the product.
An Eccentric reducer, also called a Bell reducer, has two female (inside) threads of different sizes with centers so designed that when they are joined, the two pieces of pipe are not in line with each other, but they can be installed so as to provide optimum drainage of the line.
