Getting the Proper Pipe Fittings

Pipe Fittings are important to prevent leaks, bursts, and weak connections. The right size and material make a big difference in the performance of the piping or tubing system. Stainless steel fittings are the strongest fittings available. They withstand high temperatures, are corrosion resistant, and reduce the potential of contaminants entering the products flowing through the pipes. These fittings are typically used in systems that transport water, gas, oil, and steam. They come in several sizes and can be custom made to suit any need. Other fittings available include adjustable and O-ring fittings, aluminum fittings, and metric ones.

Another material that can be used in custom fittings is brass. There are over 30 types of brass fittings in stock, but if there is nothing that will suit the need, they can be designed and made to fit specifications. Brass fittings are also resistant to corrosion, especially from water polluted with acids. It forms tight seals and is easier to thread that stainless steel. The cost is lower than stainless steel as well. Steel fittings are the most cost-effective material for custom fittings. It is a strong iron and carbon material and is used in high-pressure applications. It is not resistant to corrosion, so it is used in environments where that likelihood is slim. Pipe Fittings can be custom made while customers wait or shop at most large supply stores, including Ameriflex Hose and Accessories.

Hoses of all sizes and sorts are kept in stock and can also be custom made. If a customer requires assistance in developing a new design for a specific need, experienced staff are available to help. Tiny and delicate hoses, large and heavy duty industrial hoses, and anything in between is not a problem. Truck parts from brands names like Coxreels, Parker Hannifin Fleet Distributor, and BrakeQuip are available in stock.

Emergency services are available 24/7 to keep trucks on the road and factory production running smoothly. Hoses tear, fittings fail, and pipes burst at all hours of the day and night. In some cases, waiting until regular business hours is not an option due to the cost and time constraints of merchandise and scheduling.
