Galvanized Pipe Fittings
About Galvanized Pipe Fittings
Galvanized pipe fittings are a type of connector used in various applications, such as supplying water to homes, irrigation for farms, sewage plumbing, and construction projects. These fittings are made from galvanized steel coated with a zinc layer to prevent corrosion over time. Galvanized pipe fittings can be used in conjunction with other materials, such as PVC or malleable iron, to create a leak-free connection.

Galvanized pipe fittings come in various shapes and sizes to fit different piping systems. Some common types include:
- Elbows: used to change the direction of the piping
- Couplings: used to connect two sections of pipe
- Tees: used to split the flow of a piping system into two branches
- Unions: used to connect two sections of pipe that can be easily disassembled
- Bushings: used to reduce the size of a piping connection
- Flanges: used to connect pipes to flat surfaces or other flanges
- Pipe nipples: short lengths of pipe with threaded ends
