Title: Examples Of Using Pp Compression Fittings
Tags: pp compression fitting
Blog Entry: Compression fittings are made from a variety of materials. The most common material for a pp compression fitting is brass, but you must make sure to buy lead-free brass fittings because it's illegal to use any fitting with lead content in the U.S. They are also commonly made from plastic and stainless steel. Depending on the material or your fitting, the amount of pressure or temperature that the fitting can withstand will vary. How are compression fittings used? Compression fittings are used in a variety of applications. Anywhere you're connecting a waterline or air pneumatic lines you will see a compression fitting used. If you're just hooking up drinking water systems, you're probably going to use a quick-connect or a quick-disconnect type fitting. The angle-stop underneath your sink is an example of a compression thread. These types of flex lines often will use compression type threads to hook up to a coffee brewer, for example. Some have a faucet connection on one side and then the angle-stop connection, which is your compression thread, on the other. You can use just a regular compression nut and sleeve to attach tubing to the top of an angle-stop. These fittings all connect the same way.
