Pipe Shape

  • Adapter

    Adapters are used for joining pipes with different types of connections, such as joining a threaded end to an end without threads.

  • Bushing

    Bushings are pipe fittings used to connect pipes of two different sizes. They have male threads on the outside and female threads on the inside.

  • Cap

    Caps are used to close and terminate the ends of pipes or fittings. They have female (or no) threads and fit over the outside of the pipes or fittings they are closing.

  • Coupling

    Couplings are used to connect two pieces of pipe going in the same direction and can connect pipes with different types of connections, sizes, and material type. They can have threads or be welded or cemented together.

  • Cross pipe fitting

    Crosses have four openings used to connect and branch four pieces of pipe. They can have threads or be welded or cemented together.

  • 45-Degree Elbow

    45-degree elbows are v-shaped fittings used to change flow direction between pipes at a 45-degree angle. Elbows with both a male and female end are called street elbows. They can have threads or be welded or cemented together.

  • 90-Degree Elbow

    90-degree elbows are L-shaped fittings used to change the direction of piping at a 90-degree angle. Elbows with both a male and female end are called street elbows. They can have threads or be welded or cemented together.

  • Flanges

    Flanges are used to connect two pieces of pipe or valves and usually have bolt holes to connect to flat surfaces or other flanges. They can also be used to absorb vibrations and may require gaskets, which are sold separately.

  • Locknut

    Locknuts are used to provide extra support to pipes and fittings. They can prevent vibrations from loosening placement of the pipe and work by clamping or self-locking when screwed onto fittings.

  • Nipple Fitting

    Nipples are short length pipe fittings, usually threaded, and are used to join pipes or extend pipe lengths.

  • Plug Fitting

    Plugs are used to close and terminate the ends of pipes or fittings. They have male (or no) threads and are inserted into the pipes or fittings they are closing.

  • Stubend

    Stub ends are used with lap joint flanges to connect pipes to flat surfaces or other flanges. The stub end is seated against the lap joint flange to create sections of pipe that can be disassembled easily for inspection or replacement.

  • Tee Fitting

    Tees are T-shaped fittings and have three openings used to connect and branch three pieces of pipe. They can have threads or be welded or cemented together.

  • Union Fittings

    Unions are used to connect two pipes and can usually be taken apart more easily than coupling fittings. They often have several pieces with threading that can be screwed or unscrewed for quick installation and disassembly. 

  • Wye Fitting

    Wyes are Y-shaped fittings with three openings used to connect and branch three pieces of pipe. The Y-shape provides less friction and resistance to flow than the 90-degree angle of the tee fitting. They can have threads or be welded or cemented together.
