1

Adapters

-Used to connect dissimilar pipes.

2

Bulkhead Fittings

-Meant to allow free flow of liquids in tank, drum drainage and other plumbing connections.
-Usually have left handed threads.

3

Compression Fittings

-Used to connect two pipes or a pipe to a fixture or valve.
-These fittings are widely used for hot and cold water faucets; and toilet stop valves.

4

Pipe Cap

-Main use is to waterproof connections.
-Also used to close the ends of hydraulic or pneumatic pipes and tubes.

5

Pipe Coupling

-Fittings that help to extend or terminate pipe runs.
-Also used to change pipe size.

6

Pipe Elbow

-Allows for a change of direction.
-45
-90

7

Pipe Nipples

-Length of straight pipe with male threads on both ends.

8

Pipe Plug

-Designed to insert into the end of tubing to dead-end the flow.

9

-Pipe fitting that joins two pipes of different diameter.

10

Pipe Union

-Connects two pipes which can be detached without causing any deformation to the pipes.

11

Pipe Tee

-Type of pipe fitting which is T-shaped having two outlets, at 90° to the connection to the main line.

12

Pipe Wyes

-Similar to pipe tees.
-The only difference is in that the branch line is angled to reduce friction which could hamper the flow.
-The pipe connection is typically at a 45-degree angle rather than a usual 90-degree angle.
