Compression fittings are one of the easiest and fastest ways to join two lines. These Compression connections are also know as Hydraulic fittings. These fittings are suitable to use on hard copper pipe and soft tubing that has a 3/8" or smaller outside diameter (like faucets and icemakers). Compression fittings size vary widely according to the outside diameter like a 1/2" OD pipe would require a 1/2" compression fitting.
These Compression fittings are available in many materials including Copper, Brass & Stainless Steel. These fittings are used in instrumentation system connections. There are many types of Compression fittings such as:
A union, is type of fitting and similar to a coupling, whic is used to disconnection of pipes for maintenance or fixture replacement. In contrast to a coupling requiring solvent welding, soldering, or rotation (for threaded couplings), a union is in demad due to very easy connection and disconnection, multiple times if needed.
There are three parts of pipe union:
Types of pipe unions:
There are two basic types of pipe unions:
Applications & uses of union fittings:
Size: 1 inch, 3/4 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch, 1/2 inch
