Pipe Sockets

Pipe Sockets

Pipe sockets, also known as pipe socket fittings or pipe couplings, are components used to connect two pipes or tubes together. They create a secure and leak-resistant connection by providing a socket or opening on each end where the pipes can be inserted and joined. Pipe sockets are commonly used in various plumbing, industrial, and construction applications to create straight-line connections between pipes of the same diameter.

Key points to understand about pipe sockets:

  1. Design:Pipe sockets have an opening or socket on each end where the pipes are inserted. The interior of the socket is threaded or smooth, depending on the type of connection required.
  2. Materials:Pipe sockets manufactured by Conex Metals are made from Brass or Stainless Steel. The choice of material depends on factors such as the type of fluid being transported, environmental conditions, and compatibility with other components.
  3. Types:There are different types of pipe sockets, including threaded pipe sockets and plain pipe sockets. Threaded sockets have internal threads that match the threads of the pipes, while plain sockets have a smooth interior for non-threaded pipes.
  4. Thread Types:Threaded pipe sockets come with various thread types, such as NPT (National Pipe Thread) or BSP (British Standard Pipe), to match the threaded pipes you are connecting.
  5. Applications:Pipe sockets are used in various applications, such as water supply systems, irrigation, gas lines, industrial piping, and more.
  6. Sizes:Pipe sockets are available in various sizes to match the diameter of the pipes being connected.
  7. Versatility:Pipe sockets are often used for creating straight-line connections between pipes of the same diameter. They can also be used to replace damaged sections of piping or to extend the length of a pipe.

Pipe sockets provide a practical and reliable solution for joining pipes together in various plumbing and industrial systems.
