Fittings are used for coupling sections of tube in a piping system as well as for connecting instruments, valves, pumps and other devices. The stock programme is divided into two article groups depending on whether joining is by threading or welding. Fittings fall into a number of article types: bends, T-joints, flanges and so on, and for each type there are many dimensions. In terms of stainless-steel grades, fittings must obviously be in parity with the material selected for the tubes both in relation to corrosion resistance and pressure classification. A wide range of stainless-steel fittings complements Tibnor’s extensive stocking programme for tubes, thereby offering a complete solution for piping systems.
