Selecting the Right Custom Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings

Posted by Daniel lawrence on August, 2015

Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings have several benefits over brass and steel pipe fittings. The material is strong and corrosion resistant. It can withstand high temperatures and reduces the potential of contaminants entering products. It is used to transport gas, oil, water, and steam. There are several sizes of pipe fittings in stock, or they can be custom-made for air brakes, valves, hoses, or any other need. Pipe fittings have to be exact to be effective, so if customers are unsure of the size needed, they can bring in the pipe or hose to be fitted. Experienced staff will help customers get the product they need for the task.

Brass fittings are lower in price than Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings, and they are easier to thread than stainless steel. Brass also resists corrosion and forms tight seals. These fittings are typically used within heavy walls for heating and plumbing applications. There are over 30 types of brass fittings in stock. Steel fittings are cost-effective and can be used in high-pressure applications. They are a strong carbon and iron material but are not very resistant to corrosion. They work well in environments with little to no corrosion potential. Braze fittings for tubing are also available. Supply companies, like Ameriflex Hose and Accessories, for example also carry adjustable and O-ring fittings, pipe adapter unions, and imported fare-less steel.

Truck parts, cam locks and industrial hoses are a specialty and can be custom made in-house during the consumer waits or does other supply shopping. Twenty-four-hour emergency services are also available to keep truckers on the road, and industrial machinery operating. If hoses break, fittings fail, or a pipe bursts in a factory or manufacturing plant, time and money is wasted. Technicians can make hoses, fittings, and repairs to reduce downtime during any shift. A truck hose tear can stop a delivery in its tracks. Waiting until normal business hours can cost thousands of dollars in lost merchandise, or missed deadlines. Reliable and customized service can save independent truckers, trucking companies, and factories time and money. Having a huge inventory available also saves time and money over ordering needed parts.
