The Different Types of CPVC Pipe Fittings

CPVC Pipe Fittings

Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, or CPVC, fittings are the most common pipe material used in residential, industrial, and other commercial plumbing systems. CPVC fittings rely on their exceptional durability and ability to deliver hot and cold water without affecting the water or pipes themselves. Changed the face of piping systems. CPVC piping systems are known for their exceptional qualities such as chemical resistance, pressure resistance, temperature resistance, and corrosion resistance. Winning the attention and trust of millions of people. In this blog, we will learn about the names of different CPVC pipe fittings and their varieties. Let’s start learning!

What are CPVC pipe fittings?

Pvc Pipe Fittings

CPVC pipe fittings are made from a strong, durable material and are used to create efficient residential and commercial plumbing systems. CPVC fittings are used to join two or more pipes, change the direction of a pipe, and possibly even join pipes with disparate components such as tanks, pumps, valves, etc. They are chemically resistant and can withstand higher temperatures and pressures, making them a good choice for applications such as fire sprinkler systems and drinking water supplies.

Type names and varieties of CPVC pipe fittings

Now that the basics of CPVC fittings are clear, let’s learn about the different types of CPVC fittings.

1.Common pipe fittings: CPVC common pipe fittings are used to join two or more CPVC pipes using CPVC solvent adhesive. These include CPVC sockets, tees, elbows, end caps and more. A CPVC tee is used to separate a pipeline into two distinct pipe runs. Whereas a socket is used to connect two pipes to create a longer pipe. CPVC elbows are used to rotate pipeline angles 90 degrees or 45 degrees. End caps are used to close the loop of the piping system.

2.Threaded Fittings: Threaded fittings connect pipes to other bathroom fittings or plumbing fixtures. Such as faucets, showers, pumps, water tanks, etc. The CPVC Male Thread Adapter (MTA) is used to connect threaded CPVC to solvent cement fitting CPVC. While a female thread adapter (FTA) is used to receive pipe with external threads.

3.Transition Fittings: These fittings are used when a CPVC piping system transitions from metal piping to CPVC piping. Brass tees work on the same principle as CPVC tees. CPVC brass elbows are also used to change the direction of lines. These also include brass MTAs and FTAs.

4.CPVC union pipe fitting: consists of threaded adapter, ordinary adapter and threaded ring. The basic function of a union is to connect two pipes. Similar to a socket joint, the main difference is that a socket joint is a permanent joint. The union is designed to be easily removable at any time.

5.Valve: used to control flow. These include two types: ball valves and concealed valves, both of which can allow or block the flow of water.

6.Flange: Flange joints connect pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form a pipeline system. It also allows for simple cleaning. A flange joint is formed by bolting two flanges together. There are gaskets between the flanges for sealing.

7.Tank couplings: Tank couplings with threads on both ends or one end are often used to connect the entire piping system to the overhead storage tank.

The Applications of CPVC Fittings

CPVC fittings are commonly used in fire sprinkler heads; however, they are also suitable for hot and cold water distribution in residential and industrial projects. They are used for transporting drinking water and food liquids and in water treatment plants.
