There are a lot of new plastic compression fittings that are very usages for the suppliers & people. As some people know, plastic compression fittings are used in plumbing & electrical conduit systems to connect two tubes or pipes together. Where the pipes or tubes are going to connect, the fittings will make of one or more compatible materials appropriate for the connection. Compression fittings have a part that is called ferrules. Stay with us to introduce you the famous Iranian suppliers.
Can You Fit Compression Fittings plastic pipe?
The compression fittings have two parts: an outer compression nut & an inner compression ring or ferrule. These are making of the brass compression fittings or copper compression fittings. When the nut is tightened, the ferrule is compressed between the nut & the receiving fitting. The ends of the ferrule is clamped around the pipe & between the ferrule bows away from the pipe. In this way, the ferrule is becoming thicker. For this reason, the ferrule seals the space between the pipe, nut & fittings by forming the tight joint. In the larger sizes of this compression fitting, there isn’t any single nut. But a flange with a ring of bolts can compress the ferrule. The bolts should be tightened like the ferrule in a smaller sizes. A little plumber’s grease or light oil applied will provide lubrication to help ensure a smooth, consistent & tightening of the compression nut. If the nut is over tightened, the ferrule is going to fail the joints. On the other hand, over tightened is one of the reason for leaking in the compression fittings. This how the compression fittings are work & you can fit the compression fittings plastic pipe easily & quickly.
Compression Fittings Installation Advice
Not all of the compression fittings are good for using with the plastic fittings or pipes. Compression fittings with short tube stops depth or hard olives should not be used with plastic fittings or pipe. The olive should be located within the length of the pipe insert & the pipe fully inserted into the fitting. Copper olives are the best choice for the brass olives. You need some tools & materials to install the compression fitting. Then, you have to be sure that the pipe is without any kinks, debris or old dirt. Some of the copper pipes have stickers that can clean these dirty materials easily. But be careful to clean them in the best way unless they are going to eat up the pipes. You should tighten the retainer nut in the best way. For examine the mount of tighten, you can hit the back of the fitting to ensure it seated properly. You can be sure the tight is enough when you start to hear a squeaking noise as you are tightening. This is caused by the rotational friction between all the parts inside. These are some advice that you can use when you want to install different types of compression fittings.
How do you fix a leaking PVC joint?
PVC pipes & joints fittings are glued with the PVC glue. These connections are very quick. Also, the plastic parts are chemically fused with the solvent cement. But there is a bad news. You can’t take apart the PVC joints or pipe when there is a leak. So you can’t repair them by separating them. ABS pipes are the other types of compression fittings. The PVC pipes are white or cream colored but the ABS pipes are a black plastic. Rubber & silicon repair tape is a thick, heavy-duty tape that sticks to itself rather than the part you are fixing. You can wrap the tape very tightly around the leaky PVC joint or pipe. One advantages of this repair is it can be wrapped in a spiral fashion for a considerable distance. For bond PVC & other plastics that is come in putty & liquid forms, you can use the repair epoxies. First, you have to dry the area & apply the epoxy by the manufacturer.to reach full strength, it takes 25 minutes to an hour or more. The liquid epoxy is thinner than putty & better for the leaks in the tight spaces. These are some ways that you can fix the PVC joints.
Major uses of plastic compression fittings
Fiberglass wrap is another way to fix the PVC fittings. To use this way first, you should wet the clothes in water & wrap it around the leaky PVC pipe or joint. Then, let the resin to harden for 10 or 15 minutes. If the leak is isolated into one area of a joint or piece of pipe, you can get a piece of rubber around it. Open the hose clamps & get them around the pipe. Wrap the water around the leaking part & tighten the hose clamps at the end of the rubber. This way can stop or slow down the leak & give you some time for the permanent repair. These are some ways to permanent repair for the plastic water pipe compression fittings. The major of uses the plastic water pipe compression fittings are in the sinks, showers, bathrooms & kitchens. Because these places are the most important places in our houses. For example if the pipes of the kitchen is starting to leak, everything in the kitchen is going to be damaged. So, using the best quality of the compression fittings is important. On the other hand, the uses of these pipes depend on the situation & places you want to use them.
Various types of plastic fittings on the market
We have three different types of plastic pipes:
Solid wall pipe: extrude pipes are including one layer of a homogeneous matrix of thermoplastic material. These types of plastic pipes are ready to use.
Structured wall pipe: these kind of pipes have an optimized design with regard to material usages to achieve the physical, mechanical & performance requirements. Structured wall pipes are tailor made solutions of piping systems.
Barrier pipe: pipe contains a flexible metallic layer as the middle of three bonded layers. Barrier pipes are using to provide protection for the contents passing through the pipe from aggressive chemicals or other pollution hen laid in ground contaminated by previous use. Most plastic pipe systems are made from the thermoplastic materials. The suppliers are going to melt the material, shape & then cool them. Pipes are normally produced by extrusion.
These are different types of plastic fittings that you can find on the market. These pipes are making with the different materials with the different qualities. If you are searching in the sites or shops, you can understand which one is better for using. In the next article, I’m going to tell you about the materials that the suppliers are using in producing these plastic pipes.
How long can platic pipe fittings last?
As I said in the previous section, suppliers are using different materials for making the plastic pipes. For example, for making the ABS, they are using the acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, for making the UPVC, they are using unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. To produce the CPVC, they are using the post chlorinated polyvinyl chloride. Using polybutylene for making the PB-1, polypropylene for making PP. PE are using the polyethylene, PVDF are using the polyvinylidene fluoride, PE-RT are using polyethylene RT & PEX are using cross-linked polyethylene. Because of that making these different kinds of pipes are very hard. The lasting of the plastic pipe is depending on the materials that suppliers are going to use. Some materials don’t have a high quality & because of that their lasting is not very much. But some suppliers are using the best quality materials to make the plastic pipes. Because of that their lasting is going to increase. On the other hand, if you are using them in the best way their lasting will be increased, too. If you are going to pure the water in the best way or clean the plastic pipes, they are not going to be damages easily & badly.
