The pipe wrench (US), Stillson wrench or Stillsons (UK) is an adjustable wrench/spanner used for turning soft iron pipes and fittings with a rounded surface. The design of the adjustable jaw allows it to lock in the frame, such that any forward pressure on the handle tends to pull the jaws tighter together.

When the fitting is firmly in place, rotate both the pipe and the fitting several times to spread the flux evenly. A propane torch is the tool we’ll use to sweat copper pipe. If you look at the flame of torch you will notice there is a lighter blue, well-defined flame in the middle of a darker blue flame.
Chrome-moly pipe fittings offer a high strength, durable solution for applications in the power generation or petro-chemical industry. They are harder than most steel and come in a range of pressure ratings and pipe sizes that are suitable for use in high temperature, high pressure applications.
A street elbow (sometimes called a street ell or service ell) is a type of plumbing or piping fitting intended to join a piece of pipe and another fitting at an angle. The difference between a street elbow and a regular elbow is the nature of the connections on either end. A regular elbow has a female hub or FIP connection on both ends.
The NIBCO PressSystem copper female adapter features an The NIBCO PressSystem copper female adapter features an inboard bead and EPDM O-ring. Simply applying pressure from a pressing tool tightens the O-ring onto the tube ensuring a clean permanent watertight seal in seconds with no flame solder or flux.
Forged Steel Black and Galvanized Pipe Fittings are thick-walled and designed to provide simple, economical installation. Use with water and oil in chemical, petrochemical, pulp, paper, shipbuilding, waste incineration, and semiconductor industry applications. Note: Fittings must be used with properly rated nipples and pipe. Max. pressure: 3000 psi at 72°F.
In plumbing and piping, a nipple is a fitting, consisting of a short piece of pipe, usually provided with a male pipe thread at each end, for connecting two other fittings.. The length of the nipple is usually specified by the overall length with threads. It may have a hexagonal section in the center for wrench to grasp (sometimes referred to as a "hex nipple"), or it may simply be made from a ...

PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) has several advantages over copper: PEX is cheaper than copper. Half-inch PEX tubing costs about a third the price of copper. Some of the savings will be offset by the need for a special tool to install the fittings, but if you’re doing a medium to large plumbing ...
In PVC, a chlorine atom occupies 25 percent of the bonding sites on the carbon backbone, and the remaining sites are filled by hydrogen. CPVC differs from PVC in that approximately 40 percent of the bonding sites on the backbone are filled with chlorine atoms. The chlorine atoms surrounding the carbon backbone of CPVC are large atoms that protect the chain from attack.
Reducer fittings, bronze threaded (left) and copper sweat (right) A reducer is the component in a pipeline that reduces the pipe size from a larger to a smaller bore (inner diameter). The length of the reduction is usually equal to the average of the larger and smaller pipe diameters.
A slip joint fitting gets assembled in this manner(picture to the left), putting the nut, then washer on the pipe first. The taper of the washer should face the fitting(skinny side put into the fitting). Then, when the nut gets screwed onto the fitting, the washer gets compressed to form the seal.
A tee, the most common pipe fitting, is used to combine (or divide) fluid flow. It is available with female thread sockets, solvent-weld sockets or opposed solvent-weld sockets and a female-threaded side outlet. Tees can connect pipes of different diameters or change the direction of a pipe run, or both.
Telescoping Pipe and Tube Please refer to Pipe, Tube and Conduit for more information. Tube, pipe, EMT and bolt manufacturers haven't gotten together and helped us much when it comes to telescoping their products inside one another. This is a survey of only part of what is available, but covers the more readily obtainable materials.
Steel pipe is often joined with threaded connections; tapered threads are cut into the end of the pipe, sealant is applied in the form of thread-sealing compound or thread seal tape (also known as PTFE or Teflon tape) and the pipe is threaded into a threaded fitting with a pipe wrench.
PVC unions and PVC pipe union connectors are pipe fittings designed to connect two pipes together without the use of a sealant or traditional glued coupling. The advantage of using PVC pipe unions is that the pipes that are connected using PVC pipe unions can be taken apart and put back together again without the use of specialized tools.
