Fittings are versatile components that are utilized to influence the flow of gaseous and fluid media. A Stainless Steel Hex Nipple is a short piece of a pipe fitting that has a male thread at both its ends that allows it to connect different piping fixtures and create a watertight seal. The Hex Nipple has a hexagonal cross-section and is generally designed in sizes of 1/2 NB to 12 NB. These nipples act as adapters creating a strong connection between components.
A Stainless Hex Nipple is produced by cutting specified lengths of pipes and connecting them with the desired end connection. These nipples come in seamless and welded configurations but are mostly preferred in low-pressure applications. A SS Hex Nipple has superior resistance to corrosive and reducing media. This makes the nipples very durable, giving them a long service life in stress-induced conditions. The SS 304 Hex Nipple is designed with an 18/8 chemical composition of nickel and chromium giving them enhanced corrosion and oxidation properties. These nipples are cheaper and offer a viable alternative to the high-strength 316 Stainless Steel Hex Nipple.
The Hex nipples of this grade have enhanced resistance to pitting induced by acids while also showing good resistance to other reducing agents. The versatile SS Reducing Nipple is utilized in connecting piping fixtures of unequal sizes in the system. They help in transporting high-pressured media from large bore sizes too small bore sizes piping fixtures. A Stainless Steel Swaged Nipple is another type of reducing nipple that is produced as it is forged at extreme temperatures. These modules are manufactured in accordance with the MSS SP-95 specification. The Stainless Steel Reducing Hex Nipple we offer is available in extensive shapes and sizes and can be customized by our renowned technicians, making use of the best techniques.
