For quite a long time stainless steel pipes have been something that has quite a long history in the world, if we look at the early thick-walled threaded connections and welded joints we get to see and are some examples in our daily lives. Although these are considered the perfect option for sanitary and are the best in the terms of performance, however, they do not fully comply with the concept of social development of energy conservation. Therefore, the experts had to go through a detailed study of the technology of the thin wall connection of the stainless steel. In the era of the late 1950s, a Swedish Engineer invented the press-fit connection technology.
How Were They Introduced?
In the year 1961 Germany officially began the production and the sales of the fitting mainly involving the carbon steel system that includes the wire pipes, fittings, rubber rings, tools, etc.). In the year 1984, Mapress introduced press fittings made from that are widely seen being used all around the world and the press-fit connection has become a standard method of the connection pipe. For instance, if we talk about the GD Press fittings we see that this type of fitting is made up of stainless steel which makes these parts the best material parts that would not corrode with the time and would have good mechanical properties as the material of stainless steel is famous because of the fact that it has good mechanical properties and can be drawn in the form of thin-walled tubes in order to reduce the cost and make it a cost-effective option.
With the continuous development of the thin-walled stainless steel technology of the water pipe connections, they ensure the technical performance that is required for the supply of water and the drainage designs that are made in order to overcome the high prices of the thick-walled stainless pipes and the installation of the threaded connections. However, the natural development of the demands of the market. And the promotion of the applications of the stainless-steel fittings that are based on the thin-walled structure cannot be ignored.
Benefits Of Using Press Fittings Made From Stainless-Steel
There are a lot of countries that are promoting the use of thin-walled stainless steel fittings. It is also because of their small size and their light weight that the thin-walled stainless pipes are preferred by the people and the industries however they are generally not considered suitable for threaded connections. Stainless steel pipe fittings are the type of fittings that have the advantage of easy and quick installation, they can easily stabilize the pressure they show resistance against corrosion and they show no pollution to the fluid media. They are considered the perfect joints for thin-walled stainless pipes. These press fittings are divided into M profile and into V profile. When it comes to the benefits of having press fittings we get to see the following things:
They are quite beneficial in the terms of installation as a special rubber sealing ring is usually installed in the U-shaped groove at the end of the fitting. When the fitting is being installed the pipe is inserted into the press-fit port of the stainless-steel fittings to the positioning of the step positioning. There is a special clamping tool that is then attached to the u-shaped groove and U.
2)Safety And Reliability
These press fittings are also famous in the terms of safety and reliability as these fittings have a high strength of connection and anti-vibrational properties. As soon as the connection part is dead once, this would avoid the possibility of loosening the joints that are that loose joints. Some examples of it are house vibration, water hammer vibration, and loosening caused by the earthquake.
3) Low Cost Of The Labor
These are the type of fittings that does not require any sort of welding, threading or rolling work in order to make the connections thus there is no need for a professional installer in order to install these connections and almost everybody is able to do that. These fittings are maintenance-free, renewal-free, and have superior economic performance throughout the life of the building. This saves a lot of environmental renewal costs and also the loss of customer property and service.
4) Low Flow Pressure Loss
In the case of these fittings, another benefit that we see is in the form of low flow pressure loss. The flow rate is referred to the amount of liquid that is flowing through the closed section of an effective section of an open channel in a certain period of time, this is also known as the instantaneous flow, it is observed when the amount of fluid is expressed in the form of the volume it is then known as the volume flow.
