Selection and Classification of Stainless Steel Reducers

2020-08-13

Stainless steel reducers are tools for connecting pipes of different sizes. Stainless steel reducers can be divided into eccentric stainless steel reducers and concentric stainless steel reducers according to the center line. When we set up stainless steel reducers, the two ports The projection is a concentric circle, that is, a concentric stainless steel reducer. The eccentric stainless steel reducer is called eccentric because the two centers do not overlap, but are on a straight line. These two different stainless steel reducers are also suitable for different ranges.

Concentric stainless steel reducers are used on vertical pipes, and eccentric stainless steel reducers are used on horizontal pipes. The bottom or top should be marked when used. When the flow rate of the liquid in the pipeline changes, the flow rate requirement is not too great when using stainless steel reducers. Especially in the installation of the pump inlet reducing pipe, in order to prevent gas from accumulating at the reducing diameter and avoid cavitation caused by errors in the installation process, the horizontal inlet pipe of the pump adopts an eccentric stainless steel reducer to prevent cavitation... Therefore, when reducing the diameter of the horizontal inlet pipe of the pump, an eccentric stainless steel reducer is used so as to cooperate well with the joints of the control valve, flowmeter, and other instruments. When the pipeline enters the pump horizontally from top to bottom, the stainless steel reducer should be flat at the bottom.

Concentric Reducer

Concentric Reducer

The application of stainless steel reducer is very wide, and many industries cannot do without it, such as natural gas, water, and electricity, construction, petroleum, boilers, etc. The forming process of surfacing elbows used in piping systems is very complicated and needs to be based on different materials and uses. Welding, casting, and forming under certain pressure.

The material of Concentric Reducer can be divided into stainless steel reducer and alloy steel reducer, and the steel used for stainless steel reducer is 20 steel or Q234, Q345, and other steels.

In the Stainless Steel Reducer Socket, the eccentric stainless steel reducer is mainly used as a connecting pipe fitting at the reduced diameter of the pipeline. The eccentric stainless steel reducer is generally formed by shrinkage molding, or it can be formed by shrinking and expanding. The stamping method can also be used for stainless steel reducers of some special specifications. The eccentric stainless steel reducer can not only use steel pipes as raw materials to produce stainless steel pipes of different diameters but also can use steel plate forming to press some special stainless steel pipes of different diameters. According to the size of the inner surface of the stainless steel reducer, the shape of the die is designed, and the steel plate is punched and stretched with the die.

Stainless steel reducing agent can also be divided into electric furnace steel, converter steel, and flat furnace steel according to the smelting method, and can be divided into special killed steel, rimmed steel, semi-killed steel, and killed steel according to the deoxidation method. Carbon steel can be divided into high carbon steel, medium carbon steel, and low carbon steel according to the carbon content. Carbon steel can be divided into ordinary carbon steel, special high-quality steel, high-quality steel, etc. according to the content of sulfur and phosphorus. Generally, the higher the carbon content of stainless steel pipes, the greater the hardness and strength, but in contrast, the plasticity Will become very low. So what is the reason for this? The mechanical properties mainly depend on the carbon content in the steel. Generally speaking, steel that does not contain a large amount of alloying elements is sometimes called carbon steel and ordinary steel.
