The pipe reducer is a kind of pipe fitting that joins two pipes of different diameters. The pipe reducers are available in a range of materials depending on the end-use of the products and these fittings are manufactured in inch and metric size.


A carbon steel reducer is a kind of carbon steel pipe fitting. The material used is carbon steel, which is used for the connection between two pipes with different diameters.


According to the different shapes, it is divided into two types: concentric reducer and eccentric reducer. Concentricity is well understood that the center points of the circles at both ends of the pipe are called concentric reducers on the same straight line, and vice versa is the eccentric reducer.


What is the Butt Welding Reducer?

The butt welding reducer is a steel hot-pressed or forged reducer, and its connection form is to directly butt weld the steel pipe. Butt welding reducers generally have concentric reducers and eccentric reducers, and the materials are carbon steel, alloy steel and stainless steel. The main manufacturing standards for butt welding reducers are generally GB/T12459, GB/T13401, ASME B16.9, SH3408, SH3409, HG/T21635, HG/T21631, SY/T05010, etc.



Oil and gas industry: In the oil and gas industry, reducers are used to connect pipes of different sizes in pipelines that transport crude oil, natural gas, and other petroleum products.


Chemical industry: In the chemical industry, reducers are used in piping systems that transport corrosive fluids and gases, such as acids, alkalis, and solvents.


Water treatment plants: In water treatment plants, reducers are used in the piping systems that transport water and other liquids.


HVAC systems: In heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, reducers are used to connect pipes of different sizes in the ductwork that distributes hot or cold air.


Food and beverage industry: In the food and beverage industry, reducers are used in piping systems that transport liquids, such as beer, wine, and soft drinks.
