A steel pipe reducer is a component used in the pipelines to reduce its size from large to small bore in accordance to the inner diameter. The length of the reduction here is equal to an average of the smaller and larger pipe diameters. Here, the reducer can be used as a diffuser or a nozzle. The reducer helps in meeting the existing piping of varied sizes or hydraulic flow of the piping systems.
Applications of Steel Pipe Reducer
The usage of a steel reducer is carried out in the chemical factories and power plants. It makes the piping system reliable and compact. It safeguards the piping system from any kind of adverse impact or thermal deformation. When it is on the pressure circle, it prevents from any type of leakage and is easy to install. The nickel or chrome coated reducers extends the product life, useful for high vapor lines, and prevents corrosion.
There are two types of reducer, concentric reducer and eccentric reducer.
Concentric Reducer vs Eccentric Reducer Differences
Concentric reducers are widely used while eccentric reducers are applied to maintain the top and bottom pipe level. Eccentric Reducers also avoids trapping of air inside the pipe, and Concentric Reducer removes noise pollution.
