Pipe stainless steel round 38Х1.2
- food-grade round stainless pipe, outer diameter 38 mm, thickness 1.2 mm. The surface is mirrored. The length of one pipe is six meters.
Stainless pipe joint
During the technical installation of structures made of pipe with a diameter of 38 mm and other diameters made of stainless steel, the individual elements are connected into a single network by welding, using special flange joints or crimping.
The connection of stainless pipes by welding has its own subtleties and requires special equipment and highly qualified specialists. Welding with stainless metal can be carried out in an inert gas using tungsten electrodes. But more commonly used plasma welding methods using a directed flow of a plasma arc. However, welding is not always possible when laying pipelines. In addition, when laying a domestic water supply system, it can be difficult to find workers of suitable qualifications.
Less time-consuming is without a threaded flange or threaded fitting connection using special structural parts - couplings, flanges or fittings. The flange connection allows you to assemble the pipes through the use of fasteners (bolts or studs), and is a pair of rings with holes between which the sealing element is laid. This installation method is used mainly if the system needs periodic maintenance and replacement of individual parts. In addition, when using a flanged pipe connection, one can not ignore its disadvantages: a rather large metal consumption, an increase in the size of the nozzles and a decrease in tightness under temperature fluctuations and force effects. When using fittings, for tightness of the connection of the individual components of the water supply system, the kit uses a special silicone gasket, which is clamped by a ring when screwing the union nut. Such a connection is mobile and, if necessary, makes it possible to dismantle the system without deformation of individual parts. It is not recommended for use on large-diameter pipelines, since it cannot provide sufficient strength for connecting parts, but household water systems are often assembled using this method.
