However, it has a high-pressure drop due to a sudden change in the direction of flow. The 90 reducing elbow is designed to change direction as well as reduce the size of the pipe within a piping system. The reducing elbow eliminates one pipe fitting and reduces the welding by more than one-third. Also, the gradual reduction in diameter throughout the arc of the reducing elbow provides lower resistance to flow and reduces the effect of stream turbulence and potential internal erosion. These features prevent sizeable pressure drops in the line.
Lightly oil the cone of the screw sleeve and the thread of the union nut. With sealing cone screw-on fittings with O-ring (AOL / AOS), the pre-stressing of the O-ring must be bridged and the sealing cone must lie metallically flush against the cone of the HL/HS connector. At this point, the cutting ring may be allowed to rotate, but must not move axially. Tightening torques for stainless steel fittings and for fittings with UN/UNF threads available upon request. The entire fitting consists of the threaded connector, the spacer ring with O-ring seal, the pressure ring and the union nut.
The lighter rubber fittings may not muffle sound as well as the heavy cast-iron fittings. In addition, some conservative plumbing codes still require leaded hub joints for final connections where the sewer main leaves a building. Although low-priced wyes are often spot-welded, industrial-strength wyes are flash-welded at each seam. In long-distance pipeline applications, a specialized wye is used for allow insertion of pigging to keep pipes clear and maintain flow.
Compression coupling is regular coupling which is connected between two pipes and it prevents leakage by the arrangement of gaskets or rubber seals on both sides, otherwise glue is provided. Slip coupling is easier to install and it contains two pipes which are arranged as one into other, inner pipe can slide up to some length. Flanges are rated at 150, 300, 400, 600, 900, 1500, and 2500psi; or 10, 15, 25, 40, 64, 100, and 150 bars of pressure. Various types of flanges are available, depending on construction.

Above a certain velocity, the laminar ow of the oil becomes a turbulent ow. Turbulent flows lead to greater heat generation in the system, with consequential losses of pressure and performance.
A threaded pipe has a screw thread at one or both ends for assembly. Crosses, also known as four-way fittings or cross branch lines, have one inlet and three outlets , and often have solvent-welded socket or female-threaded ends. Cross fittings may stress pipes as temperatures change, because they are at the center of four connection points.
