The NIBCO 5893 trap pipe fitting is made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) for use in drain, waste, and vent systems (DWV) and has a hub connection and a slip-joint connection. This trap fitting has a 90-degree turn for creating a water seal in commercial and residential drain, waste, and vent (DWV) systems by automatically trapping water in the arc of the fitting to prevent gases from entering occupied spaces. It has a female hub opening on one end and a slip joint opening on the other for connecting to unthreaded pipes. Tightening the slip nut against the slip joint washer creates a compression seal against leaks and loosening the slip nut allows disassembly of the joined parts. This fitting is made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) for use in non-pressure residential and commercial drain, waste, and vent (DWV) sanitary systems. ABS resists most household chemicals and many corrosive and abrasive industrial liquids, performs under a wide temperature range, has high impact resistance, and is lighter in weight than metal for simple installation above or below ground. ABS can be connected to other material such as steel, copper, or cast iron using transition fittings. This fitting provides superior flow to metal because of its smooth interior finish, which reduces friction and inhibits buildup of materials. This fitting meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D2661 and D3311 specifications for quality assurance.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size, and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
NIBCO manufactures flow-control products for construction, industrial, fire protection, and irrigation applications. The company, founded in 1904, is headquartered in Elkhart, IN, and meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 standards for quality assurance.
