The Parker branch tee is a stainless steel 316 t-shaped pipe fitting with two National Pipe Taper (NPT) female run connections and a male NPT branch for connecting a total of three pieces of pipe. The fitting has NPT threads for creating tighter seals than straight threads and it is made from stainless steel 316 for higher strength and greater corrosion resistance than stainless steel 304. This branch tee meets standards ANSI B31.1 and B1.20.1 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).
