The Merit Brass concentric reducing coupling is a schedule 10 stainless steel 304/304L butt-weld pipe fitting for joining two concentric pipes of different sizes. This concentric reducer coupling connects two pipes of different sizes along the common pipe axis. The coupling has butt-weld, beveled openings for welding pipes together. Made of stainless steel 304L, the lower carbon content of this coupling minimizes harmful carbide precipitation during welding, ensuring corrosion resistance. It meets stainless steel 304 strength standards and 304L extra-low carbon standards 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).
Merit Brass manufactures pipe nipples following ISO 9001 standards for quality assurance. Family-owned since 1937, the company is based in Cleveland, OH. Merit Brass distributes pipe fittings to the United States and Canada.
