Pipe fittings are parts that are used to connect pipe segments to other fluid control equipment, like valves and pumps, to build pipelines. When people talk about “fittings,” they usually mean the parts that go on metal and plastic pipes that carry fluids.
Different types of pipe fittings can be used to join pipes or attach handrails and other building components, where a leak-free connection is not required. These fittings are commonly constructed from PVC, iron, brass, and copper materials. Additionally, based on the material of the pipe, welded, threaded, mechanically attached, or chemically bonded fittings can be used.
A pipe fitter is a skilled plumber that does pipe installation, upkeep, and repairs on large industrial projects. They shape metals like stainless steel or other alloys and a variety of pipe types through welding and bending to meet industrial specifications.
They manipulate pipe and metal in different ways, like threading, cutting, grinding, welding, bending, soldering, rigging, etcetera. Pipe fitters are involved in every step of the process, from planning to installation. They use welding equipment like cutting torches and hand and power tools to do their jobs.
