Metal joints mainly have the following functions:
Metal joints mainly have the following functions: 1. Connect pipes It is used to connect metal pipes to form a pipeline system so that the medium can flow between pipes. 2. Change flow direction Change the flow direction of the pipeline through elbows, tees, etc. 3. Distribute traffic Distribute and control flow through manifolds, diverters, etc. 4. Compensate for thermal expansion and contraction of pipes The sliding joint is used to compensate for the dimensional changes caused by the thermal expansion and contraction of the pipe. 5. Quickly disassemble and assemble pipes Quick disassembly and assembly of pipelines through flanges, etc. 6. Reduce pipeline stress Use flexible joints to reduce the stress caused by pipeline vibration. 7. Connect pipes of different diameters Connect pipes of different specifications through pipe reducing joints. 8. Measure flow and pressure Flow and pressure measurement are achieved through joints equipped with measuring devices. 9. Cut off the pipeline fluid The shut-off valve is used to close the pipeline. 10. Eliminate fluid accumulation in pipes Drain the accumulated liquid in the pipeline through the drain valve. In summary, metal joints play an important role in connecting and controlling pipeline fluids. The correct selection of joint types can optimize the performance of the piping system.
