There is no one formula for fitting take offs. The general rule used for gal and black malleable fittings is on a center to center measurement to take off the ID of the pipe you are using on each end of the pipe. Example if center to center measurement is 10 feet between a 1 inch tee and a 1 inch 90 ell. The end to end measurement would be minus 2 inches for a total of 9 foot 10 inches. If you are a industrial pipe fitter there is a pipe fitters blue book that covers all this and a lot more,but the formula we use is take the size of the fitting and break it down 4 times add the second and forth dimension together and there's your take off,ex. 10 inch 45 degree carbon steel would be like this,,,,,10-5- 2.5-11/4=6 1/4 take out.......

Using fittings to change centerline of pipe.




No. Compression fittings are NOT for steam pipes


It is probably referring to the type of fitting. A fitting that is soldered to a copper pipe. It is called sweating when you use solder and a torch to connect copper pipe together or attach fittings to copper pipe.


No you cannot mix the fittings, the properties from the galvanised pipe will weaken the properties in the brass. It is always best to either change or repair a pipe or fitting with the same material.


Shark-bite fitting, copper sweat X CPVC union, compression fitting, other fittings and adapters available also to join pipe. Check at hardware store.

The Hub and Spigot are two types of fitting on either end of a pipe.At one end you have the Hub (Socket) fitting; which is a "female" end of a fitting designed to accept pipe or a SPIGOT connector.At the other end you have the Spigot fitting; which is a "male" end of a fitting designed to be used inside another fittings Socket (or Hub) end.


For 90 degree fittings divide the diameter by 2 then add quotion to original diameter for 45 degree fittings multiply .625 X the diameter on 3r 45's multiply .625X diameter then X 2


Take either an SOS pad or a wire brush and rough up both the inside of the brass fitting and outside of copper pipe, put the copper pipe into the fitting and solder around it.


NPT is a standard for threaded pipe and fittings. NPT stands for national pipe thread. NPT fittings are tapered thread fitting and usually rely on mechanical deformation in between the male and female fittings to create a seal in addition with teflon tape. Over tighteting may result in a leakage SAE O-ring fittings are straight fittings and rely on the O-ring to create the seal rather than deformation as in NPT fittings. Since these fittings do not depend on deformation chances of a broken fitting are virtually eliminated.


No, fittings go over the pipe


It depends on the size of PVC. For smaller PVC you can buy fittings that glue onto the PVC and allow a thread x barb fitting to be installed. For larger pipe you should get a brass compression fitting that clamps down on the PVC and adapts to a thread x barb fitting.


There are many different types of plumbing pipe, each with their own range of fittings. The term 'fittings' refers to angle joints, T joints, connections and parts to join onto other types of pipe. Many plumbers use copper and have a range of fittings that must be 'soldered' in place. Some others use PVC pipe which must be glued with specific glues, and yet others use pipe such as PEX which uses crimped fittings.


Question is other way round FPT not FTP Female Pipe Thread FPT fittings are equivalent to "National Pipe Thread" (NPT) ones, but different from National Standard Free-Fitting Straight Mechanical Pipe Thread (NPSM) fittings.


To calculate the surface area of a pipe fitting, you need to use the formula 3.14 x L x D. The L stands for the length of the pipe and the D is the diameter of the pipe.


We can't show pictures. Look in the plumbing aisle of Home Depot, you will find Sharkbite fittings there.

Not sure what you mean by pressure fittings. Threaded fittings for steel pipe are pressure fittings. Steel pipe with a 3/4" O.D. is known as 1/2" I.P.S. (Iron Pipe Size) pipe.


A Victaulic fitting is really a grooved end fitting that is used with grooved end pipe, joined with a coupling. These are found on a variety of commercial and industrial piping systems. Victaulic is the company that originated the grooved piping method so the name "Victaulic" is their registered trade name. The correct generic terminology for these fittings is simply grooved end fittings.
