Reducing Pipe

As one type of industrial fittings, reducing pipe is mainly used for connection between two pipelines with different diameters. Generally, pipe reducers can be divided into concentric reducer and eccentric reducer. The former is often used on vertical pipelines, while the latter is usually installed on horizontal pipelines. Sometimes, flow rate can’t change two much when the flow increases or decreases in a pipeline. The reducer is perfect for this situation. It is able to effectively prevent cavitation when installed in the inlet of a pump. The reducer is also needed at the joint points of an instrument such as flow meter or control valve to coordinate with the instrument.
