Butt welding reducers-concentric reducers,eccentric reducers
Butt welding reducers are one of the most used butt welding pipe fittings,which are used to connect pipes of two different diameters to adjust the fluid rate and speed.According to the shape it can be divided into concentric reducer and eccentric reducer.
A concentric reducer allows for connecting a large pipe to a smaller pipe by means of welding.A concentric reducer allows welded connection between two pipes with the same center line or alignment.
The butt welding reducers are made from the steel pipes directly for the common size. The bigger size more than 24 inches,will be manufactured from the steel plate.
An eccentric reducer allows for welding a large pipe to a smaller pipe with an offset center line.Because of its shape,the eccentric reducer is always used in horizontal piping systems.
The price of the concentric reducer is cheaper than the eccentric reducer and concentric reducer is easy to install than eccentric reducer for not to consider the alignment.
