Reducer is often used in industry, mainly to connect the piping system. In many places will use it, but because of the reducer is divided into concentric and eccentric, so we in the application should be made clear they have what different, their respective and weaknesses, so when we are in the application would make the right choice, use will be more smooth. So what is eccentricity and concentric reducer? How to apply eccentric reducer and concentric reducer? Let's take a look.
Eccentric reducer and concentric reducer?
The reducer is also called the size head, which is used to connect different sizes of tubes. Generally, it is divided into eccentric reducer and concentric reducer. Eccentric reducer refers to the diameter of the tube that is not in the same line. The function is to stick a wall or stick to the pipe line without taking up space, and to connect two different calibre channels, change the size of the flow. The reducer of the center of the circle is called concentric reducer. It is usually used to press the forming process for reducing diameter pressing, diameter pressing or reducing diameter.
How to apply eccentric reducer tube:
The eccentric reducer is different in diameter and is used to connect different diameters of tubes or flanges. Eccentric reducer at both ends of the tube, circle, on the same axis diameter changes, in terms of axis of pipe position, the position of the pipe is changeless, commonly used in gas or liquid vertical pipe diameter changes. Eccentric reducer with circumferential intersecting, generally used for horizontal liquid piping. Eccentric reducer nozzle tangent point upward, known as the roof installation, commonly used in pump suction, exhaust, cutting down as bottom flat installation, generally used for valve installation, use the net. Eccentric reducer is beneficial for fluid flow and less interference in fluid flow when the diameter is variable, so the gas and vertical flow of liquid pipe are used with concentric reducer diameter. The eccentric size head is flat on one side, which is good for the exhaust or drainage, convenient for driving and maintenance, so the horizontal installation of liquid pipe is generally used in eccentric reducer.
How to apply concentric reducer:
Concentric reducer does not produce corrosion, pitting, rust or abrasion. It can play a good role and performance in the industry. Concentric reducer in the field of a certain industry and show the important role and performance, in use according to certain and characteristics of concentric reducer or building one of the high strength material of metal materials. Concentric reducer weak corrosive medium such as air, steam, water resistance and acid, alkali, salt and other chemical etching medium corrosion of the steel. Also called stainless acid-resistant steel. In practical application, often called the weak corrosive medium corrosion resistant steel concentric reducer, and called the resistance to chemical corrosion medium steel acid-resistant steel, due to the chemical composition on the difference between the two, the former does not necessarily medium resistance to chemical corrosion, while the latter are generally not rust.
After detailed introduction of eccentric reducer and concentric reducer, it is clear that the main difference is clear to everyone. Because they have their own particular attributes and characteristics, they will be used in different places to play their big role. Knowing this, we will know how to choose when we use the reducer in the future.
