Pipe Fittings are used in a multitude of industries throughout the world. Swiss Fittings has a wide product portfolio of stainless steel pipe fittings including, sockets, barrel nipples, running nipples, bends and hose welding nipples. The stainless steel used for these fittings are either 1.4404/316L, 1.4408, or 1.4571 and can be installed with any of our threaded fittings or valves that have an ISO7-1 thread. In addition to the standard European thread, also known as British metric, Swiss Fittings offers pipe fittings and valves in NPT threads. NPT threads are the standard thread type used in the United States of America.
Pipe fittings, also known as pipe nipples, and threaded fittings, are frequently purchased and installed together. Even though these fittings may seem similar in type, they actually belong to separate fitting categories. They differ in the manufacturing process giving the fittings different properties. Pipe fittings are produced from stainless steel seamless or welded pipes, while threaded fittings 150 are cast. Generally the fittings are cut from a six meter stainless steel welded pipe delivered from a pipe manufacturer. Prior to cutting the pipe into the necessary lengths, the pipe is examined for any defects. The pipe is then cut into the smaller nipples which eventually receive either the NPT thread or ISO7-1 thread. For barrel nipples there are standard lengths for each size: e.g. the standard length for a barrel nipple 1/2” is 60 mm (2.36 inches). Stainless steel sockets are usually delivered either in half lengths or full lengths and are also available in cast versions. The standard stainless steel used for pipe fittings is either 1.4404 (v4a) or 1.4301 (v2a).
Swiss Fittings carries a wide portfolio of fluid technology equipment and can deliver globally within a few days. We carry adapters, such as hexagon hose nipples and welding hose pipe nipples that provide a secure connection between hoses and fitting systems. Stainless steel welding nipples are used to connect a butt weld fittings system to a 150PSI fittings system. Furthermore, Swiss Fittings can delivery larger order quantities directly from production.
