Grooved Joint vs. Grooved End Fittings

While both utilize a similar groove design, there are some key differences between grooved joint and grooved end pipe fittings:

Grooved Joint Fittings

  • Feature an internal groove machined into the fitting body
  • Allows pipe to be inserted and secured using a grooved coupling
  • Permits angled connections, branch takeoffs and easy disassembly
  • Commonly used in flexible pipe joining applications

Grooved End Fittings

  • Have the groove cut directly into the pipe end
  • Directly accepts a grooved coupling for a rigid, permanent joint
  • Requires precise pipe end preparation for proper sealing
  • Typically used in more permanent, straight-run piping layouts

FLUID’s high-quality grooved joint fittings deliver the versatility to handle a broader range of piping configurations and installation requirements compared to the more rigid grooved end style.

Diverse Applications for Grooved Joints

FLUID’s grooved joint pipe fittings find use across a variety of commercial, industrial and infrastructure projects, including:

Fire Protection Systems

  • Easily configure flexible sprinkler and standpipe networks
  • Accommodate changes in direction, elevation and branch connections
  • Facilitate repairs and modifications without system shutdown


  • Connect chilled/hot water distribution piping for large buildings
  • Integrate with grooved pump, valve and other components
  • Allow on-site adjustments to adapt to field conditions

Process Piping

  • Transport liquids, gases and slurries in manufacturing facilities
  • Provide reliable joints that can handle vibration, thermal expansion
  • Support modular, expandable piping layouts

Public Utilities

  • Build and maintain water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure
  • Withstand high pressures and soil/ground movement
  • Simplify installation and future expansion

Oil & Gas

  • Construct gathering, distribution and flow lines for energy production
  • Provide secure, leak-proof connections in rugged environments
  • Streamline maintenance and replacement of system components

With grooved joints, FLUID’s fittings offer unparalleled versatility to seamlessly integrate into a wide range of critical piping applications.
