What Products Do Fire GroovedPipe Fittings Include, And What Are Their Standards?

Dec 27, 2023 | Industry News, News

Fire Grooved pipe fitting is a type of pipe connection used in fire protection systems, usually used in fire protection systems in buildings and other places. These fittings are joined mechanically without the need for welding by matching notches and rubber seals. Here are some common fire Grooved fittings and their standards:

Grooved Elbow:

This is a fitting used to connect two pipes at an angle, usually 90 degrees. Standards may cover aspects such as notch design, material specifications, and mechanical properties.

Fire Grooved Tee (Grooved Tee):

Tee connector used to create branches in pipes. Standards typically include size ranges, pressure ratings and connection methods.

Fire Grooved Reducer:

Used to connect two pipes of different diameters to change the size of the pipe. Standards may cover applicable size ranges, material requirements and connection methods.

Grooved Flange:

Flange connectors used to connect pipes to valves, equipment, etc. Standards may include flange size, connection methods and applicable pressure ratings.

Fire Grooved Cross:

A connector used to create branches in four directions in a pipe. Standards typically cover dimensions, pressure ratings and connection methods.

Rubber Gasket:

This is an important part of providing a seal at the grooved fitting joint. Standards may include material, performance and dimensional requirements for rubber seals.

Common standards and specifications may include:

  • NFPA 13: Standard published by the National Fire Protection Association for the installation of fire protection systems, including requirements for fire protection Grooved systems.
  • ASTM A536: Standard published by the American Society for Testing and Materials for ductile iron, a common fire protection Grooved pipe material.
  • UL Listed: Some building materials and equipment are listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to ensure that they meet relevant safety standards.

Please note that specific products and standards may vary by region and country, so it is best to follow local building codes and fire regulations when selecting and installing fire Grooved fittings.
