A large pipe fitting known as a pipe reducer reduces the pipe's size by decreasing the inner diameter. The average of the inner and outer diameters is reduced by a quantity that is roughly equal to the length of the pipe. Stainless Steel Reducers are used to make pipe reducers because of its ability to withstand heat and corrosion. Additionally, the thickness of the material needed for a particular application can be decreased due to its great strength. They also have better characteristics and are frequently lightweight when alloyed with chromium and nickel.

 Types of Stainless Steel Reducers

In a nutshell, stainless steel pipe reducers alter the size of the pipe. The two main types of reducers used in the industry are concentric and eccentric. In a concentric reducer, the centre of both the larger diameter aperture and the smaller diameter opening is located on the same axis. The centerline elevation of the pipeline is kept constant. When the centre lines of the larger and smaller pipes must be kept the same, this type of reducer is used,

With this type of reducer, the centre lines of each pipe are on separate axes. These reducers are responsible for maintaining the pipe's bottom elevation. When one or both of the outside lying surfaces must be kept uniform, this type of reducer is used. 

Applications Of Stainless Steel Reducers

The offset of the reducer can be calculated by subtracting the smaller inner diameter from the larger inner diameter and dividing the result by two. Despite its smaller size, the component is comparable to reducers.

They are used to join larger pipes to smaller pipes that are either screwed or socket-welded together. Swages, like reducers, are available in eccentric and concentric varieties. Furthermore, they differ in terms of the types of ends they seek. For example, one component may have both plain and threaded ends, whereas another may only have plain ends. The primary purpose of stainless steel reducers is to reduce pipe size to meet system flow requirements or to conform to the pipe fitting size of the existing system.
