Copper reducing coupling is a type of plumbing fitting specifically designed to connect two copper pipes of different diameters. This coupling allows for a transition between pipes with larger and smaller diameters in a plumbing system.
Copper reducing couplings typically have a larger socket on one end and a smaller socket on the other end. The larger socket accommodates the larger diameter copper pipe, while the smaller socket accommodates the smaller diameter copper pipe. The joint between the pipes and the coupling is commonly sealed using soldering techniques, creating a secure and permanent connection.
Reducing couplings are essential in plumbing installations where a change in pipe diameter is required, such as when connecting different sections of a plumbing system or when adapting to fixtures and appliances with varying pipe sizes.
Copper is a popular material for plumbing due to its corrosion resistance, durability, and excellent heat conductivity. Copper reducing couplings, like other copper fittings, play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of the plumbing system by providing a means to transition between pipes of different sizes while ensuring a leak-free connection.
