BW Reducer Concentric Reducer
BW (butt welded) reducer can be concentric (COC) reducer and eccentric (EEC) reducer.Among these two types,concentric reducer is more commonly used.The materical of reducer can be carbon steel,alloy steel and stainless steel.Clients can choose different material as their demands.
Reducer is a common used butt welded fitting.
BW reducer has two types:Concentric Reducer and Eccentric Reducer
The two ends of concentric reducer are designed with large diameter and small diameter, and the pipe is connected through conical transition section on the same axis.
Eccentric reducers have different end sizes and are used to connect pipes with different diameters on the same axis.
ECC Reducer VS COC Reducer
- The joint effect of the two is that the diameter change needs to change from one specification to another.
- Concentric reducer is conducive to fluid flow, and the interference to fluid flow state is small when the diameter is reduced. Therefore, concentric reducers are used for gas and vertical flow liquid pipelines;
- One side of the eccentric reducer is flat, which is convenient for exhaust or liquid discharge, startup and maintenance. Therefore, eccentric reducer is generally used for horizontal liquid pipeline.
The end of Butt welded fittings are connected to the pipe system by butt welding.Butt weld fittings provide permanent leak-proof performance.BW fittings could made from seamless or welded pipe,and then through several processes formed to get the shape of pipe fittings.
