Why Do We Need Sanitary Fitting
Sanitary fitting is a broad term and is used in many industries and projects. To be concise, we can say that sanitary fitting refers to any component to join sanitary piping or tubes.
We need to use these fittings in number of places and in any plumbing application. For example, if you wish to join two pipes you have to use a sanitary fitting. Likewise, its existence is essential when a pipe is to be connected to supply drum. The point at which users receive gas, water or any other food product also requires a fitting. You also have to use an elbow or tee depending upon the number of pipes joining together. Moreover, there are valves also that are used to regulate or stop the flow of liquid or gas passing through system.
There are many configurations and designs are available in the market. However, three fundamental operating principles are more commonly used to design sanitary fittings. First one is suitable for butt welding. These fittings are butted alongside neighboring pipe sections and an enduring bond is formed by welding. Second type of fitting is fitted inside the pipe and a gasket is used to fasten it. Third design has a special feature. It gives you the flexibility of replacing and removing frequently. An easy to operate mechanism for clamping makes this flexibility possible.
When we refer tothe material used in manufacturing these fittings, stainless steel is widely employed. The benefit of stainless steel is that it is easy to clean its surface because of smoothness. It is a secure and useful alternative for sanitary applications. Its anti microbial quality and resistance power against corrosion even in extreme conditions makes it a choice of metal for sanitary fittings.
However, copper or steel is also used to produce these fittings for some non-food-based applications. Some people use thermoplastic piping for the applications where transport of water is required. Different grades of stainless steel fittings are available in the market. Although, you need to pay more money to buy high grade yet you get a better quality as compared to low grade stainless steel fittings. Smoother surface of higher grade stainless steel allows easy cleaning and also keep free of germs.
On the other hand, lower grade is accessible at comparatively lower price but it has some drawbacks. It is not totally germ-free because the rough texture on the surface is likely to attract dust and thus introduce contamination. Cleaning the sanitary fitting is also not easy for the same reason. Unlike traditional rubber products, gaskets made of food-grade rubber are used in these fittings.
