The reducing tee is also referred to as "unequal T-shape", which means that the diameter of the tee branch is different from that of the tee. Typically, in a reduced tee, the branch diameter is smaller than the running tube. However, there are some that the diameter of the branch pipe of the tee is expected to be larger than that of the running pipe, which means that the branch pipe is the inlet of the flow.
The main function of this tee is to change the direction of the fluid.
Because the reducing tee can be used in many industries, it can be divided into the following categories by different types:
1. Divided into carbon steel, cast steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum alloy, plastic, argon leaching, ppc and so on.
2. Divided by the production method can be divided into top system, pressing, forging, casting and so on.
3. According to the manufacturing standards, it can be divided into national standard, electric standard, water standard, American standard, German standard, Japanese standard and Russian standard.
Reducing tee is widely used in the construction and overhaul of petrochemical, oil and gas, liquefied petroleum gas, chemical fertilizer, power plant, nuclear power, shipbuilding, papermaking, pharmaceutical, food hygiene, urban construction and other industries.
