90-degree street elbow for changing flow direction
Male and female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads for connecting two pipes

Relative softness of metal enables tighter seals and greater ease in installation
Manufactured to standard ASTM B-584-06 for lead-free quality assurance
The Merit Brass lead-free brass pipe fitting is a 90-degree street elbow with male National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads on one end and female NPT threads on the other end for connecting two pipes to change flow direction. Lead-free brass is comparable in strength to stainless steel, but is more corrosion resistant than stainless steel. The pressure ratings for this elbow are 125 psi for steam and 200 psi for water, oil, and gas (W.O.G.), and the fitting meets standards ASTM B-584-06 (C89833), ANSI B 1.20.1, and ANSI B 16.15 for quality assurance. Class is a standard relating to tolerance, construction, dimension, and wall thickness, but it is not a direct measurement of maximum working pressure.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
