4 Way Galvanized Pipe Fittings and 4 Way Black Pipe Fittings

by | Jun 1, 2023 | News

Galvanized and black pipe fittings are essential for joining multiple pipe sections together to construct sprinkler, plumbing, and HVAC pipe systems. 4 way fittings allow joining 4 pipes together at a single junction. They come in both galvanized and black iron versions.

Galvanized Pipe Fittings

Galvanized fittings are made of steel that has been dipped in molten zinc to provide corrosion protection. They are used in outdoor sprinkler and drainage systems where they are exposed to weather. The zinc coating shields the steel from oxygen and moisture that can cause rusting.

4 way galvanized pipe fittings allow joining 4 sections of galvanized pipe together in both straight and angled configurations. They include:

  • 4 way wye galvanized fittings – Allows 4 pipes to join at a common junction at different angles.
  • 4 way cross galvanized fitting – Has 4 outlets aligned in perpendicular directions, allowing 4 pipes to meet at 90 degree angles.
  • Galvanized 4 way tee- Has 3 outlets coming from the sides and 1 coming from the top or bottom.

Black Pipe Fittings

Black iron pipe fittings are made of cast or ductile iron and have a dark grey or black finish. They are used for indoor plumbing, HVAC, and compressed air systems where corrosion protection is not required.

Common 4 way black pipe fittings include:

  • 4 way cross black iron fittings.
  • Black iron 4 way tees.
  • 4 way galvanized wye black fittings – Wye fittings are often offered in galvanized for corrosion resistance and black for indoor use.
