y branch pipe fitting | y tee fitting | Galvanized Pipe Tee
Y Type Tees (pipe Y fittings), cast iron tees. The pipe fittings are shaped like a letter Y, with a 45° angle between the main outlet and branch outlet. Shunts fluids.
When several pipes meet, they form a branch connection. A tee or cross is an example of a complete fitting. A branch connection can also be in the form of an “O”, which attaches directly to the pipe.
Six inches and smaller are common for threaded fittings. In the larger diameters, die sizes are not available, which is why the pipe end needs to be threaded with a male-type connection.
In water supply systems, gas pipelines, etc., cast iron fittings connect water and gas pipes.
