When your installation needs black iron fittings, turn to the plumbing experts at Black iron is also great for heating and cooling applications, so you will be able to find the right kind of fitting, no matter what you are looking for.

Black iron is one of the toughest materials available, therefore it can be a bit expensive, even with our great pricing on fittings. Black iron pipe fittings can withstand the pressure and hazards associated with running gas lines to your home.

Black Iron Uses

Commonly referred to commonly as steel pipe (though not technically accurate), black iron pipe (BIP) can be applied in a variety of manners. Compatible with both water and gas, black iron is most widely used for fire sprinkler systems because the piping is so resistant to high temperatures. Though once more popular than it is today, you will still find black iron pipe/fittings in plumbing and HVAC systems in homes and commercial locations across the country. Water corrodes black iron, so it is not ideal for plumbing. The advantage of black iron is that, unlike steel, piping and fittings do not need to be welded together.

Types of Black Iron Fittings

The following is a list of the most common fittings you will come across:

  • Elbows – this part allows you to bend the supply line and redirect it. PlumbersStock offers 45 and 90-degree elbows in a variety of sizes.
  • Tees – when buying a black iron tee fitting, there are two basic types from which to choose. There are tees that connect pipes of the same diameter, and there are tees that connect smaller lines to larger ones. Make sure you get the right part.
  • Bushing reducers – this fitting allows you to extend a pipeline, but reduces it in the process.
  • Couplings - these black iron pipe fittings join two pipes together, and can be of the “reducing” variety. A coupling is made of one solid piece of black iron, which is one way in which it differs from the next type of fittings.
  • Unions – very similar to couplings, unions differ in that they are ideal fitting for quick maintenance. You can easily connect or disconnect the line without having to solder or weld it like you might with a coupling. It is capable of this because of its three part design that includes a both male and female ends, as well as a nut.
  • Plugs - also referred to as “caps”, they literally plug the end of a pipeline.

Black iron pipe fittings can be relatively expensive, but there are two ways that we recommend you reduce cost: (1) Shop at PlumbersStock for the best plumbing prices on the web. (2) Strategically plan your piping to cut down on the amount of black iron pipe and fittings required to complete the system.

What Is Malleable Iron?

In this context, malleable fittings are hardened to ensure that they can take the extreme pressure of twisting the parts into place. They are not made to be bent, and an attempt to do so can lead to cracking. These malleable pipe fittings are not meant to be welded, either.
