This is a male-to-female reducer application that we use for different kinds of systems. The high-quality brass material provides very good applicability to normal fitting and plumbing applications.

Also from the same seller, you can find different sizes and types of threaded reducer applications that are available.

Guide to Buy Threaded Reducer Applications

Threaded reducer applications may seem like very basic systems. But when you are buying these systems, you need to make different kinds of considerations.

  • Thread Type: This is the first that you need to consider. There are different types of threads are available. They are standard and you need to choose the same thread types. The most common thread type is NPT. But there are threaded reducer applications to make conversions between different thread types.
  • Material: Also, there are different materials for threaded reducer applications. The most common materials are 304 steel and brass. We use 304 steel for high strength applicaitons to higher pressure and temperatures. For example, to apply to steam systems, it will be better to use 304 steel. And also if you will use them for ordinary water plumbing applications, you can consider the brass material. They are for lower pressure and temperature applications.
  • Male and Female Connections: Which kinds of connections you will use these threaded reducers? Female-to-male or male-to-female connections? Female means the threads are internal and male means the threads are external. So, you need to be sure about which kind of cınenction that you will make.
  • Size: Reducers are generally adapters. You can make reducing between SAE sizes such as 1/2″, 3/8″, 1″ so on. So, you can find threaded reducer applications between these sizes.
