What Are the Advantages of Threaded Pipes?
When you’re choosing fittings for the pipes in your facility, there are a lot of factors to think about. You need to make sure you’re opting for a strong connector, but it also needs to be one that doesn’t come with a hefty price tag or present installation difficulties. With that said, consider the advantages of threaded pipes—a solution to all those problems.
No Installation Skills Required
Pipe installation ranges in difficulty from “anyone can do it” to “needs ultra-specialized certifications.” When you decide to use threaded pipes and fittings, you won’t need someone with top-tier qualifications to install pipes, and, more importantly, maintain those pipes. This saves you money on the initial hiring of contractors, as well as on continued upkeep.
Instead of spending more and waiting for a specialized technician to visit your facility, any maintenance worker who understands pipes can install, maintain, and replace threaded pipe fittings.
The Economic Option
In addition to saving money on the employee side of things, you’ll also save on the components themselves. When you use plastic piping, such as HDPE or PVC, you won’t need to spend nearly as much on materials. Metal piping is better for high-pressure situations but unnecessary in most other applications. There’s no need to pay more if there isn’t a significant benefit associated, so save your business a bit of money by choosing injection-molded threaded parts.
Less Joining Force Is Needed
One big downside to metal pipes is that, in many cases, a welding torch is required to join pipes. This certainly creates a strong connection, but it also takes a lot of time. With threaded pipes, a simple screw-on motion is all that’s needed to attach, and detach, parts. This means less time spent on plastic pipe protector installation and the possibility for simple replacements when the time comes.
Now that you know the advantages of threaded pipe fittings, don’t hesitate to choose the best threaded fittings for your facility. You can find threaded pipe fittings in PVC, HDPE, or any number of other useful materials.
