Large diameter aluminum fittings, for use with aluminum pipe sizes over 8″ in diameter, can be difficult to find. We have figured out a couple of ways.to help you to get what you need, in the quantity you need it in!
This 10″ x 6″ Concentric Reducer was manufacturer in Canada from forged aluminum – typically, only aluminum flanges cut from forged 6061-T6 but we also have eccentric reducers, caps and socket weld couplings cut from this very versatile alloy. These reducers are stamped with traceable heat numbers – just like flanges! They weigh in at about 16 lbs a piece which is almost double the American made concentric reducers (at 8.6 lbs each) – those are made from seamless 6061-T6. Different processes, different weights… The heavier Canadian reducers have a thicker wall through the body. If doubling the weight is not a concern, you have a choice! If the weight is a concern, we have an American manufacturer of concentric (and eccentric) reducers that we can call on for you.
Custom ordered items such as stub ends can often be imported from the USA. Made from domestic aluminum, fittings such as stub ends are often ready to be shipped from American manufacturers and be available for your crew to begin welding within about 8 to 10 days. If we need to get these made for you it could take a bit longer.
So, choices…. We specialize in finding the aluminum (and other alloy) products that you need to do your job right! Send us a note or an rfq and we will get to work finding the right products for your next project!
