This Anvil cross is a malleable iron pipe fitting with female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threads on all four ends for connecting and branching four pieces of pipe. The cross has NPT threads for creating tighter seals than straight threads. It is made of malleable iron, which has high tensile strength, and has a galvanized finish that resists rust in water, air, and steam applications. This class 150 fitting meets standards ASTM A-197, ASME B 1.20.1, and ASME B 16.3 for quality assurance. Class is a standard relating to tolerance, construction, dimension, and wall thickness, but it is not a direct measurement of maximum working pressure.
Pipe fittings are components used for connecting, terminating, controlling flow, and changing the direction of piping in many different industries. When purchasing pipe fittings, consider the application, as this will affect material type, shape, size and required durability. Fittings are available threaded or unthreaded, in many shapes, styles, sizes, and schedules (pipe wall thickness).
