Reducer 90° PVC Fitting Cover
Brand : Proto / JM / Speedline
- Unit Of Measure:
- Pair (2 Halves)
Reducer 90° PVC Fitting Covers fit over 90° elbow fittings which must accommodate different sized pipes at each end of the elbow. They’re called “Reducers” because they accept larger pipe from one angle and smaller pipe from the other. The items’ names use standard PVC cover sizings (see sizing chart here, but start with an “R” for “Reducer”.
Reducer 90° PVC Fitting Covers are split in half, so they always come in pairs (Left & Right). #R10 and #R11 will reduce #10 and #11 pipes to pipes as small as size #3, while #R12 and #R13 will reduce #12 and #13 pipes to pipes as small as size #7.
Pre-marked cutting lines let you trim the PVC elbow reducer fitting cover to the desired reduced size. So, for example, #R13 will reduce #10 pipe to #9, #10, #11, #12, or #13 after you cut off some of the reducing cone, or will reduce all the way to #7 without any cutting.
To reduce 2" pipe (at 90° angle) to 1" pipe, and 1" thickness of pipe insulation is being installed, order #R11 (going with the result for the larger-sized pipe on the PVC Fitting Size Chart). Cut one side of the reducer cone completely off and cut the other end's reducer cone to size #9 (following the markings).
To reduce 3" pipe (at 90° angle) to 2" pipe, and 1" thickness of pipe insulation is being installed, order #R13 (again, referencing the larger-sized pipe’s PVC fitting size). Cut one side of the reducer cone completely off and cut the other end's reducer cone to size #11, following the markings.
