Malleable Iron Pipe Fittings
Malleable iron pipe fittings are durable, temperature resistant and they can also withstand high mechanical stress making them greatly popular in plumbing and pipework industries. These types of fittings are often galvanised with a standard jointing technology enabling them to be used safely in a broad range of applications.
There are many advantages of using malleable iron pipe fittings including shock and corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. If the fittings are galvanised with highly pure zinc they can be used to transport drinking water. The narrow threads help to achieve precise alignment when sealing, reducing the likelihood of leakage from the pipes.
RS have a great range of malleable iron pipe fittings to meet all your plumbing and pipework requirements.
There are many different malleable iron fitting types available depending on the application they are required. Pipe fittings are available self-colour (black malleable fittings) or galvanised finish and include:
Applications for Malleable Iron Pipe Fittings
- Commercial vehicle construction
- Machines for paper production
- Gas lines in petrol stations
- Oil, cooling and lubrication pipes
- Gas emulsion and pressurised air pipe work
- Sprinkler and gas fire extinguishing systems
- Cooling and air conditioning

What is the difference between malleable iron and cast iron?
Malleable iron can be bent and shaped making it easy to be machined. Cast iron is stronger making it more difficult to machine.
