Wich is the best way to make a connection between a small drain pipe to a bigger one like the example below.
A concentric reducer, eccentric reducer, reducing tee, reducing cross, ...
I would like to connect like a "saddles connection" ( not sureif ti is he term) without any reduction, so i could connnect for e.g. 1/2" pipe to 4" pipe
(not sure if this is the right term ) *
How can you connect a 1/2" pipe to a 4" without any reduction?
Even a pipe saddle has a reduction. Where in your image is this requirement?
Here i have some more examples:
In your image i see a pressure indicator i think, how you connect it to the pipe ? You just add a coupling ?
Connections for components like; pressure gages, drains, solenoid valves, temperature sensors, RTDs, etc., are not normally categorized as needing a "reducer".
These types or connection as usually done using one of two methods:
#1 Drill hole and weld or thread in a close nipple of required size.
#2 Drill hole and weld or thread in an olet.
Exactly that, we use to make a hole and weld the nipple, but i dont know wich is the best way to do it on solidworks routing. When i try to add a nipple with a smaller size solidworks changes the pipe diameter. How is configured your nipple or thread at SW routing ?
Sorry, we are not using routing to do this as I do not believe it is possible.
We do all of our piping manually.
You can do it by either making a second route in your ASM.
The second method is preferable though, namely by using an olet feature, I even made variations of nipple and socks that adhere to solidworks olet design, which you can then use to make the necessary branching line .
Thanks for the help Peter, do you might to share one model that contains those examples that you said ?
