The mechanical tee has the same function as the ordinary tee. Mechanical tees are divided into grooved mechanical tees and threaded mechanical tees.
It can be used to directly connect branch pipes to steel pipes and has many applications in the installation of fire-fighting pipes systems and sprinkler pipes systems.
Mechanical tee can be used when splitting or merging is needed.
Firstly, open a hole on the steel pipe with a tapping machine, and then snap the mechanical tee into the hole, and the circumference of the hole is sealed by a sealing ring along the pipe wall. When the mechanical tee is connected, the gap between the mechanical tee and the hole should be checked, all parts should be even, and then tightened in place; the distance between the mechanical tee openings should not be less than 1m.
