A reducer bushing is a type of fitting used in electrical applications to connect two conduits of different sizes together. It is designed to reduce the size of the opening in a conduit, allowing for a transition from a larger diameter to a smaller diameter.
- Standard: UL 514B
- Material: Brass, Electro -galvanized steel, Aluminum alloy, Hot dip galvanized steel
The reducer bushing typically has two ends with different diameters. The larger end is inserted into the larger conduit, while the smaller end connects to the smaller conduit. The ends of the bushing may be threaded or non-threaded, depending on the specific application and the type of connection required.
Reducer bushings are available in various materials such as metal (e.g., brass, stainless steel). They are commonly used in plumbing systems, HVAC installations, and electrical wiring to adapt or transition between different conduit sizes.
The purpose of a reducer bushing is to facilitate a smooth and secure connection between conduits of different sizes. It allows for the efficient flow of fluids or the proper routing of electrical wiring while maintaining the desired diameter throughout the system.
