The eccentric reducer is another type of reducer, which is different from concentric reducer.The two ends of the concentric reducer are on the same center line, and only one end of the eccentric reducer is on the same center line.So the shape of the eccentric reducer looks like | \.
Due to the shape of the eccentric reducer, it is often used in horizontal piping systems.For example, if you use a eccentric reducer in the water draining piping, you have to tilt the pipe and reducer to get it to drain . or you have to recalculate and arrange different pipe support systems when you use a concentric reducer to connect the two pipes. So the Horizontal piping reducers are always eccentric, they are better choice for bottom flat or top flat .
In the butt welded pipe reducer market, the concentric reducer quantity is higher than the eccentric reducer.Reason: 1.Concentric reducer is cheaper than eccentric reducer.2. In welding, concentric reducer installation is convenient, no need to consider the alignment.
