IDENTIFYING FITTINGS AND USING JOINT CONNECTIONS FOR RIGID COPPER TUBING
This learning event illustrates fittings used for rigid copper tubing (DWV). This learning event also explains how to make a soldered joint connection on rigid copper.
The illustration below shows fittings for rigid copper tubing (DWV).
Joint connections for rigid copper tubing (DWV) are made with flux, solder, and a source of heat. The flux permits the even spreading of molten solder over the surfaces to be soldered. The molten solder flows into the space between the fitting and the tubing.
Steps for making the joint connection. Flux, 50-50 solder, and a torch are needed to make the joint. Use the following steps:
