Corrosionpedia explains Dielectric FittingA dielectric fitting is specifically designed to join two types of metal pipestogether without the need for soldering. A dielectric fitting offers a barrier between the pipes, breaking all galvanized current and preventing corrosion in the pipes.

What is a dielectric flange? Dielectric flanges are installed between pipes made from dissimilar metals to help prevent accelerated deterioration and corrosion. Each includes a union nut, 2 tailpieces, and a gasket. They are ideal for use in air and water conditioners, hot water storage tanks, processing tanks, and steam, gas, andwater piping.

What do u mean by dielectric? Dielectric, insulating material or a very poor conductor of electric current. When dielectrics are placed in an electric field, practically no current flows in them because, unlike metals, they have no loosely bound, or free, electrons that may drift through the material. Instead, electric polarization occurs.

What is a union connection? Pipe Union is a type of fitting equipment designed in such a way to unite two pipes which can be detached without causing any deformation to the pipes. Any kind of small diameter piping connections requiring a positive seal andeasy assembly as well as disassembly are made with the help of pipe union.
