Reducing Threaded Bushings
Reducing threaded bushings are a type of bushing that is used to connect two pieces of equipment or piping that have different-sized threads. This type of bushing has an outer diameter (OD) that is the same size as the larger piece of equipment or pipe thread and an inner diameter (ID) that is the same size as the smaller piece of equipment or pipe thread. This allows for a smooth connection between the two pieces without having to use adapters.

Why Use Reducing Threaded Bushings?
There are several reasons why you might need to use a threaded bushing. One common reason is if you need to connect two pieces of equipment or piping that have different-sized threads but you don’t want to use an adapter. Another reason might be that you need to replace a damaged or worn bushing in a piece of equipment or piping. Whatever the reason, reducing bushings can be a helpful way to make a connection between two pieces of equipment or piping.
Purchase Reducing Bushings
If you need to use a reducing threaded bushing, there are a few things that you’ll need to do in order to properly install it. First, you’ll need to determine the size of both the outer diameter (OD) and the inner diameter (ID) of the bushing. Next, you’ll need to find a bushing that has those same dimensions. Once you have the right-sized bushing, you can then thread it onto the larger piece of equipment or pipe. Finally, you can thread the smaller piece of equipment or pipe into the bushing.
