Transitions are swaged tubes that taper from a small diameter to a larger diameter. They are available with either a Long (14º) taper, or a Short (30º) taper. Normally, a 2" long straight section is provided at the small end. Transitions are made to order and are specified by the small diameter. To calculate the length of the tapered section, subtract the small diameter from the large diameter and multiply by 4.07 (Long) or 1.87 (Short).
Long Transition Length = (ODlarge - ODsmall) * 4.07
Short Transition Length = (ODlarge - ODsmall) * 1.87
To order, select the Large or Short taper. Then select your Outside Diameter (OD), then your Wall Thickness (gauge).
Material - 304SS
Gauge - 16, 0.065" wall
Small OD - 2"
Taper - Long
Part number would be RD-200-16-304-L
Once you have chosen the part number, choose the "Large End OD" using the pull down menu.
How To Specify Outlet Size
Find the outlet range as shown in the picture on the left for the specific sku. Then write a measurement on or between the range in 1/8" increments for Large End OD.
1. Select Transition Variant.
2. Find range, as shown below in black box.
3. Outlet Size can be 1 1/4" up to 1 3/4" in 1/8" increments.
4. In this example, outlet sizes can be:
5. Write in Outlet Size in text box above.
For intake and cooling systems, 6061 aluminum tubing is the most popular and versatile alloy. Our straight aluminum tubing is sold in the T6 condition, ideal for sawing, machining, sanding, and polishing. All of our bends are initially annealed to the "O" condition, which is necessary for bending. During the bending process, some work hardening in the bend area occurs, and the finished bends are classed as condition "F." The aluminum bends can be polished, but due to the softness of the aluminum, care must be taken not to remove too much material.
