The eccentric reducer is another kind of reducer which is different from the concentric reducer.As we know,the concentric reducer has two ends in same centerline,the two ends of eccentric reducer have one side in same level.So the shape of the eccentric reducer looks like | \ .
Because of its shape,the eccentric reducer is always used in horizontal piping systems.For example,if you use a con 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 welding pipe reducer market,the concentric reducer quantity is higher than the eccentric reducer.
The reason : 1. The price of the concentric reducer is cheaper than the eccentric one.
2.In the welding,the concentric reducer is easy to install,no need to consider the alignment.
