chemical plants

Found in everything from household items to advanced medical devices, chemicals contribute to longer, healthier, and better lives for people around the globe. These materials are often processed in corrosive, pressure-containing, and extreme-temperature environments, which means storage and transportation equipment must be built tough.

Strengthen your chemical application with fittings and adapters from SHF Inc. Our products are manufactured from robust, sanitary, and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which improves equipment and process media transfer line performance and durability.

The Chemical Processing Performance Advantage

Since chemical manufacturing facilities operate around the clock, equipment surfaces are constantly in contact with wet, caustic, abrasive, and acidic substances. For specific processes, they must withstand extreme hot or cold temperatures and be easy to clean.

Stainless steel pipe fittings for chemical industry applications offer many benefits. This family of iron-based alloys is tough, corrosion-resistant, and hygienic. Exact performance characteristics vary by grade, but common traits include:

  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Doesn’t rust
  • Durable
  • Withstands heat
  • Resists fire
  • Sanitary
  • Non-magnetic, in specific grades
  • Recyclable
  • Resists impact

Stainless steel has a high chromium content, which produces invisible and self-healing oxide film on a material’s exterior. A non-porous surface blocks moisture intrusion, reducing crevice corrosion and pitting issues. The application of a simple antibacterial cleaner removes harmful bacteria and viruses.

Effective Chemical Processing Fluid Control Solutions 

SHF Inc. manufactures standard and custom stainless steel fittings and adapters for chemical applications. From safeguarding against corrosion to preserving process media purity, our collection of products can overcome any challenge.

Standard fittings and adapters aren’t always the best choice for every application. Obtain a bespoke solution for your fluid control needs with assistance from SHF Inc.

Our in-house fabrication department is composed of experienced personnel and advanced machining and welding equipment. They can manufacture custom products tailored to specific requirements.

SHF’s stainless steel valves for chemical industry applications securely cut off fluid flow coming through hoses. Built to withstand harsh conditions, there’s no concern for failure. Our hydraulic fittings for chemical applications are perfect for operations of any size, from full-scale production to research labs.

Meeting Chemical Industry Fluid Control Needs

Low-quality fittings and adapters curb chemical processing capabilities. Poorly machined connections have leak paths, and nonconforming walls may burst under pressure. That’s why our SHF Inc. puts quality first. Our CNC machines cut threads with precision. Part numbers, serial numbers, batch numbers, cheat codes, and any other form of traceability can be laser inked onto products. On-site hose burst testing up to 24,000 pounds-per-square-inch is available.

All items we manufacture meet ISO 9002:2016 quality assurance standards for installation, production, and service. Material is acquired from reputable suppliers, and compliance is verified upon arrival. Quality control personnel use precise testing and inspection equipment to confirm every product surpasses applicable industry standards or customer specifications. All orders are audited for accuracy before shipment.


Our fittings and adapters are perfect for any chemical processing application. Examples include:

  • Liquid Treatment
  • Heat Transfer
  • Mixing
  • Product Distribution
  • Evaporative Cooling
  • Evaporating and Drying
  • Distillation
  • Mass Separation
  • Mechanical Separation
  • Product Distribution

Our core focus is hydraulic fittings for chemical applications, but we can manufacture and ship just about any fluid control device. An extensive stainless steel inventory ensures we have the part you need in stock and ready to ship. All orders received before 3 p.m. Central Standard Time ship the same day.
