This pair of unusual fittings forming pipe crosses were found in an
University building. They appear to be bifurcated fittings allowing
the flow & return pipes to pass through each other and thus avoid
unsightly double pipe sets. Although with the need for reducing
sockets to be fitted, improved appearance is a matter of opinion.

After much research the Heritage Group have been unable to discover this
type of fitting illustrated in any of their old pipework & fittings catalogues.

If anyone has knowledge of the manufacturer of these
types of fittings please email the Webmaster.
