Standard dimensions for piping reducers and expanders are recommended by ASME/ANSI standards.
Piping reducer
Piping reducers and expanders are tapered pipe joints used to join two pipes of different sizes together.
When the upstream pipe is larger in size, the joint is called a pipe reducer. As the flow goes from a large pipe to a 'reduced' pipe size.
Similarly, when the upstream pipe is smaller, flow goes from a small pipe to an 'expanded' pipe size. Hence in this case the tapered joint is called an 'expander' in this case.
