Oddball steel fitting

Anyone know what this fitting is called? I’ve spent too much time thumbing through grainger catalogs. It’s a combi drain for 2 apartments with the top outlet feeding into a sink then vents.

    IDK But it looks like a tapped TY on it back.. a tapped TY is normally used on the vertical to pick up a sink of sorts

    Looks like a San Tee. A vertical drain should tie into a horizontal run with a wye or combo fitting.

    It's a Double Wye or a double Tee.

    Back rotted out from standing water. We are planning to use a y adaptor, a combi San tee with sweep 90, 90, and ferncos after cutting old fitting out.

    Not a whole lot can be done. I have to meet those pipes and all are buried under 6” of concrete, brick, and mortar. I would have preferred if the apartments didn’t share drains and the tubs weren’t kissing each other at the drains.

    I would say that’s a 45 vented tub wye. It’s available in no-hub.
