Butt Weld Fittings
Buttweld fittings are an important part of the industrial piping system to change direction, branch off, or to mechanically join equipment to the system. It’s a reliable and economical way of connecting pipe pieces together without having to use additional components.
Socket Weld Fittings
A socket weld is a pipe attachment detail in which a pipe is inserted into a sunken area of a valve, fitting or flange (or vice-versa), and is mainly used for small pipe diameters.
Threaded fittings are an attachment detail in which a pipe is screwed into the sunken area of a valve, fitting or flange (or vice-versa) and are mainly used for small pipe diameters.
Grooved fittings allow for two pipes to join where each side has a grooved ending. The two pipe ends are fitted with a rubber gasket and around it, a two-part coupling is screwed together with two bolts and nuts.
Flanges are usually welded or screwed. Flanged fittings are made by bolting together two flanges with a gasket between them to provide a seal. A flange is a method of connecting pipes, valves, pumps and other equipment to form a piping system. It also provides easy access for cleaning, inspection or modification.
Swage nipples are used as adapters from one connection type to another, with a reducing pipe nipple on one side, they are used to connect two different sized fittings.
Depending on the industry in which the fitting will be used, pipe fittings are available in various materials such as aluminum, cast iron, steel, copper, plastic, brass, and stainless steel and other types of alloys.
