Socket Weld Connections are available in different types such as elbow, coupling, reducer, tee, cross etc. Geometry of socket weld fitting is somewhat compact and the right angle formed in eblows and Tees are more abrupt than with a short radius butt weld eblow.
Overview of Socket Weld Fittings
socket weld fittings in 3000 lb & 6000 lb pressure rating. We offer forged carbon steel (A105 & A105N), Stainless Steel & Nickel Alloy materials. The video below is a brief overview of socket weld fittings.
Pressure & Temperature Rating of Socket Weld Fitting
Forged Carbon Steel Socket weld pipe fitting is considered a high pressure pipe fitting when compared to a malleable iron fitting. 6000 lb pressure class is also called schedule 160 pipe fitting. See the table below for pressure and temperature rating of socket weld pipe fitting including SS & Carbon Steel material.
Table below shows comparison of high pressure pipe fitting to a standard pipe schedule
