Features of Socket Weld Fittings

  • They are used only in conjunction with ANSI Pipe and are available in the same size range.
  • They are used in areas where pipe-work is permanent and are designed to provide good flow characteristics.
  • Socket weld fittings are produced to BS3799, ASTM A182 & ANSI B16.11 as applicable.
  • They are available in four pressure ratings: 2000lb, 3000lb, 6000lb & 9000lb.
  • The same range of high pressure fittings is also available with screwed ends with NPT threads.

Socket Weld Cap
  • 90o Elbow: Enables the pipe run to be turned through a right angle.
  • 45o Elbow: Enables the pipe run to be turned through 45 degrees.
  • Equal Tee: Allows the connection of a branch at right angles from the main pipe run. Female thread at all three connections.
  • Cross: Rarely used. Can bring 3 flow lines into one or act as a tee with a flow or pressure meter on the fourth leg.
  • Full Coupling: Used to connect two pipes.
  • Reduced Coupling: A shorter coupling.
  • Half Coupling: An even shorter coupling that is half the length of a full coupling.
  • Union: Used to connect two pipes. Used when easy or regular access is required. E.g. for cleaning.
