Inconel Pipe Fittings

Do you know pipe fitting? What its different types? And how they made of? So, you are at the right place. Here we will discuss all of this. The piping system is mainly used to supply fluid from one location to another. In this, fittings play an important role, because with fittings we cannot change the direction of flow, branch off, increase/decrease bore diameter of the pipe and many other things. So for this purpose, Pipe Fittings are used in the piping system.

There are several types of pipe fittings are used in the piping system, made up of different material grades, sizes, types, shapes, and other specifications. The most broadly used pipe fittings are Inconel Buttweld Pipe Fittings and Inconel Forged Pipe Fittings. In this article we discuss these pipe fittings before that let’s see the benefits of fittings:

Benefits of Pipe Fittings:

  • Minimize the pressure drop and the turbulence inside the piping system
  • Ease in handling and easy to install
  • Provide strong and leak-proof connections.
  • Excellent working life.


Grade Inconel

Inconel is a nickel-chromium alloy with addition of molybdenum, silicon, and other earth elements. The Inconel has some of the characteristics like excellent corrosion resistance, good resistance to oxidation and nitration at high elevated temperatures.

Apart from this Inconel alloys possess good welding characteristics and can be weld using standard welding practices like gas tungsten arc welding. Inconel Alloy grades are available in the wide range includes Inconel 600, Inconel 601, Inconel 625, Inconel 718, Inconel 800, and Inconel 825.


Inconel Buttweld Fittings

Buttweld Fitting is named obtain from a technique that they attached with the piping system. In buttweld fitting, both ends are beveled and attached by butting and welding across the bevel. This connection is one of the strongest connections than other types of buttweld fittings. This connection was created on-site by welding ends of the pipe.

There are different types of Inconel Buttweld Fittings with their material grades are manufactured. The various types of Inconel Buttweld Fittings are as follow,

  • Inconel 600 Buttweld Elbow 45/90/180 Deg. Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 601 Buttweld Equal/Unequal Tee Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 625 Buttweld Equal/Reducing Cross Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 718 Buttweld Concentric/Eccentric Reducer Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 800 Pipe Cap Buttweld Fittings
  • Inconel 825 Stub End Buttweld Fittings


Inconel Forged Fittings

Forged Pipe Fittings are broadly known as socket weld fittings. A pipe is inserted into a recessed area of fittings and done weld on it that forms the socket weld (forged) fittings. These Inconel Forged Fittings are used only for those pipes whose nominal pipe size is less than 2 (NPS 2). Socket Weld Fittings are classified into various types:

  • Inconel 825 Forged Elbow 45/90 Deg. Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 800 Socket Weld Tee Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 718 Cross Forged Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 600 Socket Weld Branch/Lateral/Nipple Outlet Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 601 Socket Weld Full/Half Couplings Pipe Fittings
  • Inconel 625 Forged Reducer Pipe Fittings
