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:
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.
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,
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:
