Pipe fittings are piping component used to change the direction of pipeline, branch off, reduce/increase pipe bore size, or blind the pipeline. The connections between pipes & their fittings are done through various methods, on that basis, the pipe fittings are classified in different types. Fittings are plays an important role in the piping system, without them we can’t provide fluid to a long distance.
Fittings are mainly divided into three types i.e. Buttweld Fittings, Socket Weld (Forged) Fittings and Threaded Weld Fittings. These fittings are manufactured from various material grade depend on their properties and applications. In this article, we will discuss Monel 400 Buttweld Fittings and Monel 400 Forged Fittings, widely used fittings in all types of piping systems. Before that, just discussed what are the benefits of pipe fittings?
Benefits of Pipe Fittings
MONEL is a trademark of Special Metals Corporation has made up of nickel and copper can be hardened by the cold working process. Monel 400 is famously known as Super Alloy Monel. UNS N04400 Monel Alloy has excellent forming and welding characteristics. So it can easily form into different shapes, and available in Monel 400 Buttweld Fittings & Monel 400 Buttweld Fittings.
Monel 400 pipe fittings can be weld using gas-arc welding, submerged arc welding, metal-arc welding, and gas-metal-arc welding.
Buttweld Fittings is one of the famous pipe fittings used in most of the critical applications. Two pipe sections are have beveled and attached with butting as well as welding by inserting pipes. This is one of the strongest connections in the piping system than forged or threaded weld connections. By a combination of grade Monel 400 and Buttweld Fittings, there are several types are available in the market as follow.
Forged pipe fittings are also called as socket weld pipe fittings. In this forged fitting, pipe inserted into a recessed area of fittings and done welding on it. Unlike buttweld fittings, Forged Fittings are mainly used for small pipe diameters i.e. NPS 2. Having a combination of Forged Fittings and Monel 400, different types of forged fittings are manufactured. Check below list:
