  Butt welded Pipe fittings such as carbon steel and stainless steel offer many advantages compared to threaded and socketweld fittings. The later are only available up to 4-inch nominal size whereas butt weld fittings are available in sizes from ½” to 72”. Some of the benefits of weld fittings are;

  Welded connection offers more robust connectionContinuous metal structure adds to the strength of the piping systemButt-weld fittings with matching pipe schedules, offers seamless flow inside the pipe. A full penetration weld and properly fitted LR 90 Elbow, ASTM Carbon Steel Butt Welded Pipe Fitting Reducer, Concentric reducer etc. offers gradual transition via welded pipe fitting.All buttweld pipe fittings have beveled ends as per ASTM standard. This helps create full penetration weld without any extra preparation needed for the butt weld fitting.

  Butt weld pipe fittings are most commonly available in carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel alloy, aluminum and high yield material. High yield butt weld carbon steel pipe fittings are available in A234-WPB, A234-WPC, A420-WPL6, Y-52, Y-60, Y-65, Y-70.  All WPL6 pipe fittings are annealed and are NACE MR0157 and NACE MR0103 compatible.
