What is Buttweld Fittings?
A buttweld fitting is a weldable pipe manufactured by the hot or cold forming process, which means that it is bent and moulded to the correct shape. These products are also heat-treated to remove residual stresses to achieve specific mechanical properties. SS 304/304l/304H Buttweld Fittings consist of tees, eccentric reducers, concentric reducers, long radius elbows, etc. Buttweld Fittings offer seamless flow inside the pipe that matches with offer schedule. It offers gradual transition via welded pipe fitting by a full penetration weld and properly fitted LR 90 Elbow concentric reducer.
SS 304/304l/304H Buttweld Fittings are useful in forming a much vigorous connection. There are various types of Buttweld Fittings, which are suitable for all pipe sizes. The finish of all buttweld fittings is slant, 5mm for ferritic stainless steel, exceeding wall thickness 4 mm for austenitic stainless steel. Also, stainless steel grade 304, 304L, and 304H Buttweld fittings have beveled ends are required. SS 304/304l/304H Buttweld Fittings are available in multiple shapes material grades and dimensions.
What are the properties of Buttweld Fittings?
SS 304/304L/304H Buttweld Fittings have excellent weldability with and without fillers. Stainless steel buttweld fittings offer excellent corrosion resistance to work in a wide range of atmospheric environments. Also, its outstanding oxidation resistance makes them suitable for intermittent service of up to 870°C. These stainless steel buttweld flanges are resistant to carbide precipitation and good machining properties. It also offers higher strength at elevated temperatures & Excellent weldability with and without filler metals.
What are the applications of Buttweld Fittings?
SS 304/304l/304H Buttweld Fittings are useful in equipment manufacturing, architectural railings, pharmaceutical and chemical process equipment. It also has various usages in heat exchangers, springs, industrial fabrications, and petrochemical industry. Besides, stainless steel buttweld fittings are useful in oil and gas Industry, power generation plants, energy industry, and pulp & paper industry. Food processing industry, aerospace industry requires SS buttweld fittings.
What are the specifications of Buttweld Fittings?
SS 304/304l/304H Buttweld Fittings are most useful due to their significant performance. Buttweld Fittings are leakproof and hence valuable for oil refineries. Its continuous metal structure formed between pipe and fitting adds strength to the system. It has a smooth inner surface, and gradual directional changes reduce pressure losses and turbulence that minimize the effects of corrosion and erosion. It minimizes pressure drops and the turbulence inside the pipeline and provides a long service life.
