Butt-Weld fittings offer various advantages over other forms of fittings. Welding the fitting to the pipe causes it to be leak-proof, adds strength, utilizes a small amount of space and minimizes the possibility of erosion and corrosion. TTIPL carries a large supply of butt-weld fittings conforming to ANSI B16.9 dimensions.
Socket-weld fittings are used in systems requiring exceptional strength of welded joints and are mainly used for small pipe diameters. These fittings have the advantage of providing strength similar to a welded joint while offering speed and efficiency when joining pipe, tube, fittings and valves together. Socket-Weld fittings can also be used in place of threaded fittings, causing the risk of leaks to be much smaller.
Outlet fittings are designed to be welded onto an existing “run” of pipe to provide a branch or “outlet” connection without having to cut run pipe and are typically described by two sizes: “run” by “outlet”.
