The most common types of HDPE pipe fittings are threaded fittings, butt weld pipe fittings and socket weld fittings. In this blog, we look at the benefits of all three, specifically butt welders, and how they can be used. A change in fluid flow through the tubes in one direction. A branch pipe that allows liquid to flow in two different directions. a narrowing of the pipe diameter. The end of the pipe and the connection of additional devices. Special Piping Materials designs all butt weld fittings in accordance with ASME standards. They are available in a variety of materials from specialized manufacturers. Probably the oldest method of connecting piping systems.
Threaded fittings are mainly used for small pipe diameters. They are mostly used in non-critical and low-cost applications. For example, domestic water systems and industrial cooling water systems often have threaded connections. Due to their susceptibility to fatigue damage and corrosion, they are rarely used in highly corrosive, high-pressure environments. When installed at low temperatures and pressures where there is little vibration that could affect the integrity of the connection, threaded connections are ideal. When a pipe is inserted into a depressed area of a valve, it is called a socket weld. They are typically used in situations where the pipe is permanent but of smaller dimensions. They are used in a variety of industrial processes such as: When transporting expensive, toxic or combustible materials where leakage will not be tolerated. It is not necessary to chamfer the pipe ends. This is due to the square cut nature of both the HDPE pipe fittings and the hose. This simplifies assembly and soldering. Less likely to leak than threaded fittings. The metal used to weld the fitting cannot enter the pipe hole. Because the bracket itself provides proper alignment, no temporary tack weld is required. The main disadvantage is that the fitting can be susceptible to corrosion or deposits due to possible internal gaps and cracks. This can cause operational and maintenance problems. Hot or cold forming, also known as bending and forming, is the process used to create a butt weld fitting. In addition, they are subjected to a heat treatment in order to achieve special mechanical properties and to reduce residual stresses. Butt weld pipe fittings must be chamfered at the ends, and the exact shape of the chamfer is determined by the wall thickness of the tube. A butt weld fitting can be made from a variety of exotic materials.
