Butt Weld Fittings in a layman’s language is nothing but a welding technique used to connect welds which are nearly parallel and do not overlap each other. The easiest and reliable way of joining steals without using additional components is the butt welding technique. Butt-weld fittings are manufactured in accordance with nationals and international product standards as well as it can be produced as per the customer requirements. A butt weld pipe fitting seems to be simply a product, but many things can go wrong during design and manufacturing, causing problems in the long run such as scratched inner surface, thinner wall on outside radius, oval fittings, out of specs welding end finish, visible cracks, and improper chemical composition of the steel grade.
Butt Weld Fittings are designed and manufactured to standards which require a bursting strength equal to or more than that of seamless pipes of the same material specification, wall thickness, nominal diameter and their allowable working maximum , allowable working pressures, etc.
Butt Weld Fittings are manufactured for applications requiring the reliability of a properly welded tubing system. They were developed specially for installation using automatic, orbital Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding equipment.
