From industrial to commercial facilities, pipes are used to move water, chemicals
, and gases from one point to another. The pipes can also be used with pipe fittings to change the direction of liquid flow, connect different pipes to extend flow, branch liquid, or change the pipe diameter. Welded pipe fittings, like their names suggest, are welded directly into the pipes to create the desired action (eg. changing the direction of flow). Note that the fitting and the pipe need to be made of compatible materials for welded fittings to work.
The main advantage of welding fittings is that they are permanent and leakproof. The continuity of the fitting and pipe helps to increase the plumbing work’s strength. It also helps to reduce turbulence and pressure. You will also like the fact that welded fittings use less space compared to using connectors. Some of the common types of welded fittings include the 45 degree elbow, reduced tee, cap, lateral, cross, and eccentric reducer.
