Butt Welding Pipe Fittings
What are butt welding pipe fittings?
Butt welding pipe fittings are the pipe fittings have the connecting end for butt welding(BW).It is designed for changing pipe direction and pipe diameter,branching or ending a pipe system.The butt welding pipe fitting end is connected to the end of pipes or pipe fittings by butt welding joint,it can also be connected to weld neck flange.Butt welding pipe fittings are used to connect with steel pipes,pipe fittings or flanges which have the same size and same schedule butt welding ends.The ends of butt welding pipe fittings are plain ends or bevel ends.
The butt welding pipe fittings could be seamless or welded.The seamless butt welding fitting means there is no welding seam on the body of the pipe fitting when manufacturing,it is usually produced from the seamless steel pipes.The welded butt welding pipe fitting means there is a welding seam on the body of the pipe fitting when manufacturing,usually,it is produced from the welded pipes or formed steel plates.Commonly the butt welding pipe fittings nominal size more than 26 inchs are welded butt welding pipe fittings,and smaller butt welding fittings are seamless one.

Advantages of butt welding pipe fittings:
- Comparing to other types of steel pipe fittings,butt welding pipe fittings has advantages:
- Butt welding joint is permanently leakproof and strong.
- Continuous steel structure of the joints between the pipes and fittings have a good strength in the piping system.
- The butt welding pipe fittings commonly have a smooth surface and gradual directional changes,it will decrease the pressure losses and turblence of the system,and protect from the corrosion and erosion.
- The butt welding pipe fittings have a lower cost in bugdet.
- The butt welding joints have a smaller space in the system.
