Difference between socket welding and butt welding
There are various connecting types for the steel pipes,pipe fittings and flanges: socket weld,butt weld,threaded and so on.Socket welding and butt welding are the quite popular of those.However,you might be confused about which one would be best for your pipeline system,since both of them seem to have their own pros and cons.Therefor,we have taken the responsibility of drawing up a comparison between them.
Socket welding refers to the pipe into the valve body for welding,mostly used for 2″ below the carbon steel pipe, stainless steel pipe welding.
Butt welding refers to the use of resistance heat along the whole face of the two workpieces together at the same time welding,is widely used in the workpiece welding.
