Socket Weld Tee-Straight Tee,Reducing Tee,Lateral Tee

Socket weld tee is a kind of high pressure three-way pipe connection fitting,it has a branch from the main run of the pipe that can change fluid direction.Like the other fittings,it has a trapezoidal area where the pipe can inserted into the tee branch and weld together.It is formed by round forged steel or ingot processed by lathe and it commonly used in small diameter systems.Socket weld tee has T-shaped or Y-shaped,commonly divided into equal tee and reducing tee.We can supply & manufacture equal tee,reducing tee,straight tee,Y tee.

ANSI ASME B16.11 socket weld equal tee

ANSI ASME B16.11 socket weld equal tee

Socket weld equal tee: Three branches of socket weld tee have same diameters.

Socket weld reducing tee: The branch diameter is smaller than main diameter.

Socket weld straight tee: A straight tee means a tee of pipe fitting which the branch outlet has a 90 degree direction turning from the main pipe of the tee.It can be equal tee or reducing tee.

Socket weld lateral tee

Socket weld lateral tee

Socket weld lateral tee:  The lateral tee divide two branch pipes:one is same direction with the inflow pipe,the other have a 45 degree angle to inflow pipe.

Socket weld Y-shaped tee: The Y-shaped tee has two branch pipes at a 45 degree angle,and the two branch pipes are symmetrical to the centerline of the inflow pipe which means the two outflow direction are both at 22.5 degree to the inflow direction.
