Buttwelding pipe fittings are processed by steel pipe or steel plate made shape as elbow, tee, reducer, bend, cross, stub end and cap. They are widely used in oil, natural gas, water conservancy, shipbuilding, construction and so on. We manufacture these fittings and inspect the dimensions tolerance as per ASME B16.9 standard.
This kind of pipe fitting would be made by a process known as hot forming. This would include bending the pipe and then forming it in to a shape. The starting material of this fitting would be a pipe that would first be cut in to length. This would then be heated and molded in to specific shapes with the help pf dies. In addition, heat treatment would also be done in order to get the desired mechanical properties and removed residual stresses.
