Carbon Steel Buttweld fittings are important part of piping systems that allows to change the flow direction, reduce pipe size, and to branch off or attach the piping equipment. These fittings use welded or seamless pipe as staring material. These are shaped using hot and cold forming into reducer tees, elbows, olets and caps. Carbon steel is a popular material that used for the development of buttweld fittings due to its unique chemical and mechanical properties. Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings are specified by the schedule and size of pipes.
Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings contains higher iron, carbon content along with manganese, silicon and other elements like molybdenum, copper, aluminium, nickel and chromium. This excellent chemical composition offer higher strength and resistivity in any corrosive environments. Caron Steel alloy is differentiated in three types based on the chemical composition and properties. These types are, Low carbon steel, Medium carbon steel and High Carbon Steel.
Features of Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings:
Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings offer low strength and high ductility to withstand in hostile conditions. This feature makes them suitable for machining and welding process. These fittings are cost effective compared to other fittings as they need less maintenance and possess longer service life. The higher carbon content offers excellent hardness at higher pressure and temperature conditions. Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings offer leakproof and strong connection to perform efficiently in the piping systems. These buttweld fittings offer excellent resistivity and higher durability in reducing conditions. Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings offers various options for turn radium using long radius, short radium or 3R elbows to fit in different purposes. Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings reduces the turbulence and pressure drops inside the pipeline. Due to these features, these buttweld fittings are highly demanded in the diverse industrial sectors.
Applications of Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings:
These buttweld fittings are used in the structural shapes, construction, automobile, pipelines and bridge components. Due to excellent strength and wear resistance, these fittings are used in fuel processing, oil and gas processing, chemical equipment, power generation and other applications. Carbon Steel Buttweld Fittings are also used in the nuclear plant, boilers, heat exchangers, refineries etc.
