ASME B16.11 3IN 3000# Soket Weld Elbow
Socket weld elbow (SW elbow) has 45 degree and 90 degree types, manufactured in forging processes and also has long radius (LR with 1.5 X OD) and short radius (SR with 1 X 0D) model, it has been a common socket weld fittings that used in the pipelines for changing the fluid directions.
What is Socket Weld Pipe Fittings
ASME B16.11 3IN 3000# Soket Weld Elbow is used for welding pipes and fittings including reducers, tees and elbows. Socket weld pipe fittings are used to permanently join pipes that are inserted into a recess in the fitting, flange or valve. A socket weld fittings is a pipe attachment detail. In this case, the pipe will be inserted in to a recessed area of a pipe, fitting, valve, or flange. In order to join the pipes or valves to the other sections of the pipe, seal welds of fillet type will be applied. So in some cases socket weld fittings is a good choice. This is because the benefits of great structural strength and high leakage integrity would be quite important factors that has to be taken in to consideration when designing your pipeline project.

How to describe socket weld pipe fittings dimensions correctly
In case you place an request for this kind fittings, you need to specify the OD dimensions and with pressure requirements (Or thickness schedule), socket weld fittings pressure ratings usually expressed in class 3000, class 6000, and class 9000. Socket weld pipe fittings usually simplified as SW pipe fittings, so you will see some descriptions like SW elbow, SW tees, SW couplings etc
Socket weld pipe fittings types
Like butt weld fittings, based on material types, socket weld fittings also ranged as stainless steel pipe fittings, carbon steel and alloy steel. Based on applications, it includes socket weld elbow, socket weld tee, and reducing tee, reducers, couplings, and SW flanges etc.
