A Socket Weld Fittings is a pipe attachment detail in which a pipe is inserted into a recessed area of a Valve, fitting or flange. Once correctly inserted, fillet type sealing welds are applied to join the pipe to the fitting.

Different from buttweld fittings, Socket Weld fittings are mainly used for small pipe diameters (Small Bore Piping); generally, for piping whose nominal diameter is NPS 2 or smaller.

 

These fittings are commonly called SW pipe fittings that include elbows, tees, cross, caps, coupling and union.

 

Socket welds can be used to change the direction of travel for pipe networks as well as join pipes at different angles and of different diameters.

A union is a socket or threaded fitting which allows the pipe work to be separated and reconnected without any horizontal movement in the pipe. It can be a standalone pipe fitting connecting two pieces of pipe.
