ASTM A234 standard steel pipe fittings

 

ASTM A234 standard steel pipe fittings have been widely applied in pipeline systems, it includes carbon and alloy steel material.
It covers steel fittings of seamless and welded types. Steel Pipe fittings are applied in pressure pipelines and in pressure vessel fabrications.
ASTM A234 specification has many grades, such as WPB, WPC, WP5, WP9 WP11, WP12, WP22, WP91 and so on.
In these standard Grade WPB is the most common material used for medium and high temperature pipelines. W means weldable, P means pressure, B is grade b, refer to the minimum yield strength.

 

Butt Weld Fittings

 

Butt weld fittings are manufacture by seamless or welded pipe. For pipe fittings manufacturers, the forming process of welded pipe and seamless pipe is basically same. Butt welded fittings can be divided into carbon steel butt welded fittings and stainless-steel butt-welded fittings
Butt Weld Fittings include elbows, tees, cross, caps and reduces. These fittings are the most common type of welded pipe fitting and are specified by nominal pipe size and pipe schedule. Buttweld fittings are manufacture by seamless or welded pipe and are formed to get the shape of elbows, tees and cross etc.

 

ASTM A234 WPB STD Buttweld Elbow

 

Elbow is a pipe fitting that changes the direction of piping. According to the Angle, there are 45° and 90°180° three most commonly used. Elbow material can be divided into carbon steel, alloy steel and stainless-steel.

According to the production method, it can be divided into pushing, pressing, forging, casting, etc.

According to its radius of curvature, there are long radius elbow and short radius elbow. Long radius elbow refers to its radius of curvature is equal to 1.5 times the outside diameter of the pipe, that is, R=1.5D; A short radius elbow means that its radius of curvature is equal to the outer diameter of the pipe, that is, R= 1.0d.(D is the diameter of the elbow, and R is the radius of curvature).
