Reducing Tee Butt Welded Fittings
Branches of tees have two types:Equal tee and Reducing tee.These two types tees have same functions,but reducing tee has one more function:it can reduce the flow of the gas or fluids.Butt welded fittings are the most used fittings in many applications because the size range of the BW fittings is big.
Reducing tee is a popular type of tees,because it ont only can change the direction of pipes,but also can reduce the flow of gas or fluids.Butt welded fittings are popular because of the strong and permanent connection.
Steel pipe tee is a T-shaped pipe fitting with three branch pipes. It is used to divide pipes to adjust flow and change direction.Tees could be butt welded fittings or forged fittings.
The end of Butt welded fittings are connected to the pipe system by butt welding.Butt weld fittings provide permanent leak-proof performance.BW fittings could made from seamless or welded pipe,and then through several processes formed to get the shape of pipe fittings.The type of the ends could be PE(plain end),BE(bevelled end) and THD(threaded end).
The two types of tee are Equal and Reducing.
Equal diameter tee, also known as straight tee, the branch diameter of the tee is the same as the pipe diameter of the tee.
The reducing tee has two outlets cut at 90 degrees with the main pipe, and the size of the branch pipe is smaller than the port of the pipeline.
