Benefits of Stainless Steel Forged Fittings
Suppliers of stainless steel forged fittings ensure that the product’s purpose is met and that the consumer receives all of the benefits.
SS Forged Fittings are generally more durable than their equivalents.
Castings cannot handle as much pressure as it can.
Due to their compact grain arrangement, forged steels are mechanically solid.
Forging prevents pores, shrinkage, cold pour problems, and cavities.
Can stainless steel be forged?
Steels such as stainless steel are excellent for forging. Forging stainless steel is very effective because it reacts well with the forging process. Forging enhances its strength and corrosion resistance, among other qualities. As a result of forging, grain flows continuously through the part.
What are the Benefits for High Pressure Forged Fittings?
In addition to being made from top-quality raw materials, high-pressure forged fittings can be used in a variety of applications. Forged fittings have a unique durability and consistency, as well as high pressure, and no imperfections.
Almost every industrial application that requires complex threaded connections can benefit from these High Pressure Fittings. Hydro testing can also be performed with it.
Chemical fertiliser manufacturing, nuclear energy, heat exchangers, petroleum gas industries, pharmacy surgical industries, and water gas-piping systems and refineries for petrochemicals.
Forged high pressure fittings are used in numerous applications where high temperatures are required. In high-pressure gas or fluid transportation, it is used.
As a result, it is widely used in industries such as gas and petrochemical production. As a result of its excellent welding and forming properties at high temperatures, it can be used in a variety of processes requiring temperatures up to 500°C. As well as making pharmaceutical-related equipment, vessels, equipment for refining oil, and so on, it is also used in other industries.
In addition to pharmaceutical equipment, vessels, and oil refinery equipment, these fittings can also be used in other industries.
Various tests are conducted to ensure that top quality products are available. There are tests for raw materials and radiography, as well as Third-Party Inspection Reports. Besides heat treatment maps and fumigation certificates, we also provide documentation.
In critical applications, forged fittings are subjected to high pressure and are available in stainless steel, duplex steel, and high nickel varieties Alloys, Alloy Steel and Titanium. We make threaded fittings forged to thread (NPT, BSP, BSPT) along with various varieties of socket welds.
In critical applications, forged fittings are subjected to high pressure and are available in stainless steel, duplex steel, and high nickel varieties gas industry shipbuilding, chemical machinery and so on.
Fittings used include elbows, tees, cross caps, caps, half couplings, and many others. As all of these forged fittings are designed to withstand high pressure, we refer to them as high pressure fittings.
Forgings flanges & fittings
What are Flanges & fittings?
Flanges and fittings are parts that connect pipes. Flange joints connect pipes with flanges to which the connecting pieces are bolted together. Flanges are generally raised rims or lips on fittings, but many flanged plumbing fittings themselves are known as flanges.
A forging process involves compressing metal using localized forces to shape it. It is either a hammer or a die that delivers the blows. A forge can be classified as cold forging, warm forging, or hot forging based on the temperature at which it is performed.
Applications of Stainless Steel Forged Fittings
Natural Gas and Petroleum
Oil and gas industries require materials with excellent corrosion resistance, flexibility, and strength. Stainless Steel Forged Fittings meet all criteria. Due to its strong resistance and durability to chloride stress corrosion cracking, Stainless Steel Forged Fittings are particularly well-suited for offshore applications at high pressures and extreme depths. Duplex is a common material for onshore pipes delivering corrosive substances. Due to this, the oil and gas industry remains the largest consumer of Stainless Steel Forged Fittings.
Development & Building
Forged stainless steel fittings revolutionise architectural design. In addition to their strength and aesthetic appeal, these grades are particularly suitable for roofs, façades, and bridges.
Stainless Steel Forged Fittings offer the form freedom and aesthetic adaptability needed to blend into a variety of situations and architectural styles. In addition to being durable, easy to maintain, and recyclable, stainless steel can be used with a variety of building technologies.
In the same way as automobile and pedestrian bridges, suspension bridge wires, cables, tie rods, railings, and bannisters can also be made of stainless steel forged fittings.
Desalination and Water Treatment
Desalination and water treatment applications require materials that can withstand the corrosive nature of water, liquids, and salt. In addition to its strength, corrosion resistance, long lifespan, and cost-effectiveness, duplexed stainless steel has benefits that transcend its initial investment.
The movement of goods and people is essential for many aspects of society. Vehicles such as boats, aeroplanes, trains, and automobiles use Stainless Steel Forged Fittings.
Tanks and trailers made of stainless steel are remarkably efficient, durable, and corrosion-resistant. Furthermore, they are less expensive than carbon steel alternatives.
Types of Metal Fittings

The two-ferrule design compensates for any tolerances in tube O.D., wall thickness, material hardness, and maintains leak-tight connections. Our extensive inventory of stainless-steel metal compression fittings includes union crosses, male elbow, tee elbow, nuts and more.
Brass hose barb fittings are made from 360CA brass. Brass barb fittings are often found in industrial markets such as air and water, particularly when they are used with rubber hoses, thermoplastic hoses, or polyurethane tubing. We offer hose barb fittings with a 150 PSI working pressure, regardless of the type of hose or tubing used.
Metal pipe fittings are offered by Polyconn in two types: brass and nickel-plated brass or stainless steel.
- Brass and nickel-plated brass pipe fittings are made from extruded CA 36000 and meet SAE, ASME, and ASA requirements. Pipe fittings made of brass and nickel-plated brass can be used with brass, copper, or iron pipe.
- It is possible to use stainless steel pipe fittings for air, water, oil, natural gas, and steam by using 304 stainless steel. 150 PSI at 72°F is the maximum pressure for stainless steel pipe fittings.
In construction and manufacturing, steel is arguably one of the most widely used materials. Depending on the end use of a steel component, different steel grades have been developed.
Forged steel fittings have several advantages, such as the typical flow lines of the metal along the component’s profile, which is particularly beneficial for cyclically stressed mechanical components.
Forging stainless steel fittings is one of these applications, which are typically used in fluid and gas transport, chemical processing, food processing, and anywhere where the benefits of stainless steel justify the expense.
Flanges are generally raised rims or lips on fittings, but many flanged plumbing fittings themselves are known as flanges.
A wide range of products can be created using stainless steel grades.
