Compared to pipe fittings that are threaded, buttweld fittings have less absolute roughness and are smooth. Welded Pipe Fittings are commonly used in most applications and are most commonly used in precise applications. Buttweld fittings can either be welded or seamless. Ferritic, austenitic, duplex, and high alloy materials are used.

Welded stainless steel fittings and austenitic ss 304 weight calculator are the most frequently used steel weight & grades. According to the material grade, butt weld fittings have different strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness properties. For ease of welding, welded steel pipe fittings are used with welded applications. There are many types of pipe fittings, including bends, couplings, elbows, crosses, and tees.

Our Steel Buttweld Fittings are made with high quality standards and are very competitively priced. Having a large customer base, we have enough BW Pipe Fitting in stock to meet any order. For better service and pricing, please contact us with your orders and inquiries about Schedule 40 pipe fittings and any other type.

Pipe fittings made of buttweld consist of two blocks of material that are pressed together and welded together. For permanently weld penetration, there are several different strategies for beveling the two pieces. All flat stock, pipe, and tubes will be butt welded. The fittings of type MSS-SP-43 are commonly used for pipes with large diameters as well as small diameters. In most service conditions, buttweld fittings for stainless steel must be inspected using surface and volumetric methods, which results in increased costs.

Among the benefits of Buttweld Fittings Manufacturer in India are: welded fittings are leak-proof, buttweld pipe fittings dimensions with matching pipe schedules will provide BW flow of media. Smooth inner surfaces and slow directional changes can reduce pressure losses, turbulence, and erosion and corrosion. You can learn more about the different Welded Fitting Dimensions and Stainless Steel Pipe Weight Calculator.

Unlike threaded or socket weld fittings, buttweld fittings, for instance elbow buttweld pipe fittings, are available in sizes from 1/2 inch to 72 inches.

There are a number of buttweld fittings made of mild steel, including concentric reducers, long radius elbows, stub ends, pipe caps, pipe bends, buttweld crosses, concentric reducers, and Tees, among others.

Calculation of the weight of buttweld fittings

1. Calculation of elbow weight

According to ASME B16.9, the weight of 90D Elbow Long Radius is:

(S – D – R) / 1000 is calculated as 0.0387 x S x (D-S) x R

Thickness of the wall

Elbow outside diameter (D)

Radius (height) of the center line

*All units are in millimeters.

In comparison, the weight of 45D elbows is half that of 90D elbows, while the weight of 180D elbows is double that of 90D elbows.

There is a two-thirds weight difference between 90 degree Elbow Long Radius,  90 degree Elbow Short Radius and 90 degree elbow weight chart, 45 degree elbow weight chart.

 2. Calculating the weight of tees

It is equal to the product oft of Equal Tee (ASME B16.9) equals to:

A product of (S+1.5) x (D-S-1.5) x (3C-D/2) / 1000 is obtained.

Thickness of the wall

The outside diameter of the tee is D

Length from center to end – C

The units are all in millimeters.

A primary class reducing t-shirt weighs 94% of its equivalent type.

A second class reducing tee weighs 91% as much as its equivalent.

A third class reducing tee weighs 89% of its equal type.

A fourth class reducing tee weighs 86% as much as an equal type.

3. Calculation of reducer weight

Primary class reducers (concentric or eccentric) weigh:

The product of S x (D-S) x H/1000 equals 0.02466

Thickness of the wall

SS pipe weight calculator

Reducer’s larger end’s outside diameter is D

Reducer height, H.

The units are all in millimeters.

Reducers of the second class weigh 94% as much as those of the primary class.

Reducers of the third class weigh 91% of those of the primary class.

Reducers in the fourth class weigh 89% less than those in the first class.
